Pesto Shrimp Flatbread

This easy pesto shrimp flatbread pizza will have you jumping for joy, knowing that dinner is ready in just 10 minutes (or less)! I have to admit that sometimes dinner has to be a more of an assembly instead of cooking event since I’m constantly running around from my job to the gym after working 10+ hours. Sometimes there’s just no time to make a full meal! That does not mean that I go through the drive-through or eat mediocre food.

pesto shrimp flatbread pizza is veggie packed

Shrimp cooks up in just five minutes and the flatbread just has to toast in the oven before topping it with pesto and shrimp. I make my own pesto at home. Homemade pesto is so easy to make. You literally just put all the ingredients in the food processor and turn it on. It’s ready in two minutes flat, so don’t let that intimidate you!

The next time you feel tempted to get takeout, make this shrimp pesto flatbread pizza instead! Shrimp is one of my go to summer proteins. It cooks up in just minutes, and it’s always a hit at parties. For cookouts or nights the grill is already on, I like to make grilled shrimp, but for weeknights, I find it’s easier to make shrimp on the stove.

When I first started eating seafood after being vegetarian for many years, shrimp was one of the few seafood dishes I was able to master without too much difficulty. Shrimp pretty much let you know when they’re done; they curl up all cute they get nice and pink. And once they’re done they’re done (unlike some other pesky fish like salmon that looks done on the outside and it’s raw in the inside). So this recipe is perfect for beginners as well!

pesto shrimp flatbread pizza with tomatoes

I used my spinach basil pesto in this recipe. You can easily used store bought pesto as well, I just love using this recipe since it adds another veggie to the dish and still tastes just like pesto! I chose to make this pizza dairy free however, it would also be great with shredded Parmesan or smoked Gouda.

I simply top the flatbread with spinach basil pesto, chopped shrimp, chopped artichoke hearts, and sliced tomatoes. For this recipe I use St. Joseph’s Lavash Flatbread, but you could always use Udi’s gluten free tortillas if you need a gluten free option.

Your 10 minute meal sounds awesome! I would sub the pepperoni but you can't go wrong with hummus and cheese :)
