lobster pizza

ever since we returned from jamaica last month, i have been trying to recreate different recipes i fell in love with over there, one of which was the lobster pizza!

here is my copycat attempt:


pizza sauce (homemade or store bought)
shredded mozzarella cheese (i like sargento "off the block" mozzarella)
1 medium green pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
about 12 oz steamed and seasoned lobster meat (~ three lobster tails)
a few pinches of oregano

preheat the oven to 450.  coat your pizza pan with a small amount of nonstick spray.  press out the dough.  top with your favorite pizza sauce.  place a thin layer of cheese on top of the sauce.  next, layer the green pepper, onion, and lobster meat evenly.  finish with a final layer of cheese and a few pinches of oregano.  bake until the bottom of the crust is golden brown, and the cheese is nice and bubbly (anywhere from 10-20 minutes depending on your oven). 

*this is the best pizza dough recipe i have found.  i don't have one of those fancy counter top mixers, so i just mix and knead everything by hand.  oh, and do yourselves a favor and use bread flour people!!  it's life changing (as far as homemade pizza dough is concerned).  i also add just a few pinches of sugar in the mix too for just a hint of sweetness.

*another disclaimer. . . we probably would not have been able to afford to make this pizza if the lobster tail wasn't half off at lowes grocery (the price of three lobster tails adds up pretty quickly).  if you're not lucky enough to catch a deal like that, shrimp would be a more affordable yet delicious alternative.  

C'est Magnifique!
