Howdy!
Welcome to D.C.!
Seafood pizza ain't hard to manage.
Cook the pizza til it's nearly done and add your seafood near the end.
We love that kinda stuff here at Casa de Hoot.

One characteristic of pretzels is the baking soda flavor that permeates the bread.

If I recall, pretzels are made with a combination of bread, and all purpose flour. This gives them more chewey goodness, but keeps them tender enough to eat easily. The yeast dough is made and set aside while a solution of baking soda and water is made. The dough is cut into pieces, then rolled to the size of a pencil. They are placed into the soda water, then placed onto parchment paper lined baking sheets and allowed to rise. Then they are baked.

You may be able to achieve that flavor with your pizza dough by creating the crust, brushing with baking soda water, then blind baking until lightly browned. Then top with everything you want on your pizza, and bake until everything is piping hot, and the crust is golden brown.

Hope this helps.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

CraigC, you're crass! What's wrong with me offering my opinion on what we like here?

A daughter likes barbequed chicken pizza, wouldn't touch that either.

Have it your way but we like pizza the way I mentioned. Pizza is Italian...and what do Italians like? Italian pizza.

If you're putting seafood on it, use an Alfredo sauce, and call it a flat bread. It's no longer pizza.

As my brother's only brother use to say, the only bad pizza is the one you don't eat

Seriously, I will not even start to talk about the kind of stuff we've been trying on pizza here. I mean, here in Italy. By the way, I don't think that pizza is considered an Italian specialty anymore, it has gained a global status, sorry for my purist friends in Napoli...
IMHO, as long as you prepare some pizza that you like, that's good enough. Just don't pretend everyone else will like it too.

Translated from Italian "pizza = pie" Would you say only apples belong in a pie? That would leave out a whole bunch of other good pies we all have come to love. And who would make the rules of what constitutes a pie? The only person I know of who ever made a definitive answer of a certain dish was Julia Child. She stated that if a sauce is cooked with meat, then it is gravy. If it is cooked without meat, then it is a sauce. Other than that I know of no rules that determine what goes into a food an individual might like or want to experiment with.
