Here’s the second recipe using some terrific products from Barhyte “Saucy Mama.” I created this recipe as part of a food blogger recipe contest. I needed to make a recipe that was a crowd pleaser, easy to make and delicious and I hope this pizza fills that bill.

and here’s today’s yummy and spicy recipe~
Spicy Chipotle Shrimp Party Pizza
1 1/4 cups Saucy Mama Lime Chipotle Marinade, divided
10-12 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 oz softened cream cheese
1-1 pound homemade or store bought pizza dough
Cornmeal for dusting peel
1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
2 scallions thinly sliced, white and light green part only
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/2 fresh avocado, sliced
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
Salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 475 degrees F. Move oven rack to the bottom third of the oven and place a pizza stone or overturned large baking sheet on the rack.
Combine 1 cup Saucy Mama Lime Chipotle Marinade and shrimp in a small bowl and set aside.
In small bowl, mix together remaining 1/4 cup Saucy Mama Lime Chipotle Marinade and cream cheese and stir until smooth (add a few more tablespoon marinade if you like your pizza extra spicy)
Stretch the dough on a pizza peel or the back side of a baking sheet that has been well dusted with cornmeal. Spread cream cheese mixture on the dough, leaving 1” dough uncovered to form the crust. Layer on sliced pepper and chopped scallions and one cup of the cheese. Slide pizza into the oven on the hot stone and bake for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, add marinated shrimp the pizza, gently tapping off any excess marinade before placing the shrimp on the partially cooked pizza. Sprinkle on remaining cheese and continue to bake for an additional 8 to 10 minutes until crust is golden brown and shrimp is cooked through.
When cooked, remove pizza from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Add sliced avocado and sprinkle on chopped cilantro. Season with salt and pepper to taste and slice into wedges or squares to feed your guests.
