Cajun Shrimp Pizza
- 16 ounces pizza dough, store-bought
- 8 ounces medium cleaned and shelled shrimp
- 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
- 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup sliced bell peppers, any color
- 1/2 cup sliced yellow onion
- 1/3 cup pizza sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Pre-bake your pizza dough if the instructions on the package say to do so.
In a bowl, mix together the shrimp, Cajun seasoning, and half of the paprika. Toss it all together until your shrimp is coated with the mixture. Keep the shrimp mixture chilled until you finish the rest of the instructions and are ready to bake the pizza.
Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the bell peppers and onion until they are soft and the onions become translucent.
Grease a pizza pan or a cookie sheet. Take the premade dough and shape it into a circle or a rectangle (whichever shape you prefer).
Put the pizza sauce in a small bowl, and stir in the rest of the spices, the smoked paprika and the cayenne pepper. This will give the sauce a bit more flavor! Spread the pizza sauce on to your pizza. Next, spread the sautéed peppers and onions over the sauce, and top the peppers and onions with the cheese. Finally, spread the shrimp evenly over the cheese.
Bake the pizza for about 15 minutes until the shrimp is cooked through and the cheese is bubbly and starting to get brown.
