lobster pizza

Is there anywhere in Los Angeles that serves pizza topped with lobster meat?

  1. I'm sure there is but I don't know where. I understand why you would want to know where to get one.

    The first and only time I had lobster pizza was at Val's Tavern in Rumson, NJ about ten years ago. Val's Tavern is an old school, old fashioned neighborhood bar and pizza parlor and when I saw it on the menu there I was shocked. I thought to myself "There's no way this can be any good". But I ordered one anyway and it was fantastic! Simply a plain mozzerella and tomato sauce pizza sprinkled generously with slipper lobster meat.

    1. Yes, and a lot closere than N.J., at:

      Berri's Pizza Cafe
      8412 W. 3rd St.
      (323) 852-0642

      Call & confirm they make it the right (your) way before you go.

        i seem to remember this pizza being described as a lobster sauce on pizza topped with shrimp. i guess i will call and ask them to be sure. thanks!

          Yes, the "Lobster Pizza" at Berri's is made with a lobster bisque. Not chunks of lobster.

          Maybe not what you are looking for necessarily, but the Red Lobster does offer a Lobster Pizza with lobster meat.

            RL's "Lobster" pizza is made with "Langostino Lobster" ~ which isn't really a lobster (see wiki links below). But I've had it before, and it could've fooled me for lobster meat (though doesn't taste particularly good overall.)

              Heck, I have a feeling ALL of the offerings at Red Lobster are of "Langostino" variety ...

              1. re: ipsedixit

                Hmm... they actually have changed their recipe on that one:

                "Lobster Pizza: A crisp thin-crust pizza topped with **Maine lobster** meat, melted mozzarella cheese, fresh tomatoes and sweet basil." from their Web site... and I swear it used to say Langostinos, perhaps they got too many feedback from irate foodies for being duped ;)

                --and this doesn't mean I'm eager to go back and try it though.

                  Aw, c'mon, take one for the team ...

                    Tried it once; never again. It was so bad I couldn't finish

                Like Ronald Reagan use to say in public "Trust, but Verify" when dealing with the Ruskies, but privately "did not Trust and triple verified", I took my own advice and called them (and yes the memory banks still have a few sparks of life left in them) and Berri's does have Lobster "Meat" on the pizza.
