Day 52: California-Style Pizza

At my house, we love to take frozen pizza and "doctor" it up.  My daughter invented this one and I think it is the best one yet.  It is a take on a favourite restaurant pizza we like to share.  The recipe calls for a few simple ingredients including a homemade pesto recipe that you can make ahead of time and it takes just minutes to prepare.

1 frozen thin crust pepperoni pizza
12 jumbo shrimp, cooked
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup basil pesto (recipe here)
1 tsp dry thyme
Coarse cracked black pepper

1) Place frozen pizza on a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with thyme and parmesan.
2) In a piping bag, drizzle pizza with pesto in a zig zag pattern.
3) Arrange shrimp on pizza and season with pepper.
4) Place pizza in a 450F oven for approximately 20 minutes.
