I’m super excited to share my new original Cajun Shrimp Pizza recipe that only has 3 Weight Watchers® points for each individual pizza! These little pizzas are made using Oroweat Sandwich Thin rolls and are packed with bold flavors.
As a busy mom I often find myself grabbing the wrong foods, that’s one of the reasons I love Weight Watchers Freestyle program with zero points. Weight Watchers makes it easier for me to eat healthier even with my busy lifestyle. I also don’t have to give up my favorite seafood (shrimp) which is zero points on the Weight Watchers Freestyle program and adding fruits and veggies to my diet which are also zero points, keep me full and provides the nutrients I need to keep up with my little boy.
When I can fit a girls day into my busy schedule, I love to serve my Cajun Shrimp Pizza topped with veggies for lunch. These individual pizzas are simple to make and goes perfectly with a side of fresh fruit or with any of the foods on the Weight Watchers Freestyle program with zero points.
To make the Cajun Shrimp Pizza head over to your local Walmart to buy the following ingredients: (Keep reading for the full recipe below.)
- Oroweat Sandwich Thins rolls any variety you like Whole Wheat, Honey Wheat, Flax & Fiber , or Multigrain which I used. All 3 points per roll! Isn’t that awesome?
- Fat Free Mozzarella Cheese 1/3 cup for each individual pizza comes out to 1 point … woohoo!
- 24 medium size shrimp – ( peeled & deveined) fresh or frozen but thawed … drum roll please ZERO points!!
- Garlic Clove – zero points
- Yellow Onion – zero points
- Green and Red Bell Pepper – zero points
- Curly Parsley – zero points
- 10 -12 Cherry Tomatoes – zero points
- Cajun Seasoning – zero points
- Canola Spray Oil – zero points
- Olive Oil 1 teaspoon – per individual pizza = 1 point per pizza.
After I eat my Cajun Shrimp Pizza, I like to have dessert. The Weight Watchers Ice Cream Novelties cure my sweet cravings. My favorite treat so far is the Giant Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream Bars with only 90 calories each and 4 points. I honestly have to hide these fudge bars from myself because they taste so delicious I want more than just one.
I also, like to make a creamy swiss roll-up for snack using Flatout Light Original Flatbread (2 points) with Laughing Cow creamy swiss (1 point) for a total of 3 points and pop a bag of Jolly Time Healthy pop popcorn (3 points per serving) to take on the go with me. Just take my bag of popcorn along with me and pack my flatbread creamy swiss roll-up in a plastic container and place in my small cooler.
I have so many great options with Weight Watchers Freestyle with zero points to eat better and have a healthier lifestyle, whether I am eating at home or on the go.
Cajun Shrimp Recipe

- 2- Oroweat Sandwich Thins (separate the bottom from the tops) any variety you like. Whole Wheat, Honey Wheat, Flax & Fiber , or Multigrain which I used. (total 4 individual pizzas)
- Fat Free Mozzarella Cheese 1/3 cup for each piece of sandwich thin rolls
- 24- medium size shrimp - thawed, peeled, & deveined ( 4-6 shrimp per individual pizza )
- 1 tbsp - Fresh Minced Garlic

- 2 tsp. - Olive Oil
- 1/2- Red Bell Pepper - sliced thin into 16 long pieces (divide and place 4 slices on each pizza)
- 1 tbsp diced fresh Curly Parsley
- 10 -12 Cherry Tomatoes cut in half and smashed (use potato masher)
- 1 tbsp Cajun Seasoning (I used Louisiana Cajun Seasoning)
- Canola Spray Oil
- cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
- optional diced parsley for garnishing
- Preheat oven on broil - low heat.
- Put shrimp in medium bowl and toss with cajun seasoning and parsely. Place in fridge until needed.
- Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Place tomatoes into a medium bowl and smash using a potato masher. Set aside until needed.
- Separate the bottoms and the tops from the sandwich thins and place upside down onto the cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Place minced garlic into a small bowl with 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Mix together well.
- Brush each sandwich thins with the garlic & olive oil mixture. Use a pastry brush. Set aside.
- Spray a pan with canola cooking spray.
- Remove the shrimp from the refrigerator. Cook in the pan on medium heat until they turn pink and the tails curl, about 3-4 minutes. Make sure to flip the shrimp over at least once during the cooking time. When cooked remove from heat.
- Grab the cookie sheet with the sandwich thins and place on a flat surface. Next, using a fork spread a little bit of the tomatoes onto each. Place the shrimp on top of the tomatoes, then the onions, bell peppers and cheese. Do this for each of the individual pizzas.
- Place the pizzas into the preheated oven on low broil until the cheese melts (3-5 minutes depending on your oven).
- Using oven mitts remove cookie sheet from the oven and let cool. Enjoy!
You can also use part-skim mozzarella cheese but, you will have to adjust your points.
