Catching up – Pesto scallop and arugula pizza

Life was so hectic Thursday night that I didn’t get a chance to update blog.  I won’t go into details but leave it at the fact that one of our dogs needed an urgent bath!  Here is what I fixed before I washed the dog.

Scallop and Arugula Pizza

  • 2/3 lb sea scallops, rinsed and dried and sliced into thin slices
  • 3 TB pesto
  • 1 pizza crust (I used whole wheat)
  • 1 1/2 TB tomato paste and tomato sauce (tomato sauce alone makes this a little watery and the paste is a little strong – a combination of two is perfect but either alone will do.)
  • 1 cup arugula, rinsed and dried
  • 1  TB Pinenuts
  • Fresh grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat ovento 450.  Combine scallop slices and pesto in bowl.  Spread tomato paste on pizza crust and top with arugula.  Arrange pesto scallop slices on arugula and spread any extra pesto on top.  Sprinkle pine nuts on top and bake for 8 – 10 minutes or until scallops are cooked through.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve.
