Lobster Pizza

There was a restaurant that my husband and I would go to get an appetizer, called Lobster Pizza.  They ended up changing it to a flat bread, and it wasn’t nearly as good.  I’ve made my own version of the recipe, and it’s fantastic!  It’s great as a main dish or even as an appetizer.

Here’s how to make it:

Pizza dough

2 lobster tails

Extra virgin olive oil

½ cup margarine

2 tsp garlic powder

½ tsp dried dill

2 Roma tomatoes

¼ cup fresh basil

1 cup mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup breadcrumbs or cornmeal

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.  If using a pizza stone, put the pizza stone in the oven while preheating.

Bring water to boil (enough water to cover lobster tails).  Reduce to simmer.  Add the lobster tails.  Simmer until the tails turn bright orange, about 5 minutes.

Sprinkle some of the breadcrumbs onto the pizza stone.  Transfer the pizza carefully to the pizza stone.  The stone will be extremely hot, so use oven mitts.  If you're using a baking sheet, sprinkle the sheet with the crumbs and transfer the pizza to the baking sheet.  (You could also assemble the pizza on the baking sheet without preheating the baking sheet)
