Creamy Garlic Chicken and Seafood Pizza

Pizza is an all time favourite at our place. It becomes a family activity, everyone rolls out their own base and puts their pizza toppings on. It’s a fun way to get the kids in the kitchen and they can’t blame me for how it turns out since they made it, lol!  Miss 4 loves calamari and scallops, Miss 6 loves chicken and master 10… well he just loves food… a pizza with those 3 things on works perfectly and keeps everyone happy. I love these ingredients with creamy sauces, this is my claytons Alfredo sauce (an Alfredo sauce without the Alfredo… so no Parmesan cheese which is very high in amines and glutamates). This sauce is lovely tossed through pasta too.

Pizza Base:
I used the Thermomix pizza base recipe from the EDC (Everyday Cookbook) and substituted 100g of the bakers flour for Quinoa flour. You can easily use your own favourite pizza base recipe, especially if you are gluten free.

Sauce base:
3 cloves garlic
30g butter
150g philly cheese
30g cream

Chop garlic on speed 7 for 5 seconds. Add butter. Melt on 50deg for 2 minutes speed 1.

Add philly cheese and cream. Mix to combine for 10 second on speed 7.

If making the cheese sauce before hand, keep in the fridge. It will set hard, so just before wanting to use it, place in the microwave for 20 seconds to soften it enough to spread over the base.

Toppings:

You can use any toppings you desire to suit your tastes, allergies or intolerances. I found that the seafood worked better and cooked to perfection when I lightly cooked them in a little skillet first. Scallops about 1 minute on each side and tossed the calamari around in a little oil for 1 – 2 minutes.  Miss 4 just had scallops and calamari on hers with a garlic and herbs without the sauce. Miss 6 just had the sauce and chicken, the rest of us had everything. It was absolutely lovely.
I found that the base cooks better when cooked on a pizza stone, the base was crisp, it rose more during cooking and didn’t go soggy with the sauce. If you regularly make pizzas, I highly recommend investing in one. We were given one last Christmas and will be getting a second.

We used:
500g cooked chicken, diced
200g scallops
100g calamari
Chopped chives
Chopped parsley *
Pear Ketchup

To assemble:
After making and preparing the pizza base, roll out each round, place on a pizza stone or tray. Spread generously with the sauce. Top with your chosen ingredients. Sprinkle with herbs and squirt swirls, cross hatch or funny faces with the Pear Ketchup to garnish.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180° for approx 10 – 15 minutes or until cooked.

 

*Parsley is now listed in the RPAH handbook to be used as a garnish, if you know your family can not tolerate it, leave it out of the recipe. My family is ok with parsley in cooking.

When buying your seafood, if you are doing the failsafe diet, especially the elimination phase, please keep the following in mind which is taken directly from the Fed Up web site:
“Fish and seafood must be very fresh, best eaten within 12 hours of catch or frozen and eaten within 2 weeks (in my experience, supermarket fish and seafood is never fresh enough). White fish or seafood, e.g. snapper, barramundi, whiting, crab, lobster, oysters, calamari, scallops (but not salmon, tuna or prawns). Best from speciality fish shops, fishing co-ops and friends who fish, ask for the freshest and eat that day”.

    Hey, When you say “Philly Cheese”, are you referring to Philadelphia Cream Cheese?
