This recipe was entered in The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook contest, a compilation of the world’s best food blogs which was published in Fall 2010.


Pizza dough, enough for a large pizza
3/4 cup ranch dressing, divided
1/2 teaspoon dill (dried)
6 ounces frozen cooked salad shrimp, thawed
1 clove garlic, minced
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (I used turkey bacon)


Heat oven to 350°F.
Fit dough onto a pizza pan sprayed with cooking oil and bake for 7 minutes.
While it’s baking, stir the dill into the dressing.
Remove the crust and set oven temperature to 450 degrees.
Spread ½ cup dressing over the crust, then sprinkle the mozzarella over it.
No need to wait until the oven has preheated, just pop it in for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
While it’s baking, mix the shrimp with olive oil and garlic until coated.
Remove pizza from oven & top evenly with shrimp, bacon and tomato, then drizzle the remaining dressing over everything.
Return to oven; bake an additional 5-7 minutes or until shrimp is thoroughly heated.

great recipe


I was scrolling through my blog and came to realize out of the last 12 postings, only two recipes have been for non-sweets. Sweets are my forte, but I figured a dinner recipe was long over-due, and have I got a doozy for you!

A couple MySpace friends inspired this one. Through MySpace, I’m connected to a great network of women who love to cook and are so supportive and fun. Kim, the one responsible for hooking me up with most of my foodie friends, posted a recipe for Chicken Bacon Ranch pizza yesterday that had me drooling over my keyboard. I’d been wanting to make a pizza that my friend Suzie posted on her blog that had shrimp on it, so I decided to meld the two recipes into one. So here it is, the final masterpiece. And it would be just as good with chicken, which I plan to make next.


1.0 large 14" pizza, or serves 4-6
