When I’m in a scramble to create dinner at times, I admit, I sometimes run through the drive-thru or order a pizza. Time is huge issue with me in trying to prepare a dinner and spend time with my family after a long day at work. Luckily I’ve been find more and more recipes to create a deliciously scrumptious dinner, and not spend most of the night slaving away in the kitchen.
One of those dishes is Thai Chili Shrimp Pizza! This pizza combines many tastes that I most certainly enjoy… Thai peanut flavoring… spicy chili pepper… delicious shrimp… and of course, PIZZA! Best part? You can make this meal in 30 minutes or less.
1 can of refrigerated pizza crust
8-12 oz of cooked deveined detailed peeled medium shrimp (thaw if frozen)
1/4 cup of hot water
1/4 cup of orange marmalade
3/4 cup of crunch peanut butter
2 1/2 cups shredded Italian cheeses
2 tablespoons of Thai chili paste
Go ahead and preheat your oven to 400ºF or the degrees stated on the can. Spray large baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray or grease with oil. Unroll dough on the baking sheet. Bake 5-10 minutes or as directed on the can.
While the crust is baking, cut your shrimp in half and place in a mixing bowl. In a small bowl, mix together the marmalade, chili paste, and peanut butter thoroughly, while adding in 1/4 cup of hot water. A wire whisk is super helpful during this step for blending!
Once the crust is done pre-baking, spread the remaining peanut butter mixture over crust. Make sure to keep the mixture within 1/4 inch of edges. Add on the shrimp and then top the pizza off with the cheese!
Bake the pizza an additional 6 to 8 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown. Once you’ve removed the pizza from the oven, sprinkle on Italian seasoning.
Let the pizza cool for a bit before you start slicing. Then you can enjoy this perfect combination of spice and seafood! This pizza has definitely become one of my favorite quick-meals to create on a whim.
Another reason why this is one of my favorite pizzas to create is because it can be used for any occasion! Want to serve something a little different than regular cheese and pepperoni are your next Game Day party? This is your pizza! Need a munchie for after a dinner party? This pizza is gourmet enough to make a great snack after a nice dinner with friends. Enjoy!
