Succulent Shrimp &
Spinach Grilled Pizza
This stylish presentation doesn’t look like a traditional pizza. Part of the fun is seeing how different people will eat it. Some may cut up the shrimp and then quarter the pizza into traditional slice; some may cut and roll a wedge. It’s pizza freestyling! Makes 3 individual pizzas.
- Olive oil no-stick spray
- 1 pre-made refrigerator pizza dough
- 10-ounce bag fresh spinach
- 18 raw shrimp, butterflied
- 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 cups shredded Italian cheese mix
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- Spray grill with olive oil no-stick spray and light grill. Pre-heat grill temperature to approximately 400°F.
- Spray a wok with olive oil no-stick spray. On your stovetop or the grill, sauté spinach and garlic with a pinch of salt and pepper until wilted. Remove spinach from wok and spray wok with olive oil no-stick spray. Add tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. Put in aluminum foil until ready to use.
- Spray shrimp with olive oil no-stick spray and season with salt and pepper. Grill shrimp until done, about 2-3 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil until ready to use.
- Separate dough into 3 balls and roll each one out. Spray both sides of dough with olive oil no-stick spray. Carefully slide the dough onto the grill. (Keep an eye on the dough. Depending on the heat of the fire, the dough may cook rather quickly.)
- Slide a pizza peel (or spatulas) underneath to loosen the dough and to check for doneness. The dough may start to bubble. If it does, pop the bubbles with a fork. There should be grill marks on the dough, just be careful not to over-cook. The dough should be firm, just starting to turn color.
- Using your peel or spatulas, remove the dough from the grill and flip it over onto a piece of aluminum foil, cooked side up. Coat the top of the dough with more olive oil no-stick spray, then layer the cheese first, followed by the spinach, tomatoes and shrimp onto each pizza. Don’t go crazy with toppings or the pizzas will get too heavy.
- Slide a floured peel under your pizza and place it back on the grill, uncooked side down. Cover the grill immediately. It’s done when the underside of the pizza is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve immediately.
