It's rare I meet a pizza I don't like, but this Shrimp Scampi Pizza is in a class of its own. With a super thin crust, a healthy dose of garlic and lemon juice, salty feta, and plenty of shrimp, you'll likely find yourself craving this pizza instead of a bowl of pasta

Ingredients
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp red hot pepper flakes
  • 1 lb extra large shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails removed
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley, plus more for topping
  • Whole wheat dough (1/3 of recipe below or store-bought)
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 oz. shaved parmesan cheese
Homemade Whole Wheat Dough
  • 1/2 Tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 3/4 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.

  2. Melt butter and olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add garlic  and let cook for about 1-2 minutes. Add in red pepper flakes and cook for 30 more seconds.

  3. Add shrimp to the pan in an even layer and season with a little salt and pepper. When shrimp start turning pink (about 2 minutes), flip and cook another minute or so on the other side. When cooked through, remove shrimp to a bowl and set aside.

  4. Add lemon juice and wine to the pan and sprinkle in parsley. Let sauce cook for a few minutes to reduce a bit.

  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out into a thin 12-inch round. Transfer round to a foil-covered 12-inch pan. Brush dough lightly with lemon olive oil reduction.

  6. Sprinkle feta cheese and parmesan over the pizza and top with the shrimp.

  7. Bake for about 15 minutes until crust starts to brown and cheese is melting. Top with additional chopped parsley, slice, and serve.

Homemade Whole Wheat Dough
  1. In a large bowl, combine yeast and water. Let sit for 3 minutes. Stir in salt, honey or sugar, and olive oil. 

  2. Using a wooden spoon, stir in whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour until just blended. If dough is still wet, add in a bit more flour, 1 Tbsp at a time. 

  3. Cover the bowl with a towel and set aside at room temperature for about two hours, so dough can rise. Once risen, either use dough or refrigerate if not using right away.
