Grilled Shrimp Bruschetta Pizza

April 26, 2017

This Grilled Shrimp Bruschetta Pizza is a perfect blend of fresh ingredients, seafood, and pizza. It’s a pizza lover’s dream that can be made in minutes!

Thank you to Hamilton Beach for providing me with an Indoor Searing Grill.  No other compensation has been received in exchange for this post. I am a Hamilton Beach brand ambassador, however all opinions stated within this post are 100% my own.

I have been counting down the weeks until my husband’s bowling league is out for the summer. We’re down to about four more weeks. I’m not just excited to have my hubby all to myself again on Friday night, but I’m excited to hang out in the backyard around our charcoal grill.  Friday night is our designated pizza night since it’s a quick and easy meal before my husband goes bowling. That doesn’t change much during the summer. Instead of delivery or making pizza in the oven, we cook our pizzas out on the grill.

Everything tastes better on the grill and the same goes for pizza!  So I was thrilled when Hamilton Beach sent me their Indoor Searing Grill.  I knew I was going to have fun with my new appliance! Especially since there are still a few more weeks until we get back to grilling pizzas outside. In the meantime, I’ve managed to grill a few pizzas with the Indoor Searing Grill!  

The moment I got the Indoor Searing Grill, I knew that I had to try to make a pizza on it.  I wasn’t expecting it to be this easy!  The best part?  I had a hot and airy pizza that was ready in just minutes!  I tested my pizza making skills on this grill with a plain, cheese pizza the first time around.  Then, I decided to step up my game with a pizza that seemed pretty fancy, but took minutes to make!

Since I love getting creative with our pizza toppings, I wanted to make a pizza with light, fresh flavors that would be perfect for summer entertaining.  During the summer, I love sitting with friends and family in the backyard and enjoying small bites of food over a glass of wine.  Shrimp is a summer favorite, along with bruschetta.  So I decided to put the two together on a truly delicious grilled pizza!

Think of this pizza as a giant bruschetta.  But instead of just grilled bread with a tomato and olive oil topping, I’ve added fresh onion, baby spinach, and large shrimp.  You could certainly use precooked shrimp for this pizza.  However, I wanted to see how shrimp would grill on the Indoor Searing Grill, so I cooked them first.

To make the shrimp, I simply preheated the Indoor Searing Grill to 350º.  I placed them evenly across the nonstick cooking plate and allowed them to cook through on each side.  I removed the shrimp from the heat and wiped down the grill plate while it was still hot.  Then, I got to work on my pizza.

I preheated the Indoor Searing Grill to 350º again and began to stretch my dough.  A note about working with store bought pizza dough: leave it out on the counter for about 20-30 minutes before cooking to let it rise. Then, go ahead and start stretching it.  Once my pizza dough was stretched, I brushed it on both sides with olive oil.  

It only took a few minutes for the bottom to start getting nice grill marks.  After flipping it, work quickly to get your toppings on.  You want the cheese to melt while avoiding to burn the bottom of your crust.  However, the Indoor Searing Grill kept the temperature consistent so I wasn’t too fearful about that happening as quickly as it might when we’re cooking outside.

The Indoor Searing Grill’s sleek design makes it compact enough to keep in the kitchen. It’s easy to use. Just plug it in and heat it up using its adjustable temperature setting that goes from 200º all the way up to a searing 450º. The nonstick grilling plate is removable and the drip tray slides out from underneath the grill for easy cleanup.

So far, I’ve used the Indoor Searing Grill to grill boneless chicken breasts, sear a pork loin, and even make a grilled cheese.  This has quickly become one of my favorite kitchen appliances to have on hand.  I can’t wait to experiment with other recipes using this grill!
