Pizza Friday extended into Saturday this week. I made pizza on Friday but only a cheese pizza and a sausage pizza. Martin wasn’t able to come on Friday and the Alaska pizza was one he really wanted to try. Alaska was a Salmon pizza. The toppings for Alaska were tomatoes, green pepper, red onion, salmon and mozzarella. I used the New York Thin Crust pizza recipe. This time instead of dividing the dough evenly, I divided in thirds. This made about a 12″ pizza which is the perfect size for my stones. Not much in leftovers though! 😦
When I read the description of this pizza it didn’t say anything about a sauce. I ended up using a mix of olive oil, juice from a fresh lemon and 1 clove of minced garlic. I let that set on the counter while I prepared the toppings for the pizza. I then coated the entire dough with the olive oil mix, then added mozzarella cheese. I topped the cheese with tomatoes, green pepper, red onion and a 1/4 pound thinly sliced salmon.
Honestly, I did not think this combination sounded enticing at all! Neither Kyle or myself are seafood people. Kent opted out last night. Martin brought a long time friend, Brenda over with him. Brenda has been to many food festivities at our home. So, let the taste testing begin! I always taste the pizzas. Kyle actually had a piece and we were both pleasantly surprised. Martin(4pieces) and Brenda (2 pieces) loved it! He took 2 pieces home for Jordan. End result; this was a success. I will definitely make this one again. Next time Kent and Rachel will have to try it. 🙂
