Recipe of the Week - Smoked Salmon Pizza

Recipe of the Week – September 24th 2008
Most of the Smoked Salmon Pizza Recipes you find feature variations of "Lox & Bagels". They typically replace the bagel with a pizza crust, then cream cheese, lox and capers.... Our smoked salmon pizza recipe features Northwest Style Hot Smoked Salmon with it's deep alder smoked flavor and the higher oil content of Wild Pacific Salmon. You can bake the pizza or grill on the BBQ. We have been making these pizzas in our homes for some time, as a result, there are several pizza dough & cheese variations. You can use thick or thin crust, traditional white, wheat or gluten free dough, make the bigger or smaller. Two popular sizes are a 6 inch appetizer style thin crust pizza and an 8 inch individual size with thick crust. Our recomendation on the dough: See if you can buy a pizza dough ball from your local pizzeria. Usually this will be enough for two 8 inch or four 6 inch pizzas. We will assume you use this method for "making" the dough.

Ingredients:
For the Topping:
2-4oz Wild Ocean Seafoods Smoked Salmon Bagel Toppers or Smoked King Salmon Strips
2-4oz Crumbled Goat Cheese (use less cheese than smoked salmon)
1/2 Medium Maui or Walla Walla (Sweet) Onion or 2-3 Large Shallots
1 Tbsp Oils of Aloha Macadamia Oil
1 Small bunch of Fresh Cilantro

For the Dough:
1 Dough Ball from you local pizzeria, your home made dough, or a frozen pizza crust

Prep: (Mise en place)
Thaw the Smoked Salmon in the refrigerator overnight or run under cold water in their vacuum bags to thaw.
Pre-Heat Grill or Oven.
Cut the dough ball in half (8in pizzas) or quarters (6in pizzas).
Roll the dough out to your chozen size and thickness.
Pre-Bake the rolled pizza crust for 8-10 minutes in the oven @ 400F, remove & cool.
Slice the Onion or Shallots thinly, then caramelize in a saute pan, remove from heat to a bowl.
Remove the smoked salmon from the vacuum package, gently peel off the skin & discard.
Flake the Smoked Salmon into a bowl.
Chop Cilantro leaves and set aside.
Crumble the goat cheese into a small crumble.

Cooking:
Place the caramelized onions or shallots on the pizza crust
Spinkle the Smoked Salmon over the pizza crust & caramelized onions or shallots
Sprinke the goat cheese lightly over the Smoked Salmon
Lightly sprinkle the shopped cilantro over the goat cheese
Drizzle the Macadamia Oil lightly over the pizza
Place in the Pre-Heated Oven or BBQ Grill. Figure 10-14 minutes.
Remove & let stand for 3-5 minutes before slicing

Thanks for sharing this recipe it's definitely a really good reward for my brother who got his Food Safety Training last week. But still work on the dough first. I'm not really the cook-type but I'd like to do something special for him.
