Shrimp Fra Diavolo Pizza {Pizza Home Chef Giveaway}

August 13, 2012 by Ali

It is week six of the Tomato Love Recipe Exchange, and I admit it was probably one of the topics I was most looking forward to — pizza pizza!

And our giveaway is out of this world for you pizza lovers — a 7-piece Pro Premium Pizza Making Kit from Pizza Home Chef! You must read below for more info about how to enter this one. This pizza kit is stunning!!!

For something new this weekend, I decided to translate one of my favorite pasta recipes into this Shrimp Fra Diavolo Pizza. This spicy, fresh and flavorful dish is one of my all-time favorites. And I love how the simple recipe feature the tomatoes just as much as the shrimp. So I picked up a batch of beautiful grape tomatoes and basil at the market, put the amazing pizza making kit to use (seriously, too fun), and soon this heavenly pizza was emerging off my baking stone with a flourish. So good!!! I seriously need to put shrimp on pizza more often. Loved using the sliced grape tomatoes too instead of crushing them into a sauce. And for any of you who worry at the “diavolo” reference, you can totally control the spicyness to taste. With the ingredients I included on the recipe, I thought the heat was pretty mild, but definitely gave it an extra delicious kick.

So read below for the recipe, check out the amazing pizza kit and pizza-making tips from Pizza Dan, and be sure to also take a minute to read up on the latest with Recipe for Change. So many great things are happening this summer to support our nation’s tomato growers. Would love to have you get involved!

Shrimp Fra Diavolo Pizza

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 medium pizza dough, homemade or storebought (I used Pizza Dan's recipe
  • 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp.) olive oil, divided
  • 1 lb. large uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • pinch of salt and black pepper
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup dry white or red wine
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • grated Parmesan cheese

Method

Preheat oven (and baking stone if using) to 425 degrees F.

Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season shrimp with salt and pepper, then add to the skillet. Saute for one minute, then flip shrimp and saute until the shrimp is just seared on both sides. Remove and transfer shrimp to a separate plate.

Add an additional 2 Tbsp. oil to the skillet. Add onions and saute for another 5 minutes, or until translucent. Add garlic and saute for one minute. Add wine, and deglaze pan for one minute. Then add tomatoes, crushed red pepper, and oregano. Reduce heat to medium-low, and let simmer and reduce for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.

Meanwhile, brush or mist the top of the pizza crust with the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil. Sprinkle about half of the mozzarella cheese evenly over the top of the pizza, leaving a 1-inch border. Then evenly spread the tomato mixture on top of the cheese. Add the shrimp in an even layer, and then cover with the remaining mozzarella.

Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until dough has risen and cheese is melted. Remove and garnish with chopped fresh basil and Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

This Week’s Prize: “Pro Premium Pizza Making Kit” from Pizza Home Chef

This week’s giveaway winner is going to hit the pizza making jackpot! Cassie and I are thrilled to be giving away this “Pro Premium Pizza Making Kit” from Pizza Home Chef. This 7-piece set includes:

  • Our thickest, largest rectangular pizza stone
  • A dough docker that performs like a champ
  • A perfectly engineered stainless steel rocker knife
  • A spoodle to spread your sauce with flair
  • A wood peel to slide your pizza into the oven
  • A metal peel to slide it out with ease
  • A 20-inch serving tray to serve your creation in style.

Pizza Dan (such a kind man!) sent us a set to try out, and I’m pretty sure that Cassie’s and my texts back and forth as we were cooking were overflowing with exclamation points. This set is amazing!!! It was like Christmas unwrapping each piece of the set, and even more fun getting to try them out. I had never used a dough docker before, but it was totally fun. Nor did I know the term “spoodle”, but it definitely gave the sauce action (or in this pizza’s case, the tomato action!) a bit more flair. But I definitely felt like I was in one of my favorite restaurant pizza kitchens when using the two peels, the beautiful and sturdy baking stone, and the dough docker! Ha – no more little pizza slicer for me. That docker is so fun, and does the job in a second! All finished, of course, with the beautiful serving tray. I’m already planning my first pizza-making party so that my friends can have their own pro pizza fun too! Definitely a fantastic set, made with high-quality ingredients, that you could enjoy for years and years. I highly recommend it!

Check out the set here on Pizza Home Chef’s website, and would also encourage you to check out Pizza Home Chef’s Facebook, and YouTube pages!

  5. These mini pizzas (Mummy’s Favorite) are great for Halloween: http://kidtimes.wordpress.com/2011/10/14/recipe-for-fun-13/ We have varied the recipe by using pita bread in lieu of English muffins:

    Ingredients
    English muffin bread
    Pizza sauce
    Black olives
    Scallions
    Red or green pepper
    Cheese sticks or slices

    Instructions
    1. Heat the oven to 350º F. For each mummy, spread a tablespoon of pizza sauce onto half of an English muffin (toast it first, if you like).
    2. Set olive slices in place for eyes and add round slices of green onion or bits of red or green pepper for pupils.
    3. Lay strips of pulled-apart cheese sticks across the muffin for the mummy?s wrappings.
    4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the muffin is toasty.
