Fig, Shrimp, Prosciutto & Blue Cheese Pizza

Shrimp, Prosciutto, Fig & Blue Cheese Pizza

Hey guys! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  The gorgeous weather was such a welcome surprise! Is next week really Memorial Day?? Beach days are coming!!

We’ve been having some work done on our house and our patio has been covered with ladders and boards for a few weeks but they finally finished and we now have our patio back!  We celebrated by taking out all of the summer furniture and got our grill ON.  Specifically this pizza which was DA BOMB!

Shrimp, Prosciutto, Fig & Blue Cheese Pizza

You can make it by spreading a thin layer of fig spread (you usually find this near the cheese in your supermarket) on a premade pizza crust, then top with some mozzarella cheese, a sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles, thinly sliced prosciutto pieces and grilled shrimp.  To make the shrimp I just tossed it in a little olive oil and seasoned with salt & pepper before grilling.

To grill the pizza, preheat the grill to 450.  Then keep one side of the grill on high and one side of the grill on low and place the pizza on the low side.  Cover the grill and cook until cheese is melted and the crust is crispy.

I found these awesome frozen pizza crusts that are perfect on the grill.  They are thin and crispy and it held up great with all the toppings.

This was inspired by our favorite pizza from a local restaurant that is topped with lobster and fig and blue cheese.  We substituted the lobster with shrimp and added some crispy prosciutto.  You might be tempted to just fold it in half and eat the entire thing in one bite, it was really THAT good.

Can’t wait for more beautiful evenings like this so we can grill and eat out on the patio 🙂

 

WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:

My new logo!

My friend Lesley is a super-talented calligrapher and she hand drew this for me.  I’m in-love with it.  I added the blowing dandelion which I pulled from the photograph on my blog header.  I’m not usually a dandelion lover but the thought of blowing on a dandelion in a field at sunset just fills me with all things happy 🙂
