crab rangoon pizza


it's the day before thanksgiving and your probably thinking what the heck crab rangoon pizza? well i kinda thought you might want a break and a recipe not thanksgiving.. shell declared this beauty her favorite pizza of all time i even had to make it twice last week.. pete came in the house on saturday and said can you make that shrimp pizza stuff again.. i looked at him blankly because for a few seconds i honestly had no idea what he was babbling again.. then i remembered on monday for dinner i had made this pizza with spicy thai chicken wings.. (sorry no photos of that dinner, i am finding it's just  to hard to take photos during the week they never turn out) so when pete asked for it again i jumped at the chance then i could take photos and share this yummy recipe with y'all.. i got the idea for this pizza from watching sandra lee's new show on the cooking channel, it's called something like lounge, taverns and bars.. it's basically an excuse for her to get her drink on.. i personally don't like her cooking shows but all liquored up she isn't to bad to take.. well she was in some bar having a funky monkey (some wild drink) and eating this pizza and it sounded so wonderful i decided to make it.. and let me tell you it doesn't disappoint at all.. i was supposed to top with crispy won tons and a drizzle of sweet and spicy chili sauce but i totally forgot to add it for the picture..  sorry.. i am getting oldtimers..


crab rangoon pizza

prep time: 15 minutes
cooking time: 7 minutes
servings: 2 pizzas

ingredients:

pizza dough (my go to recipe that i use can be found here or a pre made pizza dough from the store is fine..)
8 oz. 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
1 can of lump crab meat, drained and any hard bits picked out
1 scallion chopped green and white part
2 tsp. red thai curry powder
1 cup mozzarella cheese

garnish:
wonton skin cut into strips and fried or you can buy the fried crispy won ton salad toppers
sweet chili sauce
the green part of the scallion, chopped

preheat your oven to 500 degrees (f) for 30 minutes with your pizza stone in the oven.. cut dough in half and roll out dough on a floured surface to the thickness your family likes.. slide the pizza dough on to a piece of parchment paper.. in a medium mixing bowl combine cream cheese, lump crab meat, scallions and curry powder.. stir to combine.. spread mixture among the 2 pizza dough rounds.. sprinkle 1/2 cup of mozzarella on each pizza.. pick up parchment and pizza and slide gently onto pizza stone...one at a time bake until lightly brown and cheese is melted.. about 6-7 minutes.. but keep an eye on it the thin pizza cooks up pretty fast.. remove from oven sprinkle green onion, crispy won tons and drizzle a little sweet chili sauce.. slice and serve with with some spicy sriracha chicken wings.. my recipe found here..

enjoy and get cook'n!!
 
i hope you and your family have a wonderful thanksgiving i can't wait to hear all it!!
