Hand tossed pizza crust smoothed over with a base of creamy Alfredo sauce, studded with creole seasoned shrimp, sautéed onions, and garlic, then topped off with generous handfuls of melted Colby Jack and Provolone cheeses, and finally sprinkled with crispy, crumbled pieces of bacon. How’s that for a gourmet pizza dinner? This garlic shrimp alfredo pizza delivers on all fronts, for any occasion.
Grocery shopping. I’m convinced you either love it or hate it.
It’s either a necessary, but shoot-me-now chore, or you relish the hunt for the best bargains each week and sticking to your list and get off on coming in below budget. I’m one of those who falls firmly into the love it category.
That being said, we make the big trek to Costco, followed by every store with a circular in a 5 mile radius, once a month and it takes pretty much all day.
And that’s exhausting, considering kids are dragging there heels after store # 1, whining the whole way, and begging for this that and the other.
We’re all tired and cranky by the end, and cooking dinner is the last thing I want to do at the end of that day. So, yes, on grocery day we order pizza for dinner. The irony, I know- it’s not lost on me either.
But sometimes the son who works at a local pizzeria decides to take pity on his poor, old Mom, and mix together and toss a fresh crust, and come up with a pizza that will blow our taste buds away, from scratch.
(Really he will jump at any excuse to show off his growing pie-slinging skills).
And that’s how we ended up not doing delivery, but some home made gourmet.
Mmmmmm…. garlic shrimp alfredo pizza. Say that five times fast. It’s a delicious tongue twister that’s as fun to eat as it is to say.

Garlic Shrimp Alfredo Pizza
- pizza dough homemade or store bought
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic mined
- ¼ onion finely chopped
- 1 lb small shrimp tossed with 1 tsp creole seasoning
- 1 tbsp fresh parsley finely chopped
- juice of ½ a lemon
- 6-7 tbsp of alfredo sauce
- 1 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
- 5-6 provolone slices sliced into thin strips
- 3 slices bacon cooked and chopped
- Spread dough onto pizza pan flattening and stretching it out to edges. Use a fork to liberally poke holes in it. Partially bake the crust for 7 minutes before adding topping. Or if using a pre add, store bought crust, follow the package directions before topping.
- Melt the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in the garlic and onion and saute together, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes.
- Stir in the seasoned shrimp and cook for about 3-4 more minutes.
- Turn off heat and stir in the lemon juice and parsley.
- Use the back of a spoon to spread the alfredo sauce out onto the prepared crust. Top it evenly with the shrimp mixture. Next, evenly distribute the provolone slices, shredded Colby Jack, and bacon.
- Bake the pizza at 450 degrees for 7-10 more minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting so the cheese doesn’t pull off.
