Spicy Coconut Shrimp Pizza

Spicy Coconut Shrimp Pizza Recipe

Seafood on pizza isn’t a new phenomenon. At Pepe's in Connecticut, clam pizza has been a regional specialty for years. In the 1980s, fancy restaurants began jumping on the bandwagon, offering shrimp and seafood-topped pies that raised pizza from a kid’s party food to haute cuisine.

When I was slinging pizza at Figs in the 90s and early aughts, spicy shrimp pizza was one of our most popular offerings. Something about the spice and the juicy texture of shrimp on pizza proved irresistible. Well, the combo still works, so I’m going to “leak” this secret to you, with a few little twists of my own. I’ve created a spicy coconut coating for the shrimp, and combined it with flavorful leeks for a flavor that will blow you away.
