Split and toast the English muffins. Set aside on a baking sheet with sides or in a casserole dish.
Place the olive oil and butter into a skillet and sauté the mushrooms, onions, garlic, chopped black olives and pimentos. When the onions are translucent stir in the cheddar cheese. Stir in a little water if the sauce is too stiff. Spread this sauce over the toasted muffins.
Arrange a good sprinkling of the chopped shrimp on each muffin. Top with the shredded mozzarella cheese. Place under your broiler for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and has started to brown.
Serve as individual pizzas, or quarter so you can serve hot appetizers. Enjoy a nice treat – and a happy holiday!
