SHRIMP PESTO PIZZAS

February 16, 2015

I get an unexplainable kick out referring to shrimp as “shramps.” See, even just typing that I am now giggling. Naturally, this dinner has come to be referred to as “shrampizzas.” That is not the formal title I am giving the dish in this post, of course. Probably in an effort to market them as more “pin-able” but whatever. Now we all know the truth. But the great thing about homemade pizzas is that I can smear this nutty-rich pesto all the way across those crusts and have my ‘za just the way I like it.

    That’s so funny! My shrimp nickname is “scrimps”. Cracks me up every time.
