Smoked salmon pizza is a uniquely New York-centric dish. Inspired by its flavors, Chef Elana has recreated it in this Encore-worthy dinner. Mimicking the flavors of an everything bagel with cream cheese and lox, she’s slathered pizza dough with creamy goat cheese and topped it with smoked salmon, capers, and tomatoes. Finished with lemony dill and parsley, this multifaceted dinner has become a fast favorite.

Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare ingredients

    Prepare ingredients

    Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove pizza dough from bag and let soften at room temperature. Place goat cheese in a medium bowl and let soften. Rinse all produce. Pick dill and parsley leaves, discarding stems. Halve tomatoes. Halve lemon. Peel onion, halve, and thinly slice 1 half. Combine sliced onion, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and ⅛ teaspoon salt in a small bowl and set aside (save remaining onion for another recipe). 

  2. Roll out pizza dough

    Roll out pizza dough

    Sprinkle flour onto a clean, dry surface, coating a rolling pin or your hands with a thin layer. Roll or stretch pizza dough into a rectangular shape, rotating frequently and working from center to edges, until dough is ¼-inch thick. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and rub with 1 teaspoon olive oil

  3. Assemble and bake pizza

    Assemble and bake pizza

    Add pizza dough to parchment, gently stretching to reach edges of baking sheet, and rub all over with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add shichimi togarashi (it's a bit spicy—skip or use half for less heat) to pouch with sesame seeds, shake to combine, and sprinkle in a 1-inch border around edges of dough. Scatter tomatoes and sliced onions inside border. Transfer to oven and bake until crust is crisp and slightly browned, 15-18 minutes.

  4. Whip goat cheese

    Whip goat cheese

    While pizza bakes, add ¼ cup heavy cream to bowl with goat cheese and whisk until smooth (use remaining cream to enrich scrambled eggs or a pasta sauce). Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired and set aside until Step 6.

  5. Make herb salad

    Make herb salad

    In a small bowl, combine dill, parsley, and juice of ½ lemon and toss to coat (use remaining lemon to brighten a glass of water). Season with ⅛ teaspoon salt

  6. Finish and plate smoked salmon pizza

    Finish and plate smoked salmon pizza

    Remove pizza from oven and dollop over whipped goat cheese. Tear smoked salmon into large pieces and arrange on top, then scatter over capers and herb salad. Cut into slices and dig in!
