Salmon, Avo and Creme Fraiche Pizza

Quick and Easy Meals by iSa
Type: Contemporary
Servings: 2 (4 Slices per person)

  • 100 gr Smoked Salmon Ribbons
  • 1/2 avocado
  • Creme Fraiche
  • Fresh Chives
  • Fresh Italian Seasoning herbs
  • 150 gr Grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • 3 Tbs Napolitano Sauce
  • 1 Quality Pizza Base 
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Freshly ground black pepper

I'm not going to pretend that I know how to make the dough for the pizza base, because I don't. I'll leave that to the experts and rather concentrate in layering with some style and taste some top notch ingredients on top of this base for the most heavenly pizza. We have several preferences in toppings and this is one of our favorites, you can't go wrong with this mix, it's just meant to come together!

Preheat the oven at around 300 degrees F. Prepare the Pizza pan by sprinkling it with some Olive oil, then place the Pizza Base on top. Spoon in the Napolitano sauce, you can make it at home by simmering some onions (or shallots), fresh garlic, fresh Basil, Oregano and Tomatoes and seasoning it with some salt, sugar and pepper. Alternatively, you can do what I do when I'm tired and in search for a quick but good substitute, I go to Woolies and seek out the Herb and Tomato Pasta Sauce - good and effortless. Spread around 3 tbs of the sauce onto the base and sprinkle with some chopped fresh italian herbs (Basil, Oregano and Parsley) and some powdered Cayenne pepper, for a bit of a kick. Layer the cheese on top, followed by he chives and stick into the oven. leave for around 8 min and check if its all melted and has started to bubble, then turn on the grill and allow it to brown the top of the pizza for about 5 min, keep an eye on it though because it can quickly turn a nicely golden pizza, into a charcoal. 

Bring out the pizza and cut into 8 slices. After this proceed to place the Salmon ribbons on top of the slices by splitting them as equally as possible in a presentable manner. Then slice the avocado and decorate with one portion for each slice, topping up with a dollop of creme fraiche and a sprinkle of Cayenne Pepper (if you want to make it extra special, you can even top it with some Black caviar). Sprinkle with Parmesan or Pecorino for serving, and enjoy!!!!!!!
