Down where it’s better, this Popcorn Shrimp Pizza comes straight out a fairy tale, or should we say a fairy fin? Delicious panko breaded shrimp baked to a crispy delight. On a base of classic tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese these little shrimps deliver in a big way.
Not everyones a fan of seafood on a pizza, I hear that, especially heating it up in the work microwave, not cool guys. But forget work for a minute and let’s talk shrimp. Not only are these tasty little shrimp awesome but to lighten things up a bit added some fresh chopped parsley for another layer of flavour.
