A new pizza

We had a new pizza dish for dinner tonight and we both loved it.  It was quick to fix and pretty light.  Here is what I did:

Shrimp and Creole Pizza

  • 1 pizza shell
  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 large or 2 small garlic cloves minced
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 14 1/2 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 TB Cajun seasoning
  • 3/4 lb shrimp, peeled, deveined and cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • dried parsley flakes

Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat.  Add canola oil.  Add onion, garlic and pepper and cook, stirring until veggies are soft (5 – 8  minutes).  Add tomatoes and Cajun seasoning and cook, stirring another 5 minutes.  Add shrimp and cook stirring for 3 – 5 minutes until shrimp are just turning pink.  Remove from heat.

Spread mixture over pizza crust and sprinkle with cheese.  Bake at 450 for about 6 minutes and top with parsley flakes.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
