Shrimp Pizza with Smoked Mozzarella and Caramelized Vegetables

Shrimp Pizza with Smoked Mozzarella and Caramelized Vegetables

Pizza is trendy! But skip the takeout and make your own signature (and better for-you!) pie! Simply think outside the pizza box when it comes to toppings.

Load up with colorful veggies, trade traditional pepperoni for lean protein and top with a light sprinkle of flavorful cheese for a punch of fresh flavor.

1 orange bell pepper, diced
2/3 cup frozen corn, thawed and drained
2 garlic cloves, minced
18 medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and patted dry
½ teaspoon dried oregano
¼ teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon olive oil
¼ cup green salsa
1 12-inch ready-to-bake 100% whole-wheat thin pizza crust
3 ounces smoked mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 green onions, sliced

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and corn; cook until slightly browned and caramelized, about 9 minutes. Stir in garlic. Remove vegetables from skillet; set aside. In a small bowl, toss shrimp with oregano, chili powder and cumin.

Add oil to the skillet used for the vegetables; heat over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and cook until opaque; about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vegetable mixture. Spread salsa over pizza crust, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with shrimp and vegetable mixture. Sprinkle with mozzarella.

Place pizza directly on oven rack positioned in lower third of oven; bake until cheese melts, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with green onion; cut into 8 slices.
