Below is my seafood recipe for Rustic Pesto Pizza With Crab Surimi, Fresh Mozzarella, and Tomatoes from About.Com Fish and Seafood Cooking, where each week I share my newest seafood recipes and tips.
The words pizza and the words party naturally go together. When I was growing up in the NY Metro area, pizza was the one food that was never far from my thoughts (and in a place where salt bejeweled pretzels, pillowy knishes, and meatballs so amazing that you lived in dread of reaching the last bite abounded, that is really saying something).
It’s a splendid day indeed when you get to enjoy the perfect handheld envelopes of cheesy, tomatoey goodness that is pizza; whether classic NYC style, as bubbly sheet pizza, or a fine deep dish that goes straight to the heart of things.
Pizza was my default food then, the food every other culinary choice was measured against. Convenient, versatile, and just right for gatherings with friends.
This week’s recipe for Rustic Pesto Pizza With Crab Surimi, Fresh Mozzarella, and Tomatoes, is a delicious, timesaving, and economical version of the beloved Italian classic. Hand-stretched personal pizzas are just the thing to make when you want to entertain casually yet thoughtfully indoors or outdoors; whether as the main event or as a fun side dish.
