Crab, Scallop and Prawn Pizza

This is a treat, a posh pizza! It was delicious, I love shellfish and I love pizza so the two together was a delight. I don’t think I would be able to afford it all the time though. As it’s a white sauce it doesn’t overpower the sweet meat and the brown meat in the sauce really enhances that seafood flavour. I halved the scallops and prawns so 1 they went further and of course the main reason being the cook is even.

Ingredients

For the White Sauce
  • 30g butter
  • 30g all purpose flour (plain)
  • 1 pint of milk
  • 1 tsp of Dijon mustard
  • Brown meat from 1 crab (reserve white)
  • Good pinch of sea salt and fresh black pepper
For the Pizza
  • 1 ready made pizza base
  • White sauce
  • White meat from 1 crab
  • 6 scallops, sliced in half lengthways (I keep the roe/coral too)
  • 6 deveined and peeled king prawns, sliced in half
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 lemon

Directions

For the White Sauce
  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan until it starts to foam.
  2. Tip in the flour and whisk so it forms a roux. Cook for a couple of minutes so the flour cooks a bit.
  3. add the milk a good splash at a time, continually whisking keep going until the sauce is nice and smooth and a slightly runny consistency.
  4. Stir in the brown crab meat and mustard. Finish off with seasoning to taste.
For the Pizza
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees (fan).
  2. Place the pizza base of a pizza stone or baking tray.
  3. Spoon over the white sauce evenly. Add the white crab meat, scallops, prawns and capers.
  4. Cook for 12 minutes. Serve with a scattering of the parsley and a squeeze of lemon. Enjoy 😊
