  • Island Pie:
  • 10 ounces pizza dough, rolled into a ball
  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 2 tablespoons grated Pecorino Romano
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 ounces Stock Island spiny lobster tail, poached and chopped
  • 4 ounces shrimp, chopped
  • 4 ounces squid, poached
  • 2 ounces clams, cooked
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling


Special equipment: a pizza stone; a pizza peel

For the pizza sauce: Work the tomatoes through a food mill into a large bowl. Mix in the oil, pepper and salt. Gently stir in the basil.

For the chimichurri: In the bowl of a food processor add the basil, oil, oregano, parsley, vinegar, lemon juice and garlic, and process until the mixture achieves a rustic, chunky texture. Season with salt and pepper.

For the pizza: Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 550 degrees F for at least 20 minutes.

Stretch the dough into a 10-inch round disk on a floured pizza peel. Spread 4 ounces of the pizza sauce evenly onto the dough and sprinkle the Pecorino Romano, garlic and oregano over the top. Dress with the lobster, shrimp, squid and clams and a drizzle of olive oil.

Slide the pizza from the peel onto the pizza stone and bake until bubbly and golden brown, 2 to 5 minutes. Top the cooked pizza with 2 ounces of the chimichurri, then slice and serve.
