Low FODMAP Shrimp Scampi Pizza

Are you ready for another low FODMAP recipe? I think you will really like this one!  This recipe is easy to adapt if you are going through the challenge phase….test your tolerance to wheat and use a wheat-based crust or use a clove a garlic with olive oil vs. the garlic infused oil.  Ironically, wheat and garlic are not major triggers for my belly.  Remember, the goal of the low FODMAP diet is not to be overly restrictive…its to learn what bothers you and only limit those triggers.

But…on to yummy recipes…shall we…

If you have not tried shrimp on pizza…you might just be missing out on something delicious.

This shrimp scampi pizza is so easy to whip up–and with suitable low FODMAP ingredients on hand…you will have one of the best meals of your life in under 30 minutes.

Grab the garlic infused oil, some fresh basil and Italian parsley along with some frozen deveined and de-shelled shrimp. Frozen shrimp often have the tail on– just use a knife to remove the tail.

I slightly roast the shrimp in the oven first. I find this works best–rather than topping the crust with the uncooked shrimp which requires a longer cooking time–and the crust gets too crispy.

I am loving the Ugly’s Bakery Hand Made GF Sourdough Pizza Crust. So chewy and like the real deal.  I find this gluten free, nut free, soy free and vegan pizza crust in the freezer section of the local grocery store (Market Basket).  If you can’t find this crust–2 Udi’s GF pizza crusts work too.

I cook pizza in the oven most of the time…but it is yummy cooked up on the grill too.
