Smoked Salmon Pizza
Pretty and easy. It also travels well.
What is it with me? I am always transporting food.
I love it.
This is the simple recipe you will make over and over again.
One pound of pizza dough.
salt and pepper
12 ounces of good thin sliced smoked salmon
8 tablespoons garlic and herb pub cheese.
1/2 thin sliced red onion
1/2 thin sliced cucumber
5 tablespoons of capers
10 to 12 grape tomatoes, sliced in half
2 handfuls of arugula. More if you like it.
Preheat the oven to 450. The oven has to be very hot.
Grease the cookie sheet with the Crisco. A very thin layer.
Stretch out the dough so it touches the ends of the pan.
Sprinkle with maybe a teaspoon of olive oil.
Spread over the dough
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake for about 15 minutes on the bottom shelf in the oven.
It may need more time because you want a nice crisp bottom.
Let the dough cool a little.
Spread with the garlic and herb cheese
Spread the salmon evenly on the dough
Add the cucumbers, onion, tomatoes, capers and arugula.
Sprinkle with olive oil, salt and black pepper.
Fabulous appetizer. I make it for breakfast.
If you grill the dough it is even better but it is too cold and wet to go outside now.
Always a big hit and so good.
