Shrimp Scampi Pizza

These are soooo delicious! They're quite easy to make.

The original recipe made a rather large batch. It really depends on how large your baguette is. The version below made enough for a single baguette about 20" in length.

Printable Recipe


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for topping
  • Pinch of Creole seasoning (optional)
  • 1 lb shrimp peeled, deveined and chopped (I used 20-24 count shrimp)
  • 1 baguette, halved lengthwise and crosswise

1. Preheat oven to 500 F.

2. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add smashed garlic and saute until golden, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the garlic and place in a food processor.

3. Add parsley, ricotta, Parmesan and Creole seasoning (if using) to food processor. Pulse until combined and creamy.

4. Add minced garlic to skillet and cook for 1 minute. Add in the shrimp, season with salt and pepper, and cook until opaque and done. Stir in 1/4 cup of the ricotta mixture. Remove from heat.

5. Spread the remaining cheese mixture on the cut sides of the bread halves and place them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Top with shrimp mixture and some more Parmesan cheese.

6. Bake 10-12 minutes or until cheese has melted and bread is golden brown.
