"I used leftover crabmeat and artichokes from another meal, and this turned out delicious! Enjoy! Fresh pizza dough can often be found in the deli section of supermarkets." — Laurie

I'm updating this review because I've made this pizza quite a few times now and made little changes to lower the fat and calories. I started using the new spray-on salad dressing (I use the Caesar flavor) as the base in place of the olive oil. Just a few sprays and it's ready for topping. I use the fake crabmeat to cut costs and marinated artichoke hearts, cut up, to replace the ones packed in water. Sometimes I add sliced red onion and mushrooms if I feel like it. I top it with the reduced fat Italian cheese blend and a little parmesan. Really delish! 6/07/08The whole family really enjoyed this... thanks for a keeper! Great combination of flavors!
I switched the olive oil with ceaser dresing. I thought it was only ok.
This was really good. The flavors blended well together.
Excellent! My hubby and I are going to have this a lot! I bought crabmeat from a package by the meat section of the market instead of the can (it was actually cheaper). Everything else, we followed to the recipe and it was divine!
It was pretty good as written - although I thought it could have used some more mozzarella and a little more red pepper flakes. Thank you!
Great combination of ingredients! The only thing I changed was to use imitation crab meat instead of canned and a pre-made thin crust for my base. Will definitely be adding this to my weekly rotation.
KC* Crab Artichoke Appetizer Pizza
1 12" thin prepared pizza crust
14 oz. can water packed artichoke hearts
4 oz. lump or backfin crabmeat
2/3 cup grated parmesan
2/3 cup light mayo
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 cup pitted and sliced kalamata olives, drained well
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh red bell pepper
Prepare crust according to pkg directions. Put crust in oven and crisp until golden brown.
Meanwhile combine artichokes, crab, parmesan, mayo, garlic, salt and pepper. Spread mixture to edges of crust. Top with olives.
Bake 12-15 minutes until top is slightly browned and bubbling. Remove from oven and top with red bell pepper. Cut in small squares and serve warm with sauce of choice. It recommends remoulade sauce. 8 servings.
This was an interesting combination that I had not thought to use on a pizza myself. I used the ingredients listed, but used a little extra artichoke and eyeballed everything else.
