Pizza Day #11: Smoked Salmon and Avocado Grilled Cheese Pizza
Fresh smoked salmon slices drizzled with a little lemon juice.
A wholemeal/wholewheat pizza base or a flour tortilla….already made and perfect for throwing whatever toppings your heart desires…drizzled with a little garlic olive oil.
The perfect cream cheese mixture with garlic and dill.
Spread onto this beautiful pizza base.
Topped with onion rings and cheese.
And finally topped with the smoked salmon, avocado and fresh rocket/arugula leaves.
With a shake or 7 of lemon pepper and a drizzle of lemon juice, this pizza went like crazy.
At this point…you can serve how it is….with fresh ingredients and beautiful flavours…or!
Sprinkle a little extra cheese over the top and place back into the oven for extra melty cheese and warmed through avocado and salmon. The choice is yours.
Because then…this happens.
