Shrimp and Bacon Pizza

Shrimp and bacon sounds pretty darn indulgent doesn't it?  Top it on a pizza and you've got yourself a serious upgrade to your usual tomato sauce and cheese pie.

Adapted from Cook's Country Magazine

8 oz shrimp, peeled, deveined, patted dry, and chopped into bite-sized pieces
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 pizza dough
1 1/2 cups mozzarella, shredded
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper
2 tbsp oil

1. Preheat oven to 500.  In a small bowl mix shrimp, bacon, garlic, and oil.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Spread evenly atop prepared pizza dough.  Top with shredded mozzarella cheese.
2. Cook until crust has browned and shrimp is cooked through, about 15 minutes.

This pizza was really quite exquisite and a definite welcome change from your usual pizza toppings.
