Mediterranean Shrimp Pizza

I have been shopping at Smart & Final for as long as I can remember, so when I was asked to create a recipe using products from their La Romanella line – I was totally game!!

For those who have not had the pleasure of shopping at a Smart & Final, let me share with you why I love them. :) They are a small warehouse store that carries quality food and supplies – no membership required and the prices are AMAZING! I have never been anything but satisfied with my purchases from Smart & Final, from their produce to their wonderful selection of foodservice items.

La Romanella is Smart & Final’s line of food products that are inspired by the cuisine of the Mediterranean. Yum! To help get me started with the creation of a recipe, I was sent the most amazing gift basket!  My gift basket included pasta, pasta sauces, olive oil, marinated artichoke hearts, grated parmesan cheese & more! I wish I would have taken a picture of it, but I was too busy ripping it open like a kid opening presents on Christmas... I was ready to get cooking so I set off to Smart & Final to see what other La Romanells products were available. I was like a kid in a candy store and ended up buying enough supplies for a few Mediterranean dishes. ;)

Here is everything that came from Smart & Final for my Mediterranean Shrimp Pizza: (I already had a red onion and the fixin’s for a pizza crust)

Mediterranean Shrimp Pizza

1 cup cooked small shrimp
1 cup La Romanella Tomato Strips with Basil
pizza dough - we made our own, but a pre-made crust would work great too
½ cup La Romanella Original Basil Pesto
2 cups shredded cheese, pizza blend
1 cup La Romanella Marinated Artichoke Hearts, sliced in half lengthwise
1/3 cup red onion, diced
1/4 cup La Romanella Grated Parmesan Cheese

1. Combine shrimp and tomatoes – set aside
2. Spread pesto over pizza crust, we used a spatula and it worked great!
3. Top pizza evenly with cheese
4. Add toppings to pizza; artichoke hearts, red onions and shrimp-tomato mix
5. Follow directions to your crust, baking until golden brown on edges and the cheese is a bit bubbly
6. Let cool, serve with grated parmesan cheese and Enjoy!

The pizza came out great. I am beyond impressed with the quality of products offered in the La Romanella line. Each product is full of flavor and tastes so fresh! Next time I am wanting to cook anything Mediterranean, I will be shopping at Smart & Final for their La Romanella products. I also purchased Italian Style Meatballs, Pizza Sauce, Fired Roasted Whole Red Peppers and Pepperoni - all La Romanella and to be cooked into wonderful dishes very, very soon. ;)

If you live in California, Nevada or Arizona check out Smart & Final’s store locater to find your nearest location. If you can make it in to your nearest store by October 18th and buy a bottle of Redwood Creek Wine ($4.99) you will receive one 16 oz. La Romanella Pasta for free. Yes, for free!

As part of the La Romanella promotion, Smart & Final is giving one winner a trip to Sonoma for wine tasting! Click here or on the picture below to get to their Facebook page to enter the contest. (The winner must live within 20 miles of a Smart & Final) Good luck!

I love shrimp, so of course I MUST MAKE THIS. Your pictures are very crisp and colorful, and I've got to find the La Romanella products here in the Washington D.C. areas.

Kudos for a delicious looking post!
