Now how many of you eat breakfast pizza? How many of you eat it with smoked salmon on top? Not many of us I would imagine. In fact I bet most of us wouldn't even think about putting salmon on pizza at all. Now for me... I love a thick salmon steak that's grilled with a baked potato smothered in butter and sour cream. Add fresh crusty bread and you have one of my favorite meals. Well last night we used up the last of the gas in our grill by grilling 3 salmon steaks. 2 for supper and 1 to put aside for breakfast this morning. I really wanted to give this recipe a try.
Happily the pizza turned out as pretty as the pillsbury picture. I was so surprised at how tasty it was. I have to tell you to.... I was "thrilled" about using the chives-and-onion cream cheese. Wow! Where have I been?? I can't tell you the ideas racing through my head on ways to use spreads now. LOL. I think next time I'll use a bit more than the recipe called for. Anyway, I can see why this pizza was named "brunch pizza". It would really be good served at a brunch. What do ya'll think?
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
4 green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)
1/4 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 package (4 oz) smoked salmon, flaked
1/2 cup chives-and-onion cream cheese (from 8-oz container)
1. Heat oven to 425°F. Grease 12-inch pizza pan or 13x9-inch pan. Unroll dough; place in pan. Starting at center, press out dough with hands. Bake 6 to 7 minutes or until crust begins to brown.
2. Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add bell pepper and onions; cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until tender.
3. In medium bowl, beat eggs, milk and pepper. Add egg mixture to skillet. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked but still moist. Fold in salmon. Remove from heat.
4. Spread cream cheese evenly over crust. Spoon cooked egg mixture over cream cheese.
5. Bake 9 to 12 minutes longer or until toppings are hot and crust is deep golden brown. If desired, garnish with additional green onions.
