I hope you guys are enjoying this long weekend as much as we are. It was actually close to Summer weather here yesterday, and today looks like it’s shaping up to be another beauty. I’m so excited to get out there and play!
What are y’all up to?
That being said, I hope you’ll understand why today I’m getting straight to the point – Loaded Everything Bagel & Lox Pizza!!! It’s all the goodness of an everything bagel with lox, but in pizza form. Do I need to say more?!
This pizza is so simple to put together, and it’s a lot more fun and creative than just throwing some bagels and cream cheese on the table for your guests. Plus, it’s mega pretty! Even my hangry boyfriend stopped to admire it’s good looks before tearing it apart!
Ya know what we call a pizza that’s pretty, easy, and brunchalicious? A total WINNER!
Happy weekend, friendz! xo
Loaded Lox Breakfast Pizza – Baker by Nature
Serves 4 – 6
1 pizza dough
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons Jane’s crazy mixed up seasoning – Garlic (if you can find this, use onion flakes, garlic flakes, and kosher salt)
1/2 tablespoon sesame seeds
(1) 8 oz package cream, at room temperature
2 -4 tablespoons scallions (depending on how scallion-y you want your cream cheese)
(1) 4 oz package smoked salmon
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onions
1 large ripe tomato, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons capers
Preheat oven to 450 degrees (F). Lightly oil pizza pan, and roll dough out to desired shape. Slather about 1 tablespoon of oil on top of the dough, then sprinkle with the garlic seasoning and sesame seeds. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until the crust is gorgeously golden and bubbling.
While the crust is baking, make your scallion cream cheese! In a the body of a blender or stand mixer beat cream cheese until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add scallions and beat for another minute or so. That’s it!
Cool cooked pizza dough for at least 5 minutes, then spread the scallion cream cheese evenly on top, leaving a one inch boarder as the crust. Layer the smoked salmon evenly around the pizza, then add the tomatoes, onions, and capers. Cut into pieces, and serve at once! Keep pizza chilled if not serving right away.
*We had leftovers and saved a few slices of this pizza for a “next day snack”; it was still delicious. That being said, I wouldn’t keep this pizza more than two days as the nature of smoked salmon can be fickle.
