Healthy Shrimp Deluxe Pizza

Healthy Shrimp Deluxe Pizza at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet - thismamacooks.com Today, I’m off to Boulder to meet Holly Clegg, cookbook author and frequent guest poster here at This Mama Cooks! She’s doing several book signings here in Colorado to support her new women's lifestyle cookbook:  Too Hot in the Kitchen: Secret To Sizzle At Any Age. Check out her blog, The Healthy Cooking Blog and her website, HollyClegg.com, to find out if she’s doing any book signings or TV and radio appearances near you.

I love how Holly takes something not-so-healthy and makes it good for you. This recipe for healthy pizza topped with shrimp and vegetables like spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes  is from her cookbook, Gulf Coast Favorites.

You can make your own pizza crust using my  healthy whole wheat pizza dough recipe or buy premade pizza dough at the store. If you’re gluten free, use a two of Udi’s Gluten Free pizza crusts. I like keeping a supply of their gluten free pizza crusts in my freezer so I can make pizza any time I’m in the mood.

You could also turn this recipe into a party appetizer by serving it on flatbread or making mini pizzas.

Healthy Shrimp Deluxe Pizza

No need to order out for pizza when you can easily have hot-out-of-the-oven pizza in the comfort of your own home. Shrimp and a great assortment of my favorite fresh ingredients make this an amazing pizza. For a vegetarian pizza, simply omit the shrimp.
