Before we move on to pizza, I had to share with you a photo of my friend & former roommate, Kristyn, and I this weekend. We met during our internships almost six years and lived together for a couple of years. It's nice we can still meet up and catch up like no time has passed at all.
Congrats to Kristyn & her fiance on their upcoming wedding! Also, she sent me some sweet soup recipes to make in my food processor so stay tuned for those!
When I saw this photo & recipe the other day, I knew I had to make it. All things I love: goat cheese, pesto, shrimp. Put them together? Yes ma'm! This was one of the easiest things I've ever made and it tasted great.
I used pre-made pizza dough (Boboli) for the first time and was not a big fan of the taste. Next time, I will use homemade for sure. Another tip? I went overload on the goat cheese because it's one of my favorites but it is way overpowering so use it sparingly. I ended up picking some off my pizza actually!
Shrimp & Goat Cheese Pizza
Directions: Unthaw frozen shrimp by cooking with a little olive oil & garlic salt in a pan but don't cook them all the way. Mix the pesto and spread evenly across the pizza dough. Spread mozz cheese evenly. Then, add shrimp and goat cheese. Bake at 375 for about 15-20 minutes. Keep an eye on it. I like mine really well done.
Happy Valentines Day to my one & only! I love you, Rick.
