Shrimp Scampi is one of my favourite meals! You really just can’t go wrong with shrimp in a butter and garlic sauce and it’s so quick and easy to make! Usually it’s served over pasta but it’s also great in pizza form! You basically cook some shrimp in butter along with garlic and spread it over pizza dough before covering in cheese and baking until the cheese is melted and everything is nice and golden brown and oh, so good! I like to serve shrimp scampi pizza topped with fresh chopped parsley and wedges of lemon to squeeze juice onto it just before serving!
