Comfort food

Tonight we had clam pizza.  Great choice given that due to a traffic accident, it took me almost 2 hours to get home from work.  The clam pizza takes about 5 minutes to assemble and 10 minutes to cook and we both love it.  We buy the frozen clam meat at Wegman’s.  (In fact, the clam meat, the pizza shell and the Mozzarella cheese were all from the freezer – good ingredients to keep on hand.)

Clam Pizza

  • 1 pizza crust (Boboli is fine or fresh from your market)
  • 2 TB olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 TB Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2/3 cup clam meat (frozen, fresh or canned)
  • Fresh parsley

Combine garlic, olive oil and red pepper flakes.  Brush over pizza crust.  Spread pizza crust with mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese and clams.  Sprinkle with parsley and bake for 10 – 12 minutes in a 450 oven.  Enjoy.

If you don’t like clams, you could take a similar approach with shrimp.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
