Ok, so I admit that making homemade pizza may not be that creative of a dish for some, but what other dish can be made as versatile as homemade pizza? This version of Homemade Finnish Seafood Pizza is certain to please all you seafood lovers out there! I love tuna, so I definitely still love it on a pizza. Be sure to customize your pizza to your tastes, because after all, you are the one eating it!
Pizza is one of my favorite dishes to make and eat. A pizza also contains many food groups all in one, so you don’t have to worry about making several things in several different pots and pans. You just load up your pizza, add the different ingredients and layers, and you are all set!
This Homemade Finnish Pizza combines traditional Finnish seafood with the American-style pizza. When I lived in Finland, they sold "Seafood Pizza" as one of the main frozen varieties of pizza in the stores. Make your own at home tonight!
