The uncooked base with the crabmeat and brown shrimp

Being a seafood lover I thought that crabmeat would be nice on a pizza. When Anne came in with the ingredients, she surprised me with a pack of peeled brown shrimps so I combined the two and made a fabulous pizza.

The only downside was the amount of liquid in the crabmeat, added to increase the nett weight rather than for any culinary reason. It made the pizza a little wet. Next time I make this I will spin the crabmeat in a salad spinner to reduce the amount of liquid. If you don't have a salad spinner just sit the crabmeat in a sieve for 30 minutes.

Mise en place


  1. Divide the pizza dough into two and roll out into two pizzas
  2. Make each pizza individually and place the first one in the oven to keep warm whilst the second pizza completes
  3. Grill the pizza for about 2 to 3 minutes per side with no toppings added
  4. Removed the part-baked pizza and spread with Tomato sauce for pizza or passata
  5. Sprinkle with the finely chopped onions
  6. Add the peeled brown shrimp and cover with the crabmeat
  7. Arrange the torn mozzarella over the seafood. Try to cover as much of the seafood as possible so it does not get too crisped
  8. Season with salt and black pepper and drizzle with chili oil if liked
  9. Bake for about 3 or 4 minutes under the hot grill until the mozzarella just starts to brown
  10. Serve immediately
