Shrimp Scampi Pizza

(Gout-friendly)

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray

  • 1 (13.8-ounce) package refrigerated pizza dough or a precooked pizza crust

  • 1 tbsp cornmeal

  • 1/2 cup fat-free ricotta cheese

  • 1 pound cooked and peeled shrimp, sliced lengthwise

  • 6 cloves roasted* garlic

  • 2 cups shredded part-skim, low-moisture mozzarella cheese

  • 1 tbsp crushed dried basil

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly spray 10-1/2-by-15-1/2-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle cornmeal evenly over pan. Stretch refrigerated pizza dough across pan. Bake dough for 8 minutes. Skip this step if using a precooked pizza crust. 

Mix garlic into ricotta and spread over pizza base. Add a layer of shrimp. Cover pizza with mozzarella and sprinkle with basil. Bake on the bottom rack of the oven for about 12 minutes, or until cheese is bubbling. Cut into 12 pieces and serve immediately.

*If you don't have time to slow-roast garlic in a 325°F oven for an hour, microwave on high for about 30 seconds to soften cloves, then slice them.
