FUSION FRIDAY: Pizza de Camarão

FUSION FRIDAY: Pizza de Camarão 

Who doesn't love pizza?! We all love a slice here and there. When I think about Portuguese appetizers, I think of camarao e alho. Shrimp full of flavors from wine, tons of garlic and just enough spice. Why not combine the two and make a delicious garlic shrimp pizza. 

Here's how you do it!

For the shrimp
2 tbsp olive oil
Pinch of dried red pepper flakes
6 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 lb of shrimp (peeled, deveined, and tail off)
1/4 cup of dry white wine
1 tbsp tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
1 tsp of piri piri or tabasco sauce 
s+p to taste 
Marinate shrimp with olive oil, minced garlic, pepper flakes and piri piri for a minimum of one hour. In a large skillet, heat the oil over a medium high heat. Add the marinated shrimp and saute until it starts to turn pink. Only takes a couple minutes. Reduce heat and add s+p and white wine. Let cook for only one more minute to burn off the alcohol. Sprinkle parsley on top. 

For the Pizza
1 store bought pizza dough 
1/2 of tomato sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
4 plum tomatoes diced. 
Preheat the oven to 425ºF
Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough onto a floured counter top, until you get the ideal shape you are looking for. Place the pizza dough on a baking sheet. With a fork prick fork marks all over the pizza dough to avoid creating large bubbles while baking. Bake for 10 minutes. 
After 10 minutes take your pizza dough out and spread tomato sauce evenly. Then sprinkle cheese over. Arrange the shrimp and tomatoes on top. Drizzle with evoo. Bake for 15 minutes.
