Recipe For Scallop Pizza

The foodbuzz project food blog set various tasks and it was my intention to complete all of them. But, that did not happen. Life intervened and here I am, many months later sharing my idea for the pizza challenge. The taste of this is scallop pizza is unique and I will continue to experiment with the concept of a pizza base, sauce and topping. I have a large pizza baking pan and this fed the two of us quite easily.

    1. I buy frozen ones when I see them – they come in a ziploc type of bag, and are available from Seafood on Sail in Strand. I think they have an outlet in Hout Bay as well, but I am not sure. The pizza was a whim 🙂
