Smoked Salmon Breakfast Pizza
Eggs and smoked salmon on a cheese pizza? Sounds like an excellent breakfast to us. If only we could get the crust to crisp and the eggs to cooperate.
Why This Recipe Works
Smoked Salmon Breakfast Pizza is an easy, unexpected crowd favorite for a Sunday brunch, but it comes with a challenge: achieving a crisp, golden-brown crust without overcooking the eggs. To get there, we press room-temperature dough into a lightly oiled sheet pan and parbake it for 5 minutes to give the crust a head start before we add the toppings. The surprising addition of cottage cheese tethers all the ingredients together with a silky creaminess. After the pizza cools, we top it with the classic, elegant combination of piquant capers, crisp red onion, and rich smoked salmon and finish it with sour cream, dill, and chives.
