Rock Bottom - Cajun Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Pizza w/ Jambalaya Sauce

The appearance is that of a small, 9" flatbread with a nice mix of shrimp, andouille, peppers, and tomatoes. A decent amount of cheese is scattered along the pie, covering most of the shell. - 2

The crust is a thin, doughy interior with a small amount of air pockets showing from a yeast rise. Crispy, crunchy edges round out the exterior rim of the pie. - 2.5

The sauce...not the typical tomato sauce(obviously) but the Jambalaya sauce is a mix of spicy sweetness with some standout tomatoes and peppers scattered near the interior of the pie. - 3

The cheese seems to be a Cheddar mix...possibly with Monterey Jack. It's melted into a crispy shell. Perhaps a bit too much burnt at the outer edges but the cheese retains a decent gooeyness on the interior of the pie. - 2.5

Overall, this was a decent pie. I wasn't blown away but I give these guys credit in King of Prussia for offering a different pizza daily. This wasn't the best I've had from them but it was decent enough to mention. The Cajun themed pie(day after Fat Tuesday) is kind of cool and it seems to work well enough with the texture of the shrimp, & sausage, the mild heat of the sauce, and the doughy bread. - 2.5

Total Score: 2.5/5
