I used the items in the picture to make this pizza, However, after reading the ingredients in the Alfredo Sauce, I choose not to use the Parmesan Cheese, since it was the second ingredient in the Alfredo Sauce.

The dough was made with Spaten Oktoberfest Beer.  It pressed out very nice.

I heated the Alfredo Sauce in a smaller bowl so that I could spread the sauce  easier. Then,  I spread it over the pizza dough.

Next, I added chopped Garlic on the pizza for a little more flavor.

Then added the Langastino Lobster Tails. I made sure that they were place flat on the pizza so that they could be covered easier by cheese.

I was wondering what the pizza would be like if I did used same above ingredients, but replaced the Alfredo with my Red Pizza sauce? Can Langostino Lobster Tails work in a Red Sauce instead of a White/Alfredo sauce or am I wasting precious sea food? I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

PS
maybe i should use it on my white garlic pizza which ues a EVOO covered with cheese .

Visited a small independent Micro Brewery in town.  It was fun to watch them brewing beer, so i thought I would try some in my pizza dough.

I purchased a Hefeweizen from them that was clearer than most Hefeweizens that i have tried. But the Brew master explained that it didn't have to be cloudy to be a good Hefeweizen.

I made a total of six dough balls that I gave a two day cold rise in the fridge. I then packed in in a cooler, on ice, for a 3 hour trip to a friend's house for making pizza. This worked out very well. Ice in the cooler, covered by a piece of cardboard, set the dough balls on top of the cardboard, then seal the cooler. It traveled very well.

The dough made with the Local Brewers Hefeweizen pressed out very nicely and made a great tasting pizza.  This beer was on tap only.

JD,

I hope the word Micro Brewery is the correct way to describe this place. ??? It has beer for sale by the growler and personal brewing stations. With all the beers that I have used and posted on this thread,  I wanted to make sure that people didn't pass up some of the small breweries that are right in their own neighborhood, just because they are not well known. There are many of them out there that make some fantastic beers which can be used for dough making as well.
