OK – so, by now, you might have noticed a conspicuous recurrence of certain ingredients in my posts.  This is not evidence that I live entirely on dough of some sort & smoked salmon but, rather, that some ingredients come in quantities larger than one recipe requires.  I loathe wasting food and smoked salmon, in particular, is kind of expensive.  I hate resorting to feeding it to my dogs (though I will if I have to).   This recipe appears here now because I had leftover salmon (still!) and pizza dough.  The Smoked Salmon Spaghetti ( happened because I had salmon & leftover half & half from my Carrot-Pumpkin Lavender Soup (  I considered staggering the posts that used similar ingredients – for the sake of diversity – but then I thought – other people out there probably want some ideas on how to use the extras they have from making stuff posted here.  So – that is what I am doing.  I am giving you yet another way to use that dough & smoked salmon.  I don’t think I will be buying smoked salmon again for a while.  I fear my skin is developing a strangely pink tone – like a flamingo from its diet of shrimp.


Brunch or Breakfast Pizza

1/4 – 1/3 prepared pizza dough ( or your favorite dough

Cream Cheese

Smoked Salmon

Capers – or caper berries

Tomatoes – diced

Cucumbers – sliced thinly

Red Onion – sliced paper thin or diced fine

Fresh Dill – chopped


fresh ground pepper

Put your pizza dough on an oiled sheet.  Score it several times as it will bubble up in your oven without the benefit of heavy toppings upon it.  Cook your naked pizza dough at 425 degrees or so until it is just done.  Spread a thin layer of cream cheese upon it while it is hot.  Then – put the remaining ingredients on it in the quantity & pattern that pleases you.  Very simple.  Pop a bottle of champagne & you are in for a fine morning!

If pizza dough is not handy, tear up some lavosh or use the old standby – bagels.  But the pizza dough presentation is far more special.
