Servings 2 8-inch pizzas



  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 ¼ cup water lukewarm
  • 2 ½ tbsp olive oil


  • cup arrabbiata sauce
  • 1 pound large shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese grated
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice from ½ a lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Red pepper flakes for topping


  • In the bowl of a food processor combine the flour, yeast, and salt and process with 3 or 4 pulses. With the motor running slowly add the water and olive oil. Continue processing until the dough forms a ball, about 1 minute, then process for 1 minute more.
  • Grease the inside of a large bowl with olive oil and place the dough in the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let the dough rise for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Like a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Divide the dough in half and roll out each section into 8-inch rounds. Place pizza bases on prepared baking sheet.
  • Spread ⅓ cup arrabbiata sauce over each pizza base.
  • In a mixing bowl, toss shrimp with olive oil until well coated. Divide the shrimp in half and arrange on pizza base. Sprinkle ½ cup of mozzarella cheese on each pizza.
  • Bake pizzas for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling.
  • Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes.
  • While pizzas are cooling, toss arugula with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  • Top each pizza with arugula. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and enjoy!
