Week 31: Sweet Chili Shrimp Pizza

Sweet Chili Shrimp Pizza

I have been called a shopaholic probably more times than I can remember, but one of the things I’m proud of is being a smart grocery store shopaholic.  I live for a deal- so when I saw these shrimp on sale, I knew I had to have them and try out a tangy recipe.  I’ve been eyeing various dynamite shrimp recipes for awhile now, but none seemed as delicious {and healthy} as this one from Skinny Taste.  The shrimp recipe is to die for alone or with a salad, but it is brought to a completely new level with the pizza crust, mozzarella cheese and scallions.  I could see myself serving this pizza as a quick appetizer for a summer party or eating it for lunch at work.  The recipe is pretty much painless and the benefits are worth it!

Sweet Chili Shrimp Pizza
ingredients:

5 tbsp light mayonnaise
3 tbsp Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
1 tsp Sriracha
1 lb large shrimp, shelled and deveined
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp canola oil
1 premade pizza crust
1 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese
Cooking spray
1 scallions, chopped
bunch of basil leaves, chopped
pepper, to taste

Sweet Chili Shrimp Pizza

directions:

Preheat oven according to pizza dough instructions. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, thai sweet chili sauce and sriracha; set aside.

Coat the shrimp with cornstarch. Heat a large skillet or wok on high heat; add oil. When oil is hot, add the shrimp to pan and cook tossing a few times until cooked through, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from pan and combine with the sauce coating.

Cover pizza crust with part-skim mozzarella and top with shrimp.

Spray cooking spray on a foiled lined baking sheet. Place pizza on baking sheet and bake for 8 to 11 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted. Remove from oven, and top with fresh scallions, basil and pepper.
