Hey everyone! Winter is coming and so is Christmas! I’ve had such a busy year with nonstop activities which unfortunately derailed me from blogging my recipes and I apologize. I should be back on track really soon since things are starting to calm down a little bit, but in the meantime, let’s talk about this pizza!
For starters, let’s just say this didn’t last over 24 hours. I used the left over pizza dough from this pizza recipe I made a couple months ago and I was actually impressed with how well it preserved. If anything, the aging of the dough made the pizza taste a lot better.
This recipe is very easy to make, well actually it’s easier to put together when the pizza dough is already made, which takes a long time so….Good luck lol. Alternatively, you could try my cauliflower crust recipe if you would prefer an easier and paleo friendly crust recipe.
Recipe: yields 4 servings
Half of my homemade pizza dough
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup organic tomato sauce (smooth)
½ pound peeled shrimp
¼ cup chopped red onions
1 tsp crushed garlic
1 sliced jalapeno pepper
A handful of grape tomatoes (sliced)
½ tsp hot sauce (I used sriracha)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (or cheddar)
Cilantro leaves (optional, for topping)
Preheat oven to 450°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Season shrimp with Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper and set aside. In small mixing bowl, combine tomato sauce, hot sauce, and garlic; set aside. Press dough into a 12-inch circle on a baking sheet with floured fingers (it may not cover all the edges unless you make a new batch of pizza dough).
Spread sauce onto dough evenly, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with cheese, peppers, onions, and shrimp.
Bake in preheated oven 12 to 17 minutes or until crust is golden brown. When ready, top with cilantro leaves and serve
