  • 1 cup of grated cheese such as parmesan, romano, pecorino or a combination
  • Provence herbs to taste
  • Cayenne powder to taste
  • For the vodka sauce drizzle - reference my vodka sauce recipe for instructions, but you'll want to make a much smaller portion of that recipe. I eyeballed ingredient amounts since I've made that sauce so many times, but you'll need the following ingredients:
  • Olive oil
  • Anchovies
  • Garlic
  • Vodka
  • Tomato paste
  • Heavy cream
  • Cayenne
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to temperature instructed on the back of the pizza dough package. Start making vodka sauce by referencing instructions on that recipe
  2. Simultaneously start making your creamy cheese sauce by heating up some oil on a skillet and when hot, add your garlic, finely chopped
  3. Cook until fragrant and almost caramelized. Add your cream and mix well
  4. Add in your grated cheese and herbs and cayenne. Mix and let flavors meld on low heat. Make your garlic butter by melting butter and mixing with lots of garlic powder or minced garlic; set aside
  5. Roll out your pizza dough and pour creamy cheese sauce all over, with the exception of what will become your pizza crust. Add as much shredded cheese as you want and then add the entire bag of langostino tails. Drizzle the vodka sauce over the lobster and brush crust with garlic butter. Pop in oven for time indicated on the dough package
  6. Remove from oven and let cook. Top with herbs of choice, more grated parm, red pepper flakes, and oregano. Enjoy!
RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is just so good. I had a vision when I saw the lobster and I just went with it and it came out perfect! Would make the saucer a little less cheesy next time, but otherwise, it was perfect
