Shrimp Scampi Flatbread will be your go-to dish this summer and is packed with all the amazing flavors of shrimp scampi but on a pizza!
Lemony shrimp, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, garlic butter, and a simple arugula salad all piled up on a flatbread is my idea of perfection! It's one of those dishes that you can make for a weeknight dinner, casual party, or special occasion and everyone will be happy. I mean it's basically shrimp scampi on a pizza - there aren't too many things that taste better. Plus it couldn't be easier to make and is grilled, making it perfect for summer.
Speaking of summer, I am counting down the days until I jump on a plane and head back to East to spend the month of July with all of my favorite people. My family is spread out across the country but every summer we descend on my parent's house and pack a year's worth of memories into just one month. There are lazy summer days at the beach and virtually every night is spent on my parent's deck with what can only be described as obscene amounts of food and drinks. It's amazing to say the least and I already know that this grilled Shrimp Scampi Flatbread will be making multiple appearances as a delicious app and light dinner.
Now when it comes to making this flatbread, there are a few things that are really important. First, let's talk about the flatbread. You need to start with a really delicious base and the Flatout Spicy Italian Artisan Thin Crust Pizza is the perfect thing. The Italian spices add just the right amount of heat and with just 130 calories per flatbread, it keeps everything light and healthy. It's also nice and thin so you can really taste the ingredients on the flatbread, which is important. You don't want to just taste bread. And did I mention it's ready in just 6 minutes! Love it. We have been using them constantly lately to make pizzas and flatbreads. Let's just say we are obsessed. #flatoutlove
Once you have the right flatbread, the next thing to think about is the shrimp. I think it's worth it to splurge on larger shrimp, 15-20 count, for this recipe since the shrimp is the star and you want it to stand out in both taste and appearance. However, smaller shrimp will work, just marinate them for less time so the lemon flavor doesn't overpower everything else. Lastly, since this is shrimp scampi, don't be afraid to really go for it with the garlic. In my opinion there is never too much garlic.
