Cajun Shrimp Pizza

What do you think? Will we ever exhaust the possibilities for pizza? I'm not sure. I'm just glad to have a lot of options. This Cajun Shrimp Pizza is one of the best. You can tell, just from seeing all the beautiful toppings chopped up.

And, three kinds of cheese!!! Combine them all on the best crust ever, and you will have a great dinner.

Start by seasoning the shrimp. Add as much Cajun seasoning as you think you will like, probably about 1-2 teaspoons.

Then toss the shrimp around to make sure it's all coated. Stretch out your pizza dough, and place it on a large sheet of parchment. Top the dough with the pizza sauce, then sprinkle on the mozzarella, parmesan and pepper jack.

Add the green onions,

then the red onions, the roasted red pepper slices,

and finally the shrimp.

If you'd like to, you can sprinkle the pizza with additional Cajun seasoning. Now transfer the pizza to a hot pizza stone and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and crust is golden. (If you need a tutorial about this, check out the Chicken, Spinach and Feta pizza step by step.)

Let the pizza rest a few minutes before you cut into slices and serve!

Cajun Shrimp Pizza

1 pound pizza dough
1/3 cup pizza sauce
1/2 lb. large cooked shrimp
Cajun seasoning, to taste (about 1-2 tsp.)
1 oz. grated Parmesan cheese
3 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
3 oz. shredded Pepper Jack cheese
1 roasted red pepper, sliced
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1/4 cup chopped green onions

Preheat the oven and a pizza stone at 475 for 30 minutes.

Place the shrimp in a small bowl and sprinkle with 1-2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning. Stir to be sure all the shrimps are coated.

Roll out the pizza dough and place on a large sheet of parchment paper. Top the crust with a thin layer of pizza sauce, the sprinkle on the mozzarella, Parmesan, and Pepper Jack cheeses. Top with roasted red pepper, red onion, and green onions. Top the pizza with the shrimp, and sprinkle on more Cajun seasoning if you like.

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.
