While I was at the grocery store yesterday I decided that we would make pizzas last night before I went to set up for MOPS. This always seems like a much better idea than it actually turns out to be. I am not sure why, but my dough skills are terrible! This goes for all types of dough- I just am not good at working with it. While others make beautiful things with dough, I am lucky to get it rolled out and even. Nevermind some sort of shape. This includes pizza. So no laughing at my pizza pictures! I made the usual cheese pizzas for the girls. I do love Wegman's dough (for dough). Then I wanted to make some sort of grown up pie. I remembered that I had leftover shrimp scampi in the fridge, so an idea was born: Shrimp Scampi Pizza!
A couple of weeks ago, a good friend gave me some garlic oil. I LOVE the stuff! It adds such flavor to even the simplest things. I used that as my sauce- like a white pizza. Then I added the shrimp, some grated Gruyere that I had in the cheese bin, (yes, I love cheese so much that it has it's own bin in my fridge), and some fresh basil.
Yummy!!! It looked so good, and smelled so good- it really was so good! Here are the rest of the pictures so that you can laugh at my dough skillz. I highly recommend Shrimp Scampi pizza.
Have a great weekend!
