Delicious! We used a different brand of pizza dough mix than the one that was recommended. It came with tomato sauce which we used. The crust was thin but we like thin crust. So quick and easy to make. This is my new favorite kind of pizza. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The one thing that's really impt it to be sure to thaw out the frozen veg (onions, peppers, etc BEFORE you put them on the pizza and in the oven. If you put them on the pizza straight from the bag,the frozen ice-moisture will soak the pizza and make it very soggy.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love pizza, I love shrimp, and I love the taste of New Orleans. My husband was out of town, so I decided to experiment with something other than the routine pizza. To me, the different flavors did not seem to blend. It sure sounded like it would work, since they are all New Orleans flavors. I am pleased to see that others thought it was great. I am sorry Sandra, I love your show; you provide good recipes that is quick and less expensive than other recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The great thing about this is that you can play with the recipe. I used a wheat frozen dough and I used a can of roasted tomato garlic chunks. I used a low fat mozzarella. I accompanied the pizza with a salad with a low fat vinaigrette. We had pina colada for a drink dessert it was fabulous. Thank you for the recipe. When I looked for shrimp pizza else where I kept running into a cream cheese dip. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Why are people so mean to Sandra Lee? I thought this recipe was great and a nice change from ordinary pizza. Cajun seasoning and garlic add plenty of flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
