Rummage through the Fridge Pizza

I'm still here. I've just been a bit busy as I'm in the final phase of post-production on my short film that I had I shot last summer. It's my pet project at the moment and so it's keeping me busy. Apologies for not being able to comment as much as I used to. But trust me when I say that I've been reading/bookmarking your blogs during my down times. What's not to love about it, right? Easy to make with basically any ingredient found in your fridge. Perfect for those leftovers you have lying around in the fridge. It's one of those "I still have leftovers from holidays that I need to eat up so I can start cooking fresh again" I use up the last bits of honey-baked ham. I had some shrimp in the freezer that I nearly forgot about and an avocado that's been begging to be eaten for the past week. Good thing I made a fresh bath of pizza dough a couple weeks before that's safely tucked away in the freezer, so it was an easy decision in terms of what I could make with them. Besides, who wouldn't love a delicious yummy pizza. This is almost like a Hawaiian-pizza with a little added pizzaz from the shrimp and avocado.

Happy eating!

Shrimp, Ham, Pineapple. Avocado Pizza

1 premade or homemadepizza dough
10 medium shrimp (cleaned and shelled) - rough chopped
1/4 c pineapple tidbits (drained of juices)
1/4 c Honey-Baked ham pieces
1 small ripe avodado (sliced or diced)
1 1/3 c shredded mozzarella 
2 tsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp Paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/4 c tomato sauce
extra virgin olive oil

Preheat your oven to 400˚F

In a small bowl, toss the chopped shrimp with the paprika, salt and pepper, and 1 tsp lemon juice. Set aside.

Roll out the pizza dough onto a baking sheet. Poke the dough with a fork all over and brush the edges with some extra virgin olive oil. Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the dough, then the cheese, followed by the shrimp, pineapple, and ham. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.

Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes. 2-3 minutes before removing, carefully add the avocado. Baked for another 3 minutes. then remove and slice.

Serve warm.

Yes, what's not to love about pizza? Especially that it can be made healthy and nutritious by adding amazing ingredients like the ones in this recipe.

Never thought to put avocado on a pizza but does it ever sound so good! I love the idea of a Fridge Pizza: you can't get tired of it because it's always something different each time. 8-)

The avocado takes away from the pizza. It makes it non appealing to eat. Remember we eat with our eyes first.

What a name of a meal that says it all. Love that you can probably never get tired of it as you most likely will never make the same thing twice.

Every one of my meals comes to fruition by rummaging through my perpetually empty fridge. But very few looks as good as your pizza does!

I love the idea of avacado on pizza, but never would have thought of it on my own
