This is a great summertime pizza, because it is light and it can be served hot or cold.

  • Press the pizza dough onto a baking sheet, and brush with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the bell pepper and onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning, and stir in the canned shrimp; cook until the shrimp are heated through.

  • When the crust has baked, remove from the oven, and spread evenly with the spinach mixture. Spread the shrimp and vegetable mixture onto the pizza, and cut into pieces to serve.

I do not think this pizza is light. I didn't even used the entire amount of cream cheese mixture and found it quite heavy. It has a good flavor but in my opinion the garlic needs to be roasted first. It was way too strong. Also I would prefer the mixture to be heated up rather than just eaten cold with the hot onions peppers and shrimp on top. Overall a decent and different pizza but not perfect as written. Read More

This recipe sounds appetizing however the cream cheese Spinach mixture was too heavy and in my opinion wasn't a good fit for "pizza". Maybe it would taste better as a dip or something. Read More

I used Boboli premade crust and baked that crust at 425 for 10 minutes with the olive oil Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese. I then followed the recipe. I cut it in small pieces and served it at two parties and everyone asked for the recipe. Read More

I loved this recipe! I did not follow it exactly because I had shrimp and salmon which was already cooked and seaseoned (nor would I ever buy canned shrimp), but the spinach/garlic/parm/mayo combination was AWESOME! I added some mozzarella cheese to that mixture, but only a handful, I cooked the pizza with the shrimp and salmon on top, and sprinkled a little more mozzarella on too, because it was weird to me, having a pizza with no cheese in top. The spinach-cream cheese-parm-garlic-mayo mixture was a lot, enough for my two pizzas (which I bake in cast iron skillets because its more like PizzaHut pan pizza). Read More

Really enjoyed this recipe! The second time I made it I only used about half as much of the cream cheese mix as the reipe called for and added some shredded Monterey jack to the top before baking the whole thing for 15 min. The flavors come together perfectly and the Italian herbs make the kitchen smell like heaven. This is a new addictive favorite! Read More

Very yummy. I used a generous amount of Seven Seas salad dressing on the crust for extra flavor. I also used an already made pie crust and because I like typically like my pizza hot I layered everything then cooked the pizza. If I had to do it over again I would cook the crust first then layer and place in the oven again to give the crust more crunch.However I did have did eat the pizza cold for lunch leftovers at work and it was still yummy.

As listed it's a 3 or 4. Like other reviewers said use this amount of mixture for 2 pizzas or cut it in half. Next time I will definitely cook the cream cheese mixture with my thin crust pizza and top with a sprinkle of mozzarella and that will be fantastic. Still tasted good as written but it tastes like an uncooked pizza which is a little odd. Read More

It was so delicious! There was way too much cream cheese mixture leftover and I'd say I went heavy with what I did use. I used 3 naan bread as crusts but still brushed them with olive oil, sprinkled with Italian and baked them for 10 min. I also used frozen uncooked shrimp instead of canned and I cooked them with the onion & red pepper. I thought this would be too much Italian seasoning at first, but it was great! These are ingredients I always tend to have on hand, so thank you for a new regular menu item. Read More

I didn't have frozen spinach so I used about 4oz fresh chopped spinach and a pinch of hot pepper flakes in the cream cheese mayo mixture. I used a Boboli crust didn't pre-heat it just spread the cream cheese mixture on it. Followed the directions for the peppers and onion mixture. I then spread it on top of the cream cheese mixture. I added medium pre-cooked shrimp. Sprinkled Italian shredded cheese blend on top then cooked the pizza for 10 minutes at 400. I let it set for about 5 minutes before slicing. My husband and I really liked it. My husband likes heat so he topped his with green salsa. We didn't use all the spread mixture so I saved the remainder for a heated chip or cracker dip lol!
