Ingredients

  • 1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 3/4 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees F)
  • 1 3/4 to 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, plus additional for kneading and dredging
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, plus 1 teaspoon for greasing the bowl
  • Cilantro Pesto, recipe follows
  • 8 ounces buffalo mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • Grilled Shrimp, recipe follows
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish
Cilantro Pesto:
  • 3/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Grilled Shrimp:
  • 16 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Whisk together the yeast and 1/4 cup of the water in a small bowl and let sit for 5 minutes to proof. Place 1 3/4 cups of the flour in a large bowl with the salt. Add the yeast mixture, the remaining water, and oil and stir until combined. Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead until smooth. Grease a large bowl with the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil, add the dough, and turn to coat. Cover and place in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Preheat the grill to high. Once the dough has risen, divide it in half. Divide each half into 2 balls. Roll each ball into an 8-inch circle. Brush with oil and grill on both sides until golden brown. Spread a few tablespoons of the Cilantro Pesto over each pizza, top with a few slices of buffalo mozzarella, and then top with 4 shrimp and cilantro leaves. Place the pizza on the grill until the cheese melts. Serve hot.

Cilantro Pesto:

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.;

Grilled Shrimp:

Preheat the grill to medium-high.

Brush each shrimp with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until just cooked through (shrimp will be opaque and turn pink).
