Cajun Shrimp Pizza


Pizza dough

Olive oil, for brushing

1/3 cup pizza sauce

½ lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

2 tsp. olive oil

Cajun seasoning, to taste

1 oz. grated Romano cheese

2-3 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese

1 small red bell pepper, roasted, peeled and chopped

¼ cup red onion, chopped

¼ cup chopped green onions


Preheat the oven and a pizza stone at 500˚ F for at least 30 minutes.  Roll out the pizza dough into a 12-14 inch round.  Lightly brush the surface of the dough with olive oil.  Top with a thin layer of pizza sauce leaving a clear perimeter around the edge for the crust.

Combine the shrimp, olive oil and Cajun seasoning in a bowl and toss until the shrimp are well coated with the seasoning.  Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat.  Place the shrimp in the pan in a single layer and cook briefly, turning once, just until the shrimp are just opaque.  Remove from the heat and transfer the shrimp to a plate to cool slightly.

Meanwhile, sprinkle the Romano and mozzarella cheeses evenly over the pizza dough.  Top with roasted red pepper, red onion, and green onions.  Evenly distribute the cooked shrimp over the pizza.  Sprinkle the pizza with additional Cajun seasoning, if desired.  

Transfer the pizza to the preheated pizza stone and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the crust is lightly browned, about 10-12 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before slicing and serving.
