Shrimp Pizza with Mezzetta

Many thanks to Mezzetta for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging me to spice up my favorite Holiday recipe. I love a good pizza, and this recipe helped make a Mezzetta memory with my family. I ended up hurting really bad after physical therapy on Friday. Jeremy decided he would cook for us on Saturday. I had purchased my ingredients to make a shrimp pizza including Mezzetta sun dried tomatoes and peperoncini, but I couldn’t get off the couch. He was sweet enough to make the pizza for us.  It was by far the best pizza we had ever made at home, and one of the best I have ever eaten. The Mezzetta peperoncini and sun dried tomatoes added just the right flavors to compliment the shrimp and cilantro.

    Ohhhhhh shrimp on my pizza? I’ve never had that. Looks amazing. I love olive, but I can’t say I have ever paired them with shrimp. Which is so odd since I love post. YUMtastic!
