Nov. 14 Tips & Tricks 1.5 min

It looks like you need some advice for cooking supreme, badass seafood pizza. You’ve come to the right place.

First, you need to know that for us here at Hot Rocks Ovens, pizza isn’t a simple meal. It truly is a lifestyle.

Second, we will generously reveal some of our secrets to help you stand on your own two feet. If you have any complaints, please keep them to yourself. We’re going to teach you some things, aren’t you grateful for that?

Alright then, let’s begin with the first one.

You Must Choose, but Choose Wisely

You want your seafood fresh, so don’t go buy some cheap seafood at the nearest supermarket you find. Come on, your pizza deserves better than that. Have some self-respect and find a decent seafood counter.

Get the Sea Without the Salt

We like the sea, but let’s get rid of seafood’s excess salt by rinsing well before cooking it. You’ll thank us later.

Upgrade Your Defrost Game

Alright, you didn’t find the freshest of all seafood, and you had your heart set on some frozen shrimp. Then you better not scandalously thaw them out into the sink without wiping them off with a paper towel after. There’s some excess water to get rid of, too.

For Goodness’ Sake, Choose Bechamel

Tomatoes are a no-go: It’s bechamel all the way for a wicked lip-smacking seafood pizza your friends will beg you to serve ’em.

Go Strong with Mild Cheese

Gosh, we like cheese as much as you do. But if there’s one thing you need to know, it’s that you don’t want your cheese to be so strong that you lose the taste of those glorious shrimps. We know you bought $20 of them.

If you crave more flavors, forget strong cheese and try adding mushrooms or caramelized onions instead.

The Green Stuff

Herbs and a few veggies s are priceless for spicing up seafood pizzas. Add parsley, cilantro, dill and green onions. You’re welcome.

Don’t Overdo it

All seafood should be cooked before making it a topping for your supreme pizza. But do so carefully as it will be cooked again later once on your pizza. Don’t say you wanted it that way.

Avoid Business as Usual

Come on, spoil yourself with a stuffed crust. Go mad! We know about your diet. But if you don’t tell your other half, we won’t either. Deal?

Man, you’re still here? Go cook the ultimate seafood pizza NOW!
