Directions

Preparation time: 40 minutes

Serves: 4

Béchamel Sauce

  1. Melt butter in a sauce pot on low to medium heat. Whisk in flour and leave “blonde” – do not let it turn brown.
  2. Add onion and milk, then salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Gently simmer for ten minutes. Fold in zest of lemon.
  4. Remove from heat when sauce is thickened.

Potato Foam

  1. Boil 1 roughly chopped potato and two eggs for 20 minutes.
  2. Strain, reserve the water (around 250 ml).
  3. Mix water with coffee cream.
  4. Using either a steamer or an immersion blender, mix air into the liquid. This is done by just barely submerging the end of the device into the liquid and allowing it to froth and foam (the foam will expand to two or three times its size).
  5. Once whipped, spoon foam onto the finished pizza.

Pizza

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Stretch dough into a 12-inch round on a pizza pan.
  3. Spread béchamel sauce evenly over dough using the back of a large spoon.
  4. Add mozzarella and lobster.
  5. Bake 10-12 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Finish with broiler if necessary.
  6. Once removed from oven, cut and garnish with dulse, then foam and green onion.
