  • Prepare the Detroit pizza dough the day before and allow to proof overnight, in the Detroit pan, following the steps linked above.
  • Take the dough out of the fridge 4-6 hours before baking.
  • Preheat your kitchen oven to 550F.
  • Place the pan on a pizza steel/stone, or on the bottom of your oven, to par-bake the dough for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from oven. Carefully top with cheese (pan will be hot). Return to oven and bake for another 6-7 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and the edges look browned.
  • Remove from oven. Top with two large stripes of Creole sauce, followed by shrimp. Sprinkle on green onion, slice, and serve.
