Sunday Slow Bites: Crab Pizza

People rave about the Crab Pizza at Chickie & Pete's, a local Sports Bar famous for their Hardshell Crabs and Crab Fries. Since I love Crabs and Pizza, I decided to create my own Crab Pizza. It was really easy and very tasty. Here is what I did:

Pre-heat oven to 450. Spray a pizza pan or a Cookie Sheet with Cooking Spray.

(1) 9" Pizza Dough (I used a popular mix that required only 1/2 cup hot water)
2T Olive Oil
2T grated pecorino or parmesan cheese
2 garlic cloves,minced
3/4 Cup Marinara Sauce
8 oz. lump crabmeat
1 T capers
1/2 to 1 t crushed, red peppers

Press dough into a 9" round on a cookie sheet or a pizza pan. Brush dough with Olive Oil.Spread with 2 - 3 T Marinara Sauce. Sprinkle with grated cheese and minced garlic. Bake on lowest rack about 8 - 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Add crab meat. Sprinkle with capers and red peppers. Drizzle with another 2 -3 T Marinara Sauce. Return to oven for another 5 to 7 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.

My oven is usually takes at least the full amount of recommended time to cook. I cooked this for a total of 18 minutes. Though I like a crisp crust, this was a tadd too crisp. I think that 15 minutes would have been fine. We enjoyed this for dinner with a salad. If I were to make this for a larger gathering, I would use a large, square cookie sheet and cut it in to squares for serving.

This looks so good! What a great idea.

I am soooo impressed that you made your own pizza! Did you throw the dough up in the air?? It looks very delicious!!

Your pizza sounds really mouthwatering! I want some!

This pizza looks very delicious! I love crab and capers but never would have thought of using them together in a pizza. Yum!
