Grilled Responsible Belize Shrimp Pizza

Serves 4

All you need:

  • Belize Shrimp Pizza2 packages whole wheat naan bread (4 pieces)
  • 1 cup Hy-Vee roasted garlic Alfredo sauce, divided
  • 1 cup shredded Asiago cheese, divided
  • 1 cup roasted red pepper strips, diced, divided
  • 24 Responsible Choice Belize shrimp, shells removed and cut in half down the center
  • 1 lemon, cut in half, plus some for serving, optional
  • 2 tbsp prepared pesto sauce
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, torn
  • 3 radishes, thinly sliced for garnish, optional

All you do:

  1. Preheat grill or grill pan.
  2. Place the naan on a baking sheet. Spread 1/4 cup Alfredo sauce on each naan and top each with 1/4 of the Asiago cheese and 1/4 cup roasted pepper. Place 12 halves of Responsible Choice Belize Shrimp on each pizza.
  3. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for about 4 minutes, turning as needed.
  4. While pizza is cooking, place lemons on grill and cook just until slightly charred.
  5. After the bottom of the pizza is slightly charred, turn the grill off and close the lid just long enough to melt the cheese and finish cooking the shrimp, about 2 minutes.
  6. To garnish each pizza, top with a drizzle of the grilled lemon and pesto, fresh basil and radish. Serve with extra lemon, if desired.

Chef’s Note: Responsible Choice Belize Shrimp cook very quickly. As soon as they turn pink, they are done. Don’t overcook, or they will be rubbery. To keep the radishes crisp, keep in cold water until ready to use.

My name is Jessica Dolson, but you can call me Jess. I am a July 2012 graduate from IWCC Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management program. Since I can remember, I have had a passion for food. Growing up cooking and eating what we grew or raised made me realize how important it is for me to share that passion with others. My major focus being a chef is education, through holding classes, tasting events, wine dinners and live cooking demonstrations. It is very important to me to teach children and adults what they are eating and where their food comes from. I have learned to show people the nutritional differences between foods and show them a variety of ways to cook simple dishes, which results in families coming together and enjoying food with each other.
