BBQ Shrimp Pizza with Shaved Brussel Sprouts

BBQ Shrimp Pizza with Shaved Brussels Sprouts - by customer Mark D

Pizza is easily made with Trader Joe's Herb Pizza Dough. In just 1 hour, I have amazed my friends with this delicious crispy thin pizza. If you have a Pizza Stone, in the oven or on the grill makes it easy and crisp. Don't forget, mascarpone cheese on the bottom after lightly oil brushed pizza gets it creamy; just ask Mozza! Apple Smoked Bacon and pan roasted shaved Brussels sprouts makes it yummy with the shrimp. Trader Joe's package makes two individual pizzas. Using a Pizza Peel is best for transition of pizzas.


  • 1 Herbed Pizza Dough Trader Joe's
  • 8 Large shrimp, shelled and deveined, diced in chunks
  • 1-2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 6-8 medium Brussels sprouts, sliced thin
  • 2 strips of Apple Smoked Bacon, cooked and diced
  • 3 Tbsp mascarpone cheese
  • 6 oz-8 oz Quarto Cheese (Trader Joe's)
  • Olive oil to brush and cook
  • Ground corn meal
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Sauce Goddess Sweet Heat Spice

  1. For the dough: follow the dough instructions, about 1/2 hour resting from fridge before splitting into 2 pizzas.
  2. Meanwhile, cook garlic in 4 TBS olive oil over medium high heat for 30 seconds.
  3. Add shaved Brussels sprouts.
  4. Reduce heat to medium, and lightly caramelize, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat.
  6. Cook the bacon in another pan or on grill to crispy, but not too brown.
  7. Heat the oven or grill to 450 degrees.
  8. Roll out dough or double-fist shape your pizza.
  9. Transfer to a cornmeal crusted pizza peel.
  10. Note: I prefer to add ground corn meal (even using a rolling pin to grind slightly more) to the bottom of the work surface or pizza peel. I build my pizza on the pizza peel for easy transition.
  11. Brush lightly to edges.
  12. Add dollops of mascarpone and spread with the back of a spoon gently spreading to cover the entire pizza.
  13. Add the quarto cheese evenly.
  14. Add the Brussels sprouts, bacon and shrimp chunks.
  15. Lightly salt if preferred. Add ground pepper if preferred.
  16. And finally add 2-4 TBS of Sweet Heat for desired depth of flavor!
  17. Slide the pizza onto the stone.
  18. Cook pizza until crisp bubbling, brown edges, check the bottom by using a metal spatula.
  19. Remove with cleaned pizza peel. Rest 3-5 min before making slices.
