Mexican-Style Shrimp Pizza

Makes: 2 servings
Serving size: 1 tortilla pizza
Mexican-Style Shrimp Pizza
  • 2 8  inches  flour tortillas
  • 1  teaspoon  olive oil
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1  cup  thin, bite-size red and/or yellow sweet pepper strips
  • 1/3  cup  thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/2  of a medium fresh jalapeno chile pepper, seeded and thinly sliced* (optional)
  • 1  tablespoon  water
  • 2 - 3  tablespoons  purchased green salsa
  • 4  ounces  peeled and deveined cooked medium shrimp
  • 1/3  cup  shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1  tablespoon  snipped fresh cilantro
  •  Freshly ground black pepper (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Brush both sides of each tortilla with oil; place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake about 10 minutes or until crisp, turning once.

2. Meanwhile, coat an unheated medium nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat skillet over medium heat. Add sweet pepper, green onion, and, if desired, chile pepper. Cook about 5 minutes or until nearly crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Add the water; cover and cook for 2 minutes more. Spread each tortilla with about 1 tablespoon of the green salsa. Top with cooked vegetable mixture and shrimp. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake about 3 minutes or until cheese is melted and shrimp is heated through. Sprinkle with cilantro and, if desired, freshly ground black pepper.

From the Test Kitchen*Test Kitchen Tip:
  • Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
