Seared Tuna and Spring Greens Pizza with Ginger-Lime Dressing

Yield Makes 4 servings
Allow time for dressing to chill before preparing the tuna.


  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • 1 (8-ounce) tuna fillet (1 inch thick)
  • 1 (14-ounce) package prebaked Italian pizza crust
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 cups spring lettuce mix
  • Ginger-Lime Dressing

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a zip-top bag. Add tuna. Seal bag; marinate in refrigerator 20 minutes, turning occasionally.

  2. Bake pizza crust at 450º for 6 minutes or until crisp.

  3. Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Remove tuna from marinade, discarding marinade. Sprinkle tuna with pepper; sear in hot oil 2 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Remove tuna from skillet, and let stand 5 minutes. Cut tuna into thin slices.

  4. Place lettuce in a medium bowl; drizzle with 1/3 cup Ginger-Lime Dressing, tossing well. Spoon lettuce mixture over pizza crust, and top with tuna slices. Cut into wedges; serve immediately with additional Ginger-Lime Dressing, if desired.
