I'm a fan of most seafood and especially shrimps in almost any size or any method of preparation. And since everyone likes pizza (right? right?), then it was time to take my love of prawns further and put them onto a pizza base made of crispy wholemeal dough. To make the whole thing very fresh-tasting, I kept the heavy ingredients to a low (just grated mozzarella, but I chose a really good buffalo mozzarella so its full flavor could really be felt in the final dish), and added a lot of fresh ingredients (like cherry tomatoes, a squeeze of lemon and plenty of chopped parsley). The result was delicious, light and perfect by my book. Enjoy :)
Last year: Flourless chocolate cake with choco-whiskey sauce.
Two years ago: Poulet Vallée d'Auge (Chicken, apple and Calvados cream stew) (French).
Three years ago: Sprinkle butter cookies (Italian).
Four years ago: Chinese fried rice, Broccoli and ham torte and Cardamom lassi (Indian).
- 1 round of whole wheat pizza crust
- 3 tablespoons tomato-basil sauce from the jar
- 100 g grated buffalo mozzarella cheese
- a handful of frozen or fresh shrimps, peeled and deveined
- 1 big garlic clove, sliced
- 5-6 cherry tomatoes, halved
- salt and pepper to taste
- a squeeze of lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Roll the dough into a thin round shape. Spread the tomato sauce on top, then sprinkle the grated cheese on top evenly.
Top with the shrimps, garlic and cherry tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Put the pizza in the preheated oven and bake it for 20-25 minutes. Take it out and sprinkle lemon juice and freshly chopped parsley on top. Serve immediately. It's done, dig in! :)
