Shrimp and Shallot Pizza with Rosemary

Sounds like a weird combo for a pizza, I know. But one day I was making a shrimp and shallot mixture for another dish and it dawned on me, this would make a great, PIZZA PIZZA. So WAHLAH (if that’s even how you spell that)! The shrimp and shallot pizza was born, at least in my house. If I check the internet for this pizza I will probably find 200 other people who had the same revelation so I’m not even going to bother. I just want to bask in my great big idea before the internet makes it feel small. lol

How did rosemary get on the pizza? Well, the rosemary I had in the fridge was on the verge of what I call “use it or you’ve wasted it”so I decided to try it on the pizza. Boy was I surprised!  It works, and really well I might add. Just don’t be too generous on the rosemary. According to my husband, “rosemary is strong and overpowering.” Usually I would fight him on that because I feel like I am the defender of all things food (my hands on my waist like I’m Captain America), but in this case he is right. If you use too much, you will miss out on the mild but savory taste of the shallots.  So in this case, a hint or sprinkle will do ya!

BUT I’m not the boss of you, so do what you want!
