When I first decided to make white seafood pizza, I was thinking fancy. Make a creamy bechamel sauce for the base, then roast garlic for sophisticated flavor notes. Top with fresh thyme.

In the end I went easy. 

Friday night is usually our fish fry night out. And by out, I mean outside.

But as the temperature drops, eating outside is becoming less appealing. Sadly, a tradition we built to deal with Covid has become problematic.

So this week, with especially cold weather, I would be doing the cooking. And fancy/hard was not an option.  Add a little elegance to your pizza night with this easy, white seafood pizza--loaded with shrimp and scallops.

Thankfully I had some of my pre-baked pizza crusts (a flatbread or boboli would work too) so that part was a snap.

Then, instead of cooking a sauce, I created a cream cheese base by just mixing a few ingredients in the mixer.

The shrimp and scallops just needed thawing. 

I even used pre-grated mozzarella 🙂 !

The white seafood pizza was a wild success. And it reminded me that there’s more than one solution to any problem.

    Seafood pizza sounds lovely! Just recently even I tried white sauce over pizza (but with purple corn) for the first time and was so happy with it.

    This seems like the perfect (and fancy and elegant) meal! Love how you simplified it yet didn’t hold back on flavor or texture.

    New traditions in times of COVID-19? See everything with a new sense of appreciation. But technically, I think more about meal planning to avoid wasting any food. Not that I was wasteful before, it’s just that I’m more cognizant…

    My husband is a huge seafood eater and would totally love this pizza. I can’t wait to make it for him! Maybe I’ll add some crab to the white sauce.

    This looks so fancy – love that you made the process so easy and doable even on a weeknight. It looks delicious – and I’ve never actually had a seafood pizza yet, so I’m going to have to fix that asap!

    It does look elegant! Shrimp and scallops are so good together too. BTW, I wish temps would start cooling down here!
