smoked salmon pizza

We had smoked salmon pizza last night for dinner.  The combination of smoked salmon, red onion, capers, sour cream, lemon juice, rocket and basil is heavenly to me and works particularly well on a pizza.
I used the already made 'turkish' pizza bases.  I heat one side of the base in a cast iron pan on the hob until it just starts to colour and then I turn it over.  I then put the homemade sweet tomato sauce down, then on goes the smoked salmon ( a little goes a long way), red onion capers and a very light sprinkling of grated mozerella cheese.
Put the cast iron pan with the pizza in it, in a pre heated 220 C oven for about 5-7 mins until it is nicely golden.
When it is done spoon on some sour cream, add the rocket, basil, S & P, a squeeze of lemon and a drizzle of olive oil.  Slice and eat.


  1. Had a pizza night with friends and made both your pizza's - just so I could comment! Salmon one was a hit especially with the sour cream.

  2. Cool. Well done Tim for making your own bases. I haven,t had a lot of success. Maybe I could try your recipe. Do you use a pizza stone?
