Part II: Shrimp Caesar Pizza

July 24, 2009

This is probably my favorite pizza out of the three I made last night. I had some leftover caesar dressing from the night before so I used that as a sauce. Luckily for me, B doesn’t like shrimp so I didn’t have to share this pizza 🙂 In the process of cleaning out my fridge, I don’t always have the ingredients I really want, but with a little improvising I came up with some easy substitutions. I thought the pizza would be pretty bare with just shrimp and romaine lettuce so I dug into my freezer and found some edamame peas. Sounds weird, but it really worked! I heated them up and topped them on the pizza. It lended to a nice firm texture, and since the flavor is so subtle, it didn’t contrast with the rest of the dish. This pizza didn’t even have to go in the oven. I just grilled the pita bread until warm and topped it with the Caesar dressing, edamame peas, cold shrimp, romaine lettuce, diced red onion and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. It was divine!
