Blasphemy! Seasoned Buttered Crab Pizza
Some say you must throw salt over your left shoulder after the salt shaker falls.
Some say you must hold your breath while passing by a graveyard, so not to let the spirits in.
Some say real Italians don't use canned sauces and gravies.
Some say Charlie Sheen is a good actor.
Don't believe all you hear!
I say, real Italians use canned sauces and gravies, only in moderation, and dependent upon the application.
Application #1: The pizza pie. I use Don Peppino's Pizza Sauce. It has a nice, tangy flavor and great texture - perfect for pizza!
And if you looooove buttered crab, you will absolutely adore these individual pizzas.
4 Whole Wheat Tortilla Wraps
Imitation Krab (Yes, they spell crab with a K on the label)
4 tsps butter (melted)
Old Bay Seasoning
1 can Don Peppino's Pizza Sauce
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Step 2: Place each tortilla wrap in a 9" pie pan
Step 3: Spoon approx. 1/4 cup pizza sauce over each wrap
Step 4: Sprinkle approx. 3 tsp. old bay seasoning over the sauce
Step 5: Sprinkle approx. 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese over each wrap
Step 6: With your fingers, roughly tear apart the crab meat and place on top of the cheese
Step 7: Drizzle 1 tsp. butter over each pizza
Step 8: Sprinkle Old Bay seasoning over top
Step 9: Pop in the oven for 10 minutes, or until crisp
These pizzas are perfect as an appetizer for a dinner party, or for a BYOT (Bring your own topping) pizza night in. You can try any topping of your choice. I made margherita pizza with fresh sweet basil and mozzarella and a fresh mushroom version!
