Where can I find the best shrimp scampi pizza or even a clam pizza?

My current favorite for shrimp scampi pizza is Artu in the north end. Crust is perfectly thin, scampi has plenty of garlic with just the right amount of cheese and the shrimp is never over overcooked. More recently I tried one at the Harp & Bard in Dorchester which was pretty much a disaster. Nice scampi sauce with a touch of lemon but to say they were cheap with the shrimp would be a huge understatement. There was literally just one piece of a shrimp on each slice never again. So, does anyone have any other suggestions? As much as I love Artu I really do like to try new places. Also open for places with clam pizza as I don't see them on the menu very often. Cafe Portobello in South Boston has a decent seafood pizza but haven't been there in awhile.

      Figs no longer does a clam pizza, sorry to say. They do a rock shrimp pie though. And Upper Crust does clam - and I think they do shrimp too.

    2. Classic Pizza in Malden. Thin crust, with a slightly sweet dough, tons of garlic, cheese and shrimp.

      1. Clam and bacon pizza at Coppa is bound to be good.

          I had the clam and bacon pizza at Coppa last night and I am sorry to say it was not great, mainly because the clam was totally drowned out by the cheese, bacon and onion. To be honest, I only could identify one tiny bite of clam in my half of the pie.
