Don't leave without this! ...
Mother Nature teased us with a glimpse of Spring and now we can't stop thinking about ditching the heavy casseroles, hot soup and indoor cooking for some brightly - colored, light but satisfying, cooked on the grill meals!On the menu: Grilled Shrimp Pizza What you'll need:
|¾||pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined|
|1||red onion, sliced into rounds|
|¼||cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing|
|½||teaspoon dried oregano|
|Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper|
|1||pound prepared pizza dough, at room temperature|
|1||cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved|
|½||cup crumbled feta cheese|
|2||tablespoons chopped fresh parsley|
Preheat a grill to medium high. Toss the shrimp and onion in a bowl with the olive oil and oregano. Season with salt and pepper.
Stretch the pizza dough into a roughly 8-by-10-inch rectangle. Lightly brush the grill with olive oil. Lay the dough on the grill and cook until the top begins to bubble and the bottom is marked, about 3 minutes. Remove with tongs and put cooked-side up on a cutting board. Brush with olive oil.
Grill the shrimp and onion, turning, until the onion softens and the shrimp are lightly charred, about 5 minutes. Top the crust with the shrimp and onion, then slide the pizza back onto the grill. Top with the tomatoes and feta, cover and grill until the dough is cooked through and the cheese is soft, about 5 more minutes.
