Tried the craw fish pizza at Eggtoberfest 2010. It was terrific and the crust was perfect ;) so I took a recipe card to try it at home. Contacted Steve because I was concerned about the amount of yeast to use and that I would be using shrimp. He gave me a bunch of pointers and I have to say one of the best pizzas I have ever eaten.
I added a few tomato slices to the mix
Added some basil I dried last year, shrimp that was sauteed for 30 seconds and cheese
Cooked at about 500 so I wouldn't over do the shrimp
Crust was not as brown as I would have preferred, but was crispy and had a wonderful flavor


  • Thats a awesome looking pizza - congrats

    Took me a while to get pizza crust down on the Egg. Great job on that!
  • Hey JL,

    Just going to bed. Did you just get home?

  • Pizza looks good, do you mind sharing the crust recipe? I'm still looking for a recipe I really like.

    Very nice looking pie
    I am going to try shrimp ;)

  • The crust recipe is in the eggtoberfest 2010 recipe file under craw fish pizza. First time I have ever used bread flour. Also added fresh rosemary and garlic powder to the the dough. tons of flavor

    nice work. looks great!
    context is important :)
  • I think my next egg pizza may be a shrimp pizza.
  • Wow those look great! I'm glad it worked out for you. We are just entering crawfish season down here in New Orleans, but from what I'm reading it's going to be a down year. Not enough rain and too much cold weather. We can usually get live crawfish for about $1.20 to $1.50 a pound in the peak of the season. Right now they are in the high $3s to low $4s. Not making any pizzas right now!

    Shrimp works just as well as you now know! What do you pay for a pound of shrimp in Kentucky? Down here it's usually under $5.00 a pound for jumbo.

    Again, looks great!

  • I got the shrimp on sale for $9.99 a lb :angry:. The recipe didn't say what to do with the fresh chopped rosemary, so I tossed it into the kitchen aid along with some garlic and the dough. Sure added flavor. Also the recipe calls for 6 tbls of eveoo, but only said to put 2 in the dough. Where does the rest of the eveoo go? Made 2 very large balls of dough, so I froze one and hopefully it will be good next week. :unsure:
  • Richard,

    I leave that extra olive oil out b/c the recipe is for focaccia bread and you use it at the end and then sprinkle Koser salt on top.

    I've even added fresh sage along with the rosemary into the flour and that adds another layer of flavor. It's my favorite pizza crust and trust me...we went thru some recipes before we found this one.

    Here is Emeril's recipe...
