Old Faithful

Last night was a completely new invention so tonight is a reliable standby.  This pizza is one of our favorites.  I don’t think I could get my husband to have salad for dinner two nights in a row but by loading this up with arugula, we’re still getting our veggies!

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.

The first week back from vacation is a tough adjustment for everyone so I thought I’d make things easy on myself with a simple dinner tonight.  This is always a winner – proof is that we ate it up before I could take a picture!
