Cajun Pizza~4 points

Recommended Posts

Makes 8 servings


Pizza crust (I used Pillsbury Pizza crust)

2 tsp olive oil

3/4 cup diced onions

1/2 cup diced green bell pepper

1/2 cup coarsely chopped celery

2 garlic cloves, minced

3/4 cup canned Spanish-style tomato sauce (I used Italian flavored sauce)

1 small bay leaf

1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves

1/4 tsp dried thyme leaves

Pinch ground red pepper

32 medium shrimp (about 1 pound), peeled and deveined

3 ounces shredded low-fat mozzerella


Preheat overn to 465 F.

Prepare pizza dough. Roll dough into a 12"circle; transfer to 12" pizza pan, pressing to form a stand-up rim. Bake 12 minutes. Remove crust from oven; leave oven on.


In medium nonstick skillet, heat oil; add onions, bell pepper, celery and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, 5 minutes, until vegetables are softened. Add tomato sauce, bay leaf, oregano, thyme, ground red pepper and 1/4 cup water; bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes, until mixture is thickened.


Remove and discard bay leaf from tomato sauce mixture. Spread tomato sauce mixture over baked crust to within 1/2" of rim; top evenly with shrimp and cheese. Bake 5 minutes, until shrimp turn pink and cheese is melted. Cut into 8 equal wedges.
