I got this idea to re-create "Red Lobsters "Lobster Pizza" because it was SO GOOD.... so I went to Red Lobster site to see if they offered the recipe and sure enough, there it was, so I went to the store and bought everything I needed and went home and made it... uhmm good! Great lunch or snack. or appetizer if a couple friends come over. Enjoy! Great with beer.

I made this pizza as an appetizer for DH's backyard barbeque birthday party. He LOVES Red Lobster's lobster pizza, and this tasted just like it! I did make a few adjustments to suit our own taste--I used tomato-basil flour tortillas spread with a base of olive oil, minced garlic and a dash of tarragon instead of garlic spread. Also, I used fresh thinly sliced roma tomatoes instead of diced tomatoes. Then I followed the rest of the recipe and directions as written. The pizza turned out crispy on the bottom with a wonderfully flavorful topping. Soooo good! Thanks for sharing!
- 1 (10 inch) flour tortillas (per pizza)
- 1 ounce Land O Lakes roasted garlic butter with oil
- 2 tablespoons grated fresh parmesan cheese
- 4 ounces drained roma tomatoes, diced 3/8-inch (approx. 2-3 tomatoes)
- 2 tablespoons fresh basil, cut in 1/8-inch julienne strips
- 2 ounces lobster meat, cut in 1/2-inch - 3/4-inch chunks
- 1⁄2 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
Directions See How It's Made
- Heat oven to 450°F.
- Lightly brush entire topside of tortilla with garlic butter (edge to edge).
- Sprinkle two tablespoons Parmesan cheese over the garlic butter.
- After draining the diced tomatoes, sprinkle evenly over Parmesan cheese.
- To julienne the basil, wash it and shake off excess water. Pick off leaves and stack on top of one another. Using a chef's knife, cut into 1/8" strips. Do not chop. Sprinkle evenly over the diced tomatoes.
- Make sure lobster meat is cut into 1/2" - 3/4" chunks. Portion lobster meat, drain it unless it's fresh off the tail and then sprinkle it evenly over the tomatoes.
- Sprinkle the Italian six-cheese blend evenly over the diced tomatoes.
- Refrigerate until ready to cook.
- Brush a pizza pan lightly with vegetable oil and sprinkle lightly with ground black pepper and kosher salt. (This prep is essential!).
- When oven is ready, place pizza on pan and cook approximately four to five minutes.
- Remove from pan and cut into eight wedges.
- Squeeze fresh lemon over pizza for extra flavor and serve.
- Chef's Tip:.
- Be sure you DRAIN the tomatoes and the lobster meat before sprinkling them over the pizza shell. Otherwise your pizza will turn out soggy.
- I like to use a oblong pizza or cookie sheet so I can make a few at a time. I use Large 10" shells, or you can make personal pan pizzas with the small ones, just cut down the ingredients.
