One of my favorite restaurants in my hometown of Lafayette, LA is Deano’s Pizza. Surprising that I would choose a pizza joint as one of my favorites since there are so many amazing Cajun restaurants in the area, right? But, Deano’s does hit my favorites list and every time I visit Lafayette, I always look forward to enjoying their pizza. And the Blackened Shrimp Pizza is hands down one of my favorites.
What is so special about this place, you ask? The way they incorporate Cajun cuisine into their specialty pizzas is truly unique. Since moving to Dallas, I have not been able to find a pizza joint that incorporates shrimp, crawfish, crabmeat, or boudin into their pizza options. And since I don’t get back to Lafayette as often as I’d like, I’ve had to recreate their pizzas in order to “get my Deano’s fix” until I can have the real thing.
The Blackened Shrimp pizza is one of their Pizza of the Month options and is not available year round. I believe it’s typically available the month of November.
