Seafood is a great topping for pizza, because the crispy dough serves as a nice base and the juicy sauce complements its flavor. Bring the flavor of the ocean to your dinner table for the whole family to enjoy, by making the following shrimp and scallop pizza recipe. You can use small or medium shrimp for this (or large ones if you chop them) as well as any size scallops. Just cut the seafood into smaller pieces if necessary.

Red bell pepper is also introduced to this pizza, for color and extra sweetness, and two kinds of cheese are featured, as well as a pinch of dried oregano for a typical Italian flavor. You can buy pizza dough ready to roll out or you can make your own. You can even buy ready-rolled pizza crusts, but rolling your own dough out means a more rustic result. The pizza crusts you buy in the store are too symmetrical and lack that homemade charm.

The following recipe can be baked on a pizza stone, and many people like to use those for the crispy results it delivers, but if you do not have one, simply bake your pizza on a pizza tray or just a plain baking tray. If you only have a rectangular baking sheet, then just make a rectangular pizza.

Photo Description:

This is not only a delicious pizza recipe but also a very colorful one, with the attractive pink shrimp and bright red strips of bell pepper on top. You can see how the shrimp and scallops are cooked perfectly and the scallops are slightly browned in places. Seafood can be baked if you follow a good baked seafood recipe, and using shrimp and scallops to top a pizza means you can make something flavorful which the whole family will love. If you are usually a ‘meat feast’ fan then why not try topping your next pizza with delicate seafood instead of sausage, salami or chicken, and see how it compares?

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.


Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.


Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.


Thanks for visiting,


Christine
