Jeff and I have made a LOT of different grilled pizzas, and I have to say that this is one of my favorites! Pair this with a lovely glass of Sauvignon Blanc wine…

Make the pizza crust dough according to the instructions in the link above. While dough is resting, start preparing the toppings and melting the lemons.

Toppings:

1/3 cup Pomodori Foods Gourmet Scampi Sauce (or homemade scampi sauce)

1/2 cup marinated artichoke hearts, drained well

2 Tablespoons fresh lemon thyme leaves

3 Tablespoons fresh basil leaves

1/2 lb. cooked shrimp (peeled, deveined and tails removed)

1/2 cup fresh Mozzarella cheese cut into small cubes

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

2 large cloves sauteed or oven roasted garlic

2 Tablespoons capers, drained well (optional)

1 large melted lemon (recipe below)

1 large lemon, unpeeled and sliced thin (ends removed and discarded)

1/2 cup chicken broth

2 Tablespoons olive oil

Heat the chicken broth and olive oil in a skillet. Once the sauce begins to boil, reduce heat to a gentle simmer. Place lemon slices into the sauce in the skillet. Cover and allow to simmer for 30 to 45 minutes, or until lemons are very tender and soft.
