One of my favourite pizzas. Best made with home-made dough too.

Mise en place

  3. Dust the work surface with fine yellow cornmeal

  6. Pre-cook the empty pizza base on one side only for about 3 minutes or until it is lightly browned

  8. Lightly oil one side of the pizza and grill, oiled side down, flip and repeat, about 2 minutes per side
  9. Tear the mozzarella into pieces and scatter over the pizza.
  10. Add the crayfish tails, garlic and olive oil and a grind of black pepper.
  11. Top with the grated pecorino or parmesan and top with a drizzle of olive oil.
  12. Bake for 3 or 4 minutes or until the cheese browns a little - watch it carefully as it can burn easily.
  13. Keep the fist pizza warm at the bottom of the oven whilst you make the second.
  14. Serve hot


I chopped up a small roasted red pepper and added to this as I had one spare.

Split a green Indian chilli down the middle and sautรฉ it with the onions and garlic and leave it with the prawns while they marinade. Remove and discard before making the pizza.

Leave the prawn , onions and garlic to marinade for a few hours if you have the time.
