I Just Can't Get Enough: Clams Casino Pizza

I just can't get enough

I just can't get enough

Do you know the song?  I am the worst with music. I never know the titles or the artist.  For the most part I get the words wrong too.

Mr. J likes to point out my mistakes.  I sing to myself in my car.  It is a good time.  No one cares about wrong words when you are in your car by yourself. Only weird looks from passing cars.  I am OK with that...Hi Strangers!

This pizza I cannot get enough of...Clams Casino, spiked with some hot peppers and then cut with bacon bits.

The night was stormy so the lighting was all off on the photos.  Regardless let me assure you this is some good stuff.  I just can't get enough!

Mr. J wanted red sauce and thus it was added. I think it took a bit of the clam flavor away but like I said, I just can't get enough.

Clams Casino Pizza

Adapted from How Sweet It Is
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Keywords: bake entree Italian

Ingredients (serves 4)
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 1 small red onion, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 small red pepper, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 cans of minced clams, drained
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat. Chop the 4 raw slices of bacon and add to the skillet. Cook for 3 minutes just so a bit of fat is rendered. You do not want the bacon to be crispy at this point. Remove it with a slotted spoon and set it aside in a bowl, then turn heat down to medium.

Add in onions and peppers with a sprinkle of salt, and stir. Cook for 5 minutes, continuously stirring. Add in garlic and cook for 3 more minutes. Completely drain clams, then add them to the peppers and onions along with half of the bacon. Cook for 2 minutes.

Brush olive oil over pizza dough evenly and sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Sprinkle dough with 4 ounces of mozzarella. Spoon clam/pepper/onion mixture evenly over pizza, then top with remaining mozzarella, parmesan, and the rest of the bacon. Bake for 25-30 minutes until cheese is golden and bubbly.

  1. Oh, this sounds heavenly, Emily! I sure wish I could get the Mr. to eat clams, but I could always put them on my half :)

  2. I've never had clams on my pizza. Sounds like a wonderful idea! I'm going to have to get a little more creative with the next pizza I make. I'm seriously loving this idea!

  3. Haha I sing in the car like it's my job! Who cares what everyone else thinks? about I don't even like clams and this pizza looks fantastic? It's gorgeous!

  5. Wow this looks so yummy. I have never had clams on a pizza, but it sounds really good.

  6. Clams on pizza? Why didn't I think of this!? Never tried it before but sounds awesome. I enjoy grilled squid on pizza, so I'm sure it would be quite similar. I like the flavors that are on the pizza - different but familiar
