Pizza Part 17: Spicy Shrimp and Asparagus Pizza

This is one of my original pizza recipes, and I have to say, it came out so stinking good that it was what everyone wanted. I make two different sheet pans of pizza when I make it, and while the other was very good, the Spicy Shrimp and Asparagus Pizza went like hot cakes off the griddle! I may have to just make two of them at a time from now on. By the way, I used only 1 tsp of sriracha in the sauce, but that was because Timmy and Megan don’t like things too hot; add an extra tsp of it if your family likes it spicier. Also, I would have thrown some red pepper flakes on top too, but didn’t for the same reason.

So, let’s get cooking!

You’ll want to steam the asparagus a little, so cut into pieces about an inch long. Place in a bowl with a small amount of water, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for about 3 minutes.

While that’s going on, mince the red bell pepper finely.

Time to make the sauce! In a small sauce pan, add the cream cheese, milk, minced red bell pepper, garlic powder, black pepper, and sriracha sauce. Cook over low-ish heat to melt the cream cheese, stirring often. Stir in the parsley flakes. Allow to cool for a few minutes.

Spread the pizza dough on the greased pan, and then spread the sauce evenly on top. Sprinkle on the shredded mozzarella and pepper jack cheeses.

Distribute the asparagus and shrimp. Bake at 425° for 18 minutes. And now, dig in! Enjoy! ~TMMF
