Tangy and Spicy Tiger Prawn Pizza

Tiger prawn pizzaThough generally I prefer to make spicy prawn curries and the crisp fried form of prawn, but I just can't resist adding them in a pizza topping. How about a tiger prawn topping for your next pizza recipe? Let's make one flavored with tangy and spicy seasoning ingredients with a juicy layer of prawns. If tiger prawns are not available, you can use a local variety too. One can also add squid or fish eggs in the topping. Keep the pizza base slightly thick to get the best results. Feel free to sprinkle dried herbs or chili flakes on top of the piping hot baked pizza. If you love a more colorful topping, add bell peppers or broccoli in it. So, fire up your oven and get ready to make this unique pizza preparation.
