Seafood is endlessly versatile. Serve it as an appetizer, entrée or snack. Enjoy it in a Mediterranean, Asian or another style. Try adding it to pasta or risotto, or try the following recipe if you want a crunchy taste of Italy. We are using shrimp, mussels and squid here, along with other ingredients to make this exquisite seafood pizza.

You will need a pizza crust for this, or you can use your own dough. A whole wheat pizza crust would be good here, or else you could just use a regular one. Along with the seafood, we are using tomato sauce, dill weed, garlic, goat’s cheese and olives to top this pizza. You can use any kind of tomato sauce, and omit the olives if you want. Also, feel free to swap the goat’s cheese for mozzarella, or leave off the garlic.

The pizza is first topped with the tomato sauce, then baked in the oven. Meanwhile you can prepare the selection of toppings. Then add all the other ingredients and bake it in the oven again. You will be able to tell when the pizza is done because the crust will be golden brown and the seafood will be warm. You do not have to get the seafood hot (and in fact that might dry it out) but get it nice and warm, and allow the cheese to melt, then the pizza is ready to serve. Either make one large pizza or 3 or 4 individual pizzas if you prefer to have individual ones.

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
