PIZZA OF THE SEA

This Ricotta Seafood Pizza provides me with my two favorite food groups, cheese and seafood. Pizza with ricotta cheese is the best. I rarely love an ingredient as much as do ricotta cheese. OK maybe garlic or basil or parmesan or tomatoes or prosciutto but that’s it I swear.

The variety of seafood you can use for this pizza is up to you. Personally I use shrimp (of course), crabmeat, and bay scallops with a tomato sauce. Some people do prefer a white sauce for this dish but I personally like the taste of the tomatoes with the seafood. You can top it with lobster, clams or anchovies if you wish just don’t use clown fish or guppies or angel fish because you’ll really upset the kids and they don’t taste that good anyway.

What else can I say about this Ricotta Seafood Pizza? The ricotta cheese just adds such a great flavor to the pizza and compliments the seafood very well. I also like to sprinkle dried basil all over the top with a little parmesan cheese.
