Sam and I made lobster pizza today for lunch. It is our version of something we had similar at Red Lobster sometime ago. We loved it and I’ll be making this again. We put our own spin on a copy cat recipe that I had saved.
4 thin crust pre-baked pizza crusts
Alfredo Sauce (use your favorite store brand to save work)
1 medium tomato
Sprinkle of dried basil or chopped fresh basil (what ever you have)
2 lobster tails
Shredded Italian 5 blend cheese
Salt and pepper
Boil lobster tails and cut the shell in half to pull the lobster meat out of the shell. Chop into bite sized pieces. Add a small splash of lemon juice (1/2 tsp.) and a pat of butter and let it melt. Set aside.
Dice and drain your tomato on paper towel. Set aside.
Preheat your oven to 450°.
Spread a bit of olive oil on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle a very small amount of Kosher salt and a bit of pepper on top of the oil. Lay down 2 pizza crusts. Lightly spread 3 cheese Alfredo sauce on top. Sprinkle the blend of cheeses on top.
Spread the diced tomato evenly on the top. Sprinkle a small amount of fresh or dried basil over the top. Top with pieces of lobster.
Bake it for five minutes or until the cheese is melted and browned a bit. Everything is already cooked. You just need to heat and serve allowing you to make up in advance and just heating before serving.
Slice the pizza into eight pieces. Recipe made 4 small pizzas.
These make great individual pizzas or appetizers.
Variation - You can substitute the lobster and use crab, imitation crab or small shrimp. I will be buying the thin crust pre-baked pizza crusts again in the future and making my own little mini pizzas with my own twists on them.
They would make a great appetizer for a Kentucky Derby party this afternoon. Hope you have a great Saturday. Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
