Valentines Day is just around the corner, and of course, romantic recipes are all over the internet. Shrimp Scampi pops up a lot. So that got me to thinking…..I know dangerous right!!

Tim and I are not real big on large romantic gestures but we do enjoy a nice meal, and we LOVE PIZZA!!!!!! A combination of two yummy things, how could you go wrong. Let’s just say you can’t.

We added it, and I don’t wanna brag or anything, but it was a stroke of genius. Shrimp is the star of the show, but the pasta was hardly second fiddle. I think they were co-stars.
Juicy, succulent shrimp, with white wine, garlic, shallot, butter sauce, tossed with angel hair pasta, super yummy. But put all of that on a crispy pizza crust…..delicious!!!
