  1. FOR REMOULADE: Mix all ingredients together until smooth. OPTIONAL: Use a food processor for an ultra smooth remoulade. Refridgerate extra remoulade sauce for other recipes.
  2. FOR CAJUN BREADED SHRIMP: In a small bowl, drizzle the shrimp with 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil then add the rest of the ingredients. Stir until the shrimp has a thick breading. If the mixture is too dry, add more olive oil. If too wet, add more flour. The shrimp should not be sticky.
  3. FOR PIZZA: Preheat the oven to 425 F. Prepare the remoulade according to the instructions above and set aside. Next, prepare the breaded shrimp according to the instructions above and then set aside.
  4. Dust a flat surface with flour and roll out the pizza dough to a half inch thick. Sprinkle corn meal onto a pizza paddle and transfer the dough to the paddle.
  5. Brush the dough edge to edge with the melted butter. Then spread the remoulade sauce over the dough, leaving a quarter inch crust around the edges.
  6. Arrange the shrimp onto the pizza. Top with sliced zucchini, red onion, sweet onion, capers, mozzarella slices and parmesan cheese, as desired.
  7. Bake at 425 F for 15-20 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the shrimp are cooked through. Give the pizza a few dashes of Louisiana hot sauce and fresh dill for garnish. Serve with Greek yogurt for dipping or your choice of sides. Enjoy!
