Shrimp, Sweet Onion, and Roasted Red Pepper Pesto Pizza

Shrimp, Sweet Onion, and Roasted Red Pepper Pesto Pizza created by Mika G.

This has “crunch, fresh and vibrant flavors, and heady herbal aromas”.

Ready In:



  • To make the roasted red pepper pesto (this is optional but highly recommemded), process the garlic and salt in a food processor until garlic is minced.
  • Add in the roasted red peppers, parmesan, basil, olive oil, sugar, and red pepper flakes; process until smooth; use immediately or transfer to a covered container and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
  • To make the pizza: position an oven rack in the center of the oven and place a baking stone (if using one) on the rack; preheat oven to 500°.
  • In a large bowl, toss the shrimp with the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and red pepper flakes.
  • Remove the boboli crust from the plastic bag and save the packet of tomato sauce for another time.
  • Place the pizza crust on a pizza screen, pizza pan, or rimless baking sheed, or on a pizza peel ready to slide directly onto the baking stone.
  • Spread the pesto evenly over the pizza crust, leaving a 1-inch border.
  • Scatter the onion and bell pepper over the sauce.
  • Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top.
  • Scatter the basil over the cheese; place the shrimp in a single layer over the cheese.
  • Place the pizza in the oven on the rack or stone; bake about 10-12 minutes, until the crust is crisp and a deep golden brown, and the shrimp are pink and slightly curled.
  • Slice the pizza into wedges and serve immediately.

    GREAT pizza! I would make some improvements to the roasted red pepper pesto, though. More garlic, parmesan, olive oil and through in some pine nuts or almonds, as well, as usually is in pestos.

    This was an awesome shrimp pizza. We made it with a homemade crust and it came out very well. Probably should have patted the shrimp dry with a paper towel before mixing them with the oil, lemon juice, etc., because there was liquid on the top of the pizza when we took it out of the oven. Dabbed it off with a paper towel and it was fine. Will definitely make this pizza again.

    I had been looking for a good shrimp pizza and never found it... not in restaurants, not at home, every time I was disappointed... But this time I was astounded, this was by far the best shrimp pizza I ever tasted and my friends and family too. Amazing! Thanks!

    This was great! We bought pepperoni pizza for the kids and made this "gourmet" pizza for ourselves. It was a winner! I'm allergic to tomatoes so I'm always looking for an alternative to tomato sauce and this fit the bill exactly. I think it would be great with rotisserie chicken also. Thanks for a great new pizza recipe!
