Day 88 : Lobster Pizza

Or in this case… Crab Pizza.  If you have ever been to Red Lobster and gone crazy over their Lobster Pizza appetizer this recipe is for you!  It’s a fairly good imitation of Red Lobster’s version and surprisingly simple to make!  I used imitation crab meat because it’s just easier, and of course cheaper.

An added bonus about this recipe is that it is fairly low fat/calorie if altered just a bit.  The first time I made this I used a wheat tortilla, reduced fat cheeses, and a reduced fat butter.  At the time I was on weight watchers, and Jeff and I each ate half a pizza for only a few points.  Today I went full fat, and ate the whole thing lol.  Using the tortilla shells as the crust makes it the perfect size for one person to have as a meal, or a light appetizer for 2-4.

I cooked mine on a pizza stone that I pre-heated while the oven heated.  I find that this works best to get the crisp crust without over-cooking the rest of the pizza, since over-cooked fish is not very appetizing.  Definitely don’t skip the salt and pepper on the bottom because that really makes it great, and the same with the fresh lemon squeezed on top at the end.

Lobster Pizza

Serves : 1-4           Time to make : 15 minutes

Ingredients :

  • 1 (10-inch) flour tortilla
  • 1 oz. Land O’ Lakes Roasted Garlic Butter Spread
  • 2 T. grated fresh parmesan cheese
  • 4 oz. roma tomatoes, diced (I used one large roma tomato)
  • 2 T. fresh basil, julienne style
  • 2 oz. lobster meat, diced
  • 1/2 cup cheese, italian blend shredded
  • lemon juice
  • course salt and pepper
  • cooking spray or oil

Directions :

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  I suggest also preheating your intended baking sheet/stone.
  2. Spread butter onto the tortilla, making sure to completely cover every inch.
  3. Sprinkle parmesan on next, and then the tomatoes, basil, and lobster.
  4. Top with the shredded cheese.
  5. Spray your baking sheet/stone with cooking spray or brush with a bit of oil.  Then sprinkle course salt and fresh ground pepper onto the sheet/stone.
  6. Place your assembled pizza on top of the salt and pepper and bake for 5 minutes or until crust is browned and crisp.
  7. Squeeze a bit of fresh lemon juice on top of the finished pizza to really make the flavors pop, and cut into slices.
