Instructions

Asian Shrimp Pizza

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. In a large skillet, melt olive oil and butter over medium-low heat. Add garlic, wine and lemon zest; cook for 1 minute.  
  2. Add sweet chili sauce and lemon juice; simmer 2 minutes. Add shrimp and cook only until pink. Remove from pan and set aside.  
  3. Roll out pizza dough to 12 inches; place on a baking sheet sprinkled with a small amount of cornmeal. Generously brush dough with garlic-chili sauce mixture.  
  4. Top with shrimp and remaining sauce, mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and crust is brown. Garnish with chopped cilantro and sesame seeds.  

Basic Italian Pizza Dough*  

  1. Mix the flours, yeast and salt in a food processor fitted with a dough blade or a standing mixer with a dough hook.  
  2. Combine the water and honey. While the mixer is running, gradually add the water mixture; beat until the dough forms a ball. If the dough is sticky, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time. If the dough is too dry, add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time.  
  3. Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead into a smooth, firm ball.  
  4. Grease a large bowl with 2 teaspoons olive oil and add the ball of dough. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap; place in a warm area to let it double in size, about 1 hour  
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 2 equal pieces. Cover each with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let them rest for 10 minutes prior to forming the pizza crusts.  

Makes two pizzas.  

*Tips and Tricks:

  • The dough can be made 24 hours prior to cooking, and kept refrigerated. 
  • Save the second ball for later by freezing.  Place the dough in a gallon size plastic bag sprayed with cooking spray and place in the freezer.  Use within 2-3 months.  When ready to use, let the dough stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. 
  • Ensure pizza dough is at room temperature for ease in forming the pizza crust.
