  • 1/2 tsp Saf Instant Yeast
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 4 oz Mozzarella fresh or an assortment of melting Mexican cheeses

  • 1 cup tomatoes peeled, seeded, diced
  • 8 cloves garlic caramelized

for dough

  • Dissolve salt and honey in water. Combine all ingredients and make a slightly sticky, soft, and supple dough. Divide the dough into 2 pieces. Form each into a ball, brush it with some olive oil, and place inside its own zipped freezer bag. Keep for them 15-30 minutes in room temperature, then put in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. Remove the balls from the refrigerator 2 hours prior to making pizza.

for baking

  • Place baking stone or steel on the rack and preheat oven to 450F. Peel and clean shrimp. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil, season shrimp with salt and pepper, and cook them on one side. Transfer them to a plate to stop cooking. Prepare cheese, olives, tomatoes. Wash and pat dry arugula. Divide all ingredients for two pizzas.
  • Make one pizza at a time. Shape half of the dough on the counter and transfer to the peel dusted with semolina. Brush extra virgin olive oil to cover the surface of the dough lightly.
  • Spread diced tomatoes, olives, and caramelised garlic evenly. Top with grated cheese or pieces of mozzarella. Arrange shrimp, uncooked side up. Place some more mozzarella on top.
  • Bake on the hot pizza stone for ~4 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh arugula, slice and serve.
