This pizza consists of all the incredible flavors of Cajun country. We thought about the different flavors that we love from Cajun country and decide to create “The Bayou Babes Cajun Pizza”. From the sweetness of the caramelized onions to the savory flavors of the crawfish and andouille sausage simply makes this pizza “Sweet and Savory”.


3 tablespoons butter, divided
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 large onions, cut in half and sliced thin
Salt and pepper to taste
¾ pound Andouille sausage, removed from casing and chopped
8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, sliced
1 ½ cups Arugula
1 medium eggplant, peeled and cubed
3 chicken bouillon cubes
1 tablespoon butter
5 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup flour
¾ cup heavy cream, room temperature
12 ounces Crawfish tails, drained and chopped
Cajun seasoning, to taste
2 French bread loaves, cut in half and cut diagonally
2 cups Gruyere cheese, grated
2 cup fresh mozzarella, grated

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large heavy bottom skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter and olive oil over medium high heat. Add the onions, salt and pepper and stir to coat onions with butter and olive oil. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium to medium low and continue cooking for an additional 30 minutes or until onions have caramelized. Remove onions from pot. Add sausage and mushrooms to the pot and sauté for 10 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender. Stir in arugula and turn heat off. Meanwhile, boil eggplant in 3 cups water and bouillon cubes for 10 minutes or until tender, drain and return to pot. Add remaining tablespoon of butter and garlic and cook over medium heat until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add flour and stir until flour is incorporated with eggplant. Slowly stir in heavy cream. Season crawfish tails with Cajun seasoning. Place the French bread on a large baking sheet and top with eggplant sauce and gruyere cheese. Add onions and the mushroom and sausage mixture to pizza crust (bread). Top with crawfish and mozzarella cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bread is crisp and cheese is melted.
