Seafood Pizza


  • Dough

  • 250 ml lukewarm Water

  • 1 teaspoon Sugar

  • 1 Sachet Yeast

  • 60 g Olive Oil

  • 1 teaspoon Salt

  • 2 cups Flour more if needed

  • 500 ml Milk

  • 1 Bay leaf

  • 1 piece Onion

  • 55 g Butter

  • 0.25 cup Flour

  • 1 tin crab about 120 g, drained

  • 100 g Goat's Cheese

  • hot-smoked Salmon cut into small, bite-sized pieces

  • cold-smoked Salmon

  • 5 green onion chopped


  • Dough:

  • 1.

    Make the dough: sprinkle the yeast and sugar over the water in a large bowl and let sit 10 minutes.

  • 2.

    Add the oil, salt, and half the flour.

  • 3.

    Beat smooth.

  • 4.

    Knead in the remaining flour, more as needed, to create a soft dough that doesn’t stick to the hands.

  • 5.

    Cover in a bowl and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.

  • 6.

    Punch down the dough and stretch it out to fit on a pizza sheet.

  • 7.

    While the dough is rising, bring the milk to the boiling point in a saucepan with the bay leaf and onion.

  • 8.

    Turn off the heat, cover, and leave to infuse about 15 minutes.

  • 9.

    Melt the butter in another saucepan, then whisk in the flour, and keep whisking on the heat for a full minute to cook out the flour taste.

  • 10.

    Slowly whisk in the milk, until smooth, and cook, stirring until thick, about 3 minutes.

  • 11.

    Stir in the crab, and half the cheese.

  • 12.

    Heat the oven to 400ºF/200ºC.

  • 13.

    Distribute pieces of hot-smoked salmon over the pizza crust.

  • 14.

    Spoon the sauce overtop (this will protect it from overcooking).

  • 15.

    Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and the chopped white part of the green onions, reserving the chopped green for garnish later.

  • 16.

    Bake 25 minutes until the crust is crisp.

  • 17.

    Scatter the green of the onions over. (If you like, lay on a few slivers of cold-smoked salmon for extra colour)

  • 18.

what do you mean by 1 sachet of yeast? can you instead write it as teaspoon or tablespoon.
