2 medium poblano chiles (about 5 inches long)
6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
12 uncooked extra-large shrimp (about 1/2 lb), thawed if frozen, peeled, deveined, tail shells removed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 can (11 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated thin pizza crust
1/2 cup Mexican crema
4 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (16 oz)
1 can (15.25 oz) whole kernel sweet corn, drained
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
Set oven control to broil. Line cookie sheet with foil; place chiles on foil. Broil chiles 3 to 4 inches from heat about 5 minutes on each side or until skin blackens and blisters. Wrap blackened chiles in foil. Let stand 10 minutes. Turn off broiler; heat oven to 425°F. Move oven rack to middle position. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet. Place on paper towel-lined plate; reserve drippings in skillet. Add shrimp to drippings in skillet; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until shrimp just begin to turn pink. Place shrimp on paper towel-lined plate. Set aside.
Unroll dough onto cookie sheet. Starting at center, press dough into 15x10-inch rectangle. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until light golden brown.
Meanwhile, gently rub chiles with paper towel to remove as much skin as possible. Cut top from each chile; remove seeds. Cut chiles into 1/4 inch strips.
Spread crema over crust to within 1/2-inch of edges. Top with cheese, roasted chiles, corn, bacon and shrimp.
Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown and shrimp is cooked through. Garnish with cilantro leaves.
Chef’s Notes: To roast the poblano chiles over a gas burner, carefully roast them for about two minutes on each side, rotating with tongs, until chiles blacken and blister.
