Cooking Shrimp Pizza:
Step 1: Prepare the dough.
If you purchased a ready-made yeast dough, as I did, then defrost it, following the directions on the package. Usually you need to unpack it and put it in a deep plate, and wait until it gets softer, knead. I always cover the dough with cling film so that it does not weather during defrosting.
After the dough becomes soft and suitable for further cooking, lay it on a surface lightly sprinkled with flour and roll it into a cake that is suitable for your baking dish in size.
Step 2: Prepare the sauce.
And while you wait for the test, there is time to do the cooking of the sauce. First prepare the onions, peeling them from the husks and cutting them into small cubes. Then heat vegetable oil in a pan, preferably olive oil, and fry the onion in it until it is golden-transparent.
Meanwhile, put the canned tomatoes in a blender and chop in a puree. You should have a thick, homogeneous mass that looks like tomato paste.
Pour the tomato puree into a pan to the onion, add basil and pepper to taste. Do not forget to salt. Cook the sauce over low heat for 8-10 minutes. Do not forget to stir the mass all the time so that it does not burn.
While preparing the sauce, rinse the green onion and cut it into small circles. Add it to the finished tomato mass as soon as remove it from the heat.
To make the sauce less acidic, add a little granulated sugar to it and mix well.
Step 3: Prepare the shrimp.
Pour water into a saucepan, put everything on fire and bring to a boil. Shrimp dip in boiling water on 2-3 minutes, this is usually enough to make seafood ready. Then throw them in a colander and wait for the water to drain. Important: if you took the unpeeled shrimp, then you need to remove the shell from them just after cooking.
Step 4: Prepare the cheese.
Grind hard cheese with a grater. At the same time, the device should first be moistened with cool water to avoid pieces of food sticking to it.
Cut the mozzarella cheese into thin slices, you do not need to rub it.
Step 5: Form and bake the shrimp pizza.
Lubricate the baking dish with a small amount of vegetable oil, and set the oven to heat until 180 degrees. Place the pizza dough base on a baking sheet and place in a hot oven on 10 minutes. During this time, the cake will grab a little. Take it out and coat with the sauce that you made from tomato, herbs and onions. After which it remains only to lay out the filling, you need to do this in the following order: first lay the shrimps and slices of mozzarella, and sprinkle with grated hard cheese on top of everything. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees and put the pizza baked in it on 10 minutes. After which you will see that the base is finally baked, and the cheese is melted, slightly soaked in sauce and spread, covering the shrimp. This all means that the pizza is ready, so feel free to take it out of the oven and serve it to the table.
Step 6: Serve the shrimp pizza.
Serve hot pizza with shrimp, which is when it is tastier and more aromatic than anything else. Transfer the dish to a large plate or board, divide it with a knife into pieces, according to the number of participants in the meal, and proceed to the meal as soon as possible.
