Who says pizza has to be boring? This Southwest Shrimp, Bacon & Pineapple Pizza takes ordinary pizza and kicks it up a notch. Are you looking for a new after school snack for your kids? Pizza!

All you need is some fluffy Bays English Muffins, bacon, shrimp, pineapple, cheese and a few seasonings. Now you have a protein packed, nutritious meal that will make tweens, teens, husbands, foodies and seafood lovers happy any time of the day. Because Bays elevates any meal occasion!
You see, I have two teenage boys and they eat me out of house and home. So after school I am always scrambling to find something that will fill them up before work or sports. One of my favorite things to do is make breakfast for dinner and now I can use Bays English Muffins for more than just breakfast at home.
But, before I delve into the recipe, I just have to say that this week was the very first time I tried this brand of english muffin. All I can say is I am now a lifetime fan. Bays English Muffins are fresh, split easily, and toast up with a light crispiness.
First you need to cook up some bacon. I have found that using a cast iron skillet creates bacon with the perfect color and crispiness. Drain the fat and return it to the stove. Sprinkle some chili powder on the shrimp and cook it until pink. Meanwhile toast the Bay’s English Muffin until they are toasty around the edges. Place a piece of pepper jack cheese on top of the two halves. Carefully broil them for 1 minute and then arrange bacon, shrimp, and pineapple and sprinkle with a bit of cilantro.
This sandwich has a a little bit if a bite and will keep you full for hours. Serve it up with some tortilla chips and guacamole or slice up some bell peppers for a low carb option.
