Grilled Shrimp Pizza

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

Having never made a pizza on the grill before, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. This is a really tasty pizza! The salsa verde (GREEN salsa) and queso fresco cheese are a MUST, in my opinion, to the success of this pizza.

Used my homemade salsa verde and this turned out so good. Was quick to cook on the Kamado Joe.

A very nice easy recipe.
I did use Pillsbury, and all of the other ingredients as listed.
I did make 2 small changes, but nothing that really changed the overall taste. I just like a bit more seasoning.

I brushed the pizza dough with olive oil, s/p and a little garlic. Not too much
Also, I brushed the shrimp with olive oil, s/p and a touch of chili powder for a bit more flavor.

Another option is I served a lime wedge and squeezed a bit over the top which was quite good. It went great with the shrimp and cilantro

The pizza cooked excellent. I grill pizzas often and love how they come out.
This was a very nice recipe with the salsa verde and queso. A wonderful flavor.

We made this last week as a "change of pace" type dinner. The flavor was good - the pizza tasted like something we'd get when eating out. It was pretty easy and the process went relatively quickly. Next time, I'll try to find a thicker salsa verde (the one I picked up was a bit runny but still worked). One problem we had was that after the toppings were on, our grill seemed to be a little on the hot side and was browning the bottom too quickly, so we ended up putting it in the oven to finish melting the cheese and avoid blackening a significant portion of the pizza. My husband in particular was very excited to finally try making a pizza on the grill (he's been wanting to do one for awhile now). Thanks for the idea...we'll be using this one again in the future!
