Delectably sweet & savory Island flavored pizza. Although posted with a refrigerated pizza crust, feel free to make your own or use a Boboli Pizza crust. Just adjust cooking times for your choice.

- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- kosher salt
- black pepper, freshly ground
- 7 ounces pizza dough or 7 ounces a Boboli pizza crusts
- semolina flour, for dusting

- Sprinkle the pizza with the red pepper flakes adn top with the remaining cheese. Bake the pizza for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and slightly brown.

Very tasty pizza that was surprisingly quick to make if you take the eaasy way out as I did and use a prepared crust! I've never eaten mango and shrimps together but enjoy both so was curious how they'd be together: in a single word, YUMMY! Having zero tolerance for anything spicy, I omitted the red pepper flakes. Loved the red and yellow bell peppers with the shrimps and mango. I did add minced garlic - for me a must-be-included ingredient - rosemary and thyme (among my favourite herbs) and, for us, the blend of flavours worked wonderfully well. Thank you, breezermom, for a very different pizza that I'll certainly be making again. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
This was excellent, like a Caribbean version of a Hawaiian pizza. The family's only complaints on this were a) there wasn't enough, and b) I needed to chop the ingredients. Big slices of fruits and veggies make a beautiful pizza, but it's a little hard to eat. :) I loved the combination of flavors. I used my homemade Salsa Di Pomodoro for the sauce, fresh mozzarella slices, and a Boboli crust, as you recommend. Definitely a good choice. Now I see that I will have to make a stock of Boboli Pizza Crust Clone to keep in my freezer for next summer, when mangoes, peppers, and shrimp are all in season! Thank you very much for posting. Made for ZWT5, for the Groovy GastroGnomes.
Made this as part of the DM's 87th birthday tea, I used red, yellow and orange capsicum/bell peppers which I diced and pre-cooked prawns, otherwise made as stated and we all thoroughly enjoyed the combinations on the pizza, thank you breezermom, made for Rookie Recipe Tag game.
