  1. On the stove top, cook the bacon in a sauté pan over medium heat until crisp (6-8 minutes). Drain well.
  2. Build a fire in your grill. When the coals are all ignited, the flames have died down, and the temperature is medium (see Gauging the temperature), you're ready to cook.
  3. Combine the shrimp, bacon, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, thyme, and salt and pepper in a bowl and mix until the shrimp and bacon are evenly coated.
  4. Brush the bread rounds on both sides with the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil, then place them on the grill directly over the coals and cook until nicely toasted and brown on one side (about 4 minutes). Flip the bread over and top each round with some of the shrimp mixture, then scatter the cheese on top. Invert a foil pan over the pizzas, and continue to cook until the shrimp are just cooked through and the cheese is starting to melt(3-4 minutes more).
  5. Cut the pizzas into wedges with a large, sharp knife. Arrange on a platter, and serve.
