Get ready!

  • 16 oz. pizza dough, pre-made
  • 5-6 roasted garlic cloves, mashed to a paste
  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • 1 cup goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup pecan pieces
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce (whole)
  • 3-4 thyme leaves
  • 1 cup cooked baby shrimp (no shell or tails)
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 – 2 tbsp. honey
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set baking sheet aside.

On a floured surface, roll out the pizza dough to a 1/4 inch thickness. Transfer to the baking dish and bake for about 6-8 minutes. It should be cooked but not browned.

Spread the garlic cloves that have been mashed over the surface of the dough and then add the shallot slices, cheese and pecans evenly on top. Using a teaspoon, drop dollops of cranberry sauce over the surface. Bake now for about 10 minutes until it is golden brown and bubbling.

Sprinkle the surface with the honey, oil, thyme leaves and baby shrimp. Slice and serve immediately on a pretty plate, glass of wine and a smile.
