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 🙂
