Good. It was like having a Mediterranean dish. A little spicy. I added tomatoes just under the cheese and it was a nice addition (it just looked too pretty in the picture not to add). All the flavors blended really well together.
i had made this once before but it was rather too heavy on the cheese for our liking so i amended it with spectacular results! I increased the amount of sauce by double, i cooked the shrimp in chilli oil, and halved the amount of mozzarella and quartered the amount of feta leaving the parmesan at recipe quantity. when it had cooked i covered it with chopped fresh coriander and drizzled it with chilli oil. a pizza to die for - this was my dear husbands comment!
This was simply DEEEEEE-LISH, evelyn! What a great pizza. I had some spaghetti sauce in the freezer I pulled out and used. I bought cooked shrimp from the fish store and heated them in chili oil with garlic, onions, and mushrooms. I put everything on a thin crust pizza crust and put on my stone on the grill. All DH and DS could say was MMM-MM GOOD!
