Seafood pizza is not-so-unusual fare in Europe. (At least in this reporter’s recollection from a French college cafeteria, one often-served specimen was a thin-crust round with marinara and baby octopus on top.) The Seafood Elite is a similar idea but Americanized all the way — it’s fettuccine alfredo with shrimp, but on crust instead of noodles, and with mozzarella, red onions and mushrooms.
