Cilantro Pesto Pizza with Shrimp



For the Cilantro-Pesto:

For the Pizza:


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Roll about 1/2 of the dough on a lightly floured surface. If you don’t have a rolling pin (like me), use a chilled wine bottle to help roll the dough flat.
  3. Brush the dough with olive oil and place on a baking sheet in the oven for about 10 minutes or until crust starts to get lightly golden.
  4. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
  5. In a food processor or blender, combine the Cilantro-Pesto ingredients and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Brush the shrimp with olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper and sauté in a pan over medium heat until cooked through (they will be opaque).
  7. Spread a few tablespoons of the cilantro pesto over the pizza and top with buffalo mozzarella, cooked shrimp and cilantro sprigs.
  8. Place in the oven until the cheese melts, about 10 minutes (keep an eye on it).
  9. Serve hot.
