Equipment

  • Pizza oven or oven
  • Pizza Peel
  • Pizza dough roller
  • Parchment paper

Ingredients

  • 6 oz Skinny Pizza Dough My Bizzy Kitchen recipe
  • 2 TBSP Light garlic and herb spread I used Alouette brand
  • 3/4 Cup Fat free mozzarella I use Kraft brand
  • 1/3 Cup Corn
  • 1 6.5 oz Can of clams Drained
  • 1/4 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • Dak's Nothin But Ranch seasoning code:chefallie10 for 10% off
  • 1 tsp Joe's Super-Fuzed Roasted Garlic Herb Oil
  • Scallions to garnish
  • Arugula to garnish
  • Salt & Pepper to garnish

Instructions

  • We make our pizzas in our Bertello pizza oven so if you do not have one then you should preheat your oven to 425
  • Roll out the desired amount of dough, I like to use 6-7 ounces
  • Once rolled out, spread the garlic and herb cheese all over.
  • Sprinkle the cheese, drained clams, corn, Old Bay & Dak's Nothin But Ranch seasoning
  • Place onto pizza peel and into the Pizza oven ( Our pizza only takes 3 minutes ) but if in the oven it'll take about 10-12 minutes depending on how you like the crust. When cooking pizza in the oven I love using a cast iron pan or you can use a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  • One all done. Brush the crust with the oil if desired and garnish with scallions, arugula , salt, pepper and crushed red pepper flakes if desired and enjoy!
