Smoked Salmon Pizza

I think this is definitely a breakfast pizza ... best served with a mimosa or two.


Actually, lets take out the orange juice and just have smoked salmon pizza and champagne for breakfast.

It's your day off, on a long weekend. Who cares if it's before 12 noon?


Food blogger "KEcker" enjoyed her Wolfgang Puck inspired salmon pie on the beach in Los Angles, while watching the sunset with caipirinhas, a Brazilian cocktail, and retro clam dip.

Kind of makes it seem tame to just enjoy yours on the back porch at 10am with some champagne. See, no biggie.

Shopping List
1 store-bought partially baked extra thin pizza crust
Extra-virgin olive oil
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1 finely sliced shallot
Capers
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
3/4 lb. Sliced smoked salmon

Preheat the oven to 450°. Drizzle the crust with olive oil, arrange the shallots evenly on top and season with salt and pepper and dill. Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

Spread the room temperature cream cheese on top of the crust then arrange the salmon pieces on top evenly. Sprinkle on your capers and more dill

Serve in wedges or squares.

  17. I want this now. It's been so warm here and right now I can't think of anything better than some cold, smoked salmon on a warm bed of crispy pizza crust smothered in cream cheese. Well, maybe ice cream. Actually no.
