Attention pizza lovers and seafood lovers, have you ever tried a garlic crab pizza?! If not, you better check out below recipe!
I’m a huge pizza lover! The combination of bread and cheese with some sauce, who can resist! One of my favorite food when I have time to prep is to make pizza. It is very easy to make, simple to prepare and so tasty! Even if you don’t have time to make the dough yourself, you can always purchase pre-made ones from the grocery store. As to toppings, you just can’t go wrong with anything, everything or nothing!
My favorite pizza is wood-fire pizza but we can’t make that at home… at least majority of us don’t have that luxury. But no worries. There are different ways to cook the pizza and make it extra tasty too. Besides the traditional oven cooking the pizza, you can also put it on a BBQ grill or big stir fry pan (required lit)!
