When I grew up in Germany, Italian Pizzerias were plenty. And they all had wonderful food. One of the items that I remember is Seafood Pizza and how good it was. So I finally decided to make one and now on the urging of Mark Baars I am posting the recipe or at least my variation of items used to make it.
I googled seafood pizza and there are a lot of recipes out there, each with its own variation. But as usual I don’t just settle with one recipe I make my own up as I go along.
First, you can use either an already made Pizza crust, buy frozen pizza dough or if you feel like it even get a pizza crust mix and make it. I suggest a frozen pizza crust. I used an already made one, but I do think the flavor will better with a frozen one. Then I opted for garlic alfredo sauce instead of regular Pizza sauce. And instead of buying the small shrimp, calamari, imitation crab meat, imitation lobster and scallops individually I found a seafood medley with all the ingredients in the frozen seafood section which will work just as well. Then 2 small roma tomatoes, a small red onion, some sliced black olives, olive oil, minced garlic, shredded cheese – I used a 3 cheese medley made out of mozzarella, provolone, and romano cheese. But you can always just opt for one of the cheeses if you can’t find this item. And then the trusted grated Parmigiano cheese.
Preheat the oven to whatever your directions are on the crust you are using. Then slice some red onions, depending how much onion you like, the roma tomatoes ( you can either use them as whole slices or quarter them), drain your sliced black olives. Heat some virgin oil in a frying pan with a 1/2 tea-spoon of minced garlic and add the seafood, onions and olives. Heat that till your shrimp looked cooked or your onions look glossy but not browned. In the meantime cover the pizza crust with the garlic alfredo sauce. I only used a couple of tablespoons to cover mine, but I do believe you can use more to give the crust more flavor. Then sprinkle some Parmigiano cheese on top, add the heated ingredients and the tomatoes. Arrange it to your liking. Sprinkle some italian seasoning and garlic powder on top. Then cover it with cheese and another sprinkle of Parmigiano. Bake it till the crust is brown and/or the cheese is melted. Like I mentioned before I usually play around with recipes so it is hard for me to tell you how much to use of things. But if you are a seasoned cook or just adventurous you will find the right measurements. Anyway enjoy! I did!
