Spicy Mediterranean Pizza

Julie Ann Keene


Arrabbiata is a spicy pasta sauce. If it isn't available, you can add red pepper flakes to a regular sauce (but it won't have the same depth of flavor). This is a Pizza Friday favorite in our house! We have even jokingly written poems about it!

Julie is right, the arrabbiata sauce really does bring a depth of flavor to this pizza. It's spicy, tangy, and delicious. All the topping pair well together and the shrimp brings a uniqueness to the pizza. Great homemade pizza recipe! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
