Mussel and Garlic Sauce Pizza Recipe


Mussel Garlic Sauce Pizza

A great seafood based pizza

Who doesn't love a good slice of pizza. This pizza recipe with mussel meat and garlic sauce is outstanding. I am getting hungry just thinking about this pizza as I type. To speed up preparation pick up prepared dough or pizza crust.




½ pound cooked mussel meat (thawed)

1 lb. mozzarella cheese, shredded

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

½ pound cooked mussel meat

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

6 garlic cloves minced

2 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese

½ tsp dried oregano

¼ tsp red pepper flakes

½ tsp dried parsley

Pinch of salt to taste

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

1 teaspoon white sugar

1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

 2 1/2 cups bread flour

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

corn meal to coat pizza pan




For the pesto sauce


In a bowl combine the olive oil, garlic, parmesan cheese, oregano, pepper flakes parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly.


Place the mussel meat in a bowl and put just enough of the garlic sauce on them to coat. Place in the refrigerator to marinate while making the pizza dough. Reserve the rest of the garlic sauce to spread over the pizza dough.


For the pizza dough


Pour 1 cup of warm water into a large mixing bowl, sprinkle with yeast and let sit about five minutes until foamy.


Thoroughly stir sugar, oil and salt into the yeast mixture. Add flour and stir until dough forms. Transfer dough to an oiled bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set in a warm draft free place until dough has doubled in size. About 1 hour.


Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead a couple times. Press dough in desired shape. Sprinkle corn meat on baking sheet, too keep the dough from sticking and then place pizza dough on baking sheet.


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Spread a layer of garlic sauce on pizza dough to within an inch of the end of the crust. Place marinated mussel meat on the dough. Cover with shredded cheese and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let baked pizza cool for 5 minutes before serving.
