1 Cup prepared Alfredo Sauce
1 Bag pre-washed baby fresh spinach leaves (or 2 boxes frozen spinach, thawed in microwave and well drained).
1 Pound shelled, de-veined medium size shrimp, sliced down the center-butterfly cut.
200-400 grams Brie Cheese (1/8th to 1/4 wedge of brie), chopped in small pieces.
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tablespoons olive oil or butter
2 Tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 Fresh Cloves Garlic, minced or pressed

SHRIMP PREPARATION
In a large skillet sauté for 3-5 minutes on medium heat until shrimp is cooked through, stir ingredients below:

2 Tablespoons olive oil or butter
2 Fresh Cloves Garlic
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
All shrimp, butterfly cut

BUILD YOUR SPINACH, SHRIMP AND BRIE CHEESE PIZZA
1. Place 1/2 cup Alfredo Sauce on each pizza
2. Drizzle herbed butter with shrimp juice from saute pan
3. Next evenly spread fresh spinach, or well-drained thawed frozen packaged spinach
4. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste
5, Arrange shrimp evenly over pizza
6. Scatter Brie Cheese pieces through out the pizza round.

NOTE:  The brie will not be completely melted.
TIP:  Spinach must be dried, any added moisture from the spinach will make crust soggy. Grilled pizza will be crispy when spinach has no extra moisture.

GRILLING
Preheat your GrillGrates (5 to 8 minutes) on Low-Low/Med HEAT with Lid Down. For charcoal, preheat GrillGrates after the red hot peak, gray coals only. Lid Down. 

Place pizzas on your preheated GrillGrates, Grill pizzas on Low Heat with Lid Down, approximately 8 minutes, after 6 minutes, quarter turn with The GrateTool. For charcoal, grill after the red hot peak, gray coals only, approximately 8 minutes, quarter turn with The GrateTool after 6 minutes.

NOTE: Judge the initial sear marks after 4 minutes to get an indication of how hot you are cooking. If the sear marks are dark to black when you lift pizza to check bottom, you are cooking too hot, turn down the burners.
