Shrimp pizza is one of my favorite homemade pizzas. We make it a little more non-traditional by using an alternative pizza sauce. Our sauce for shrimp pizza is a traditional cocktail sauce, and instead of mozzarella, we use grated cheddar. Also, the shrimp is par cooked before topping the pizza. If put on the pizza raw, the shrimp juice that comes out during cooking makes the pizza soggy.

Getting the ratios right for your taste buds may take a little practice, but it’s worth it for the fresh factor. Also, there are many veggies that go well on shrimp pizza — fresh tomatoes, mushrooms, and summer squash or zucchini to name a few.
