  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings

Shrimp and a great assortment of my favorite fresh ingredients make this an amazing pizza. For a vegetarian pizza, simply omit the shrimp.

Ingredients

1-- (12-inch) thin pizza crust
1tablespoon olive oil
1tablespoon minced garlic
1tablespoon dried basil leaves
1/4pound sliced mushrooms
2cups fresh baby spinach
1/2pound medium peeled shrimp, seasoned and cooked
1/2cup chopped tomatoes
1/4cup chopped red onion
1/4pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced, or 1 cup shredded, part-skim, mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven 400F. Coat crust with oil and garlic. Sprinkle with basil.
  2. In a small nonstick skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, sauté mushrooms about 5 minutes or until tender. Add spinach, stirring until wilted.
  3. Evenly spoon spinach mixture over crust and top with remaining ingredients. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is crispy.

Note: Fresh mozzarella cheese has a different texture and taste than packaged mozzarella cheese. It is slightly higher in fat but I think it is worth the flavor.
