Smoked Salmon Flatbread Pizza
One of the things I’m discovering about working from home is how nice it is to take a break and pop into my own kitchen to make my lunch. All the ingredients I may want are there. I don’t have to prep something at 6:30am. If I decide on something different or have a craving for something, it’s easy to change my mind. I can also take my lunch on the deck on nice days and enjoy fresh air while recharging for the afternoon tasks.
As a result I’ve been on the search for cool, easy to prepare, and tasty meals that may not have been considered for a lunchbox meal when I was working in an office away from home. Smoked Salmon Flatbread Pizzas by Three Many Cooks absolutely fit the bill. Even though this recipe is pricier than I would normally invest in, it was well worth the extra money. And because I prepared the flatbread only for myself (Dylan generally doesn’t care for seafood), I’ve been able to make the ingredients work for other meals as well. Smokey, salty, lemony, creamy… The smoked salmon flatbread with a lovely blend of flavors in the cream cheese, hit all the notes for me.
The recipe calls for using naan as the base for these flatbreads, which I think would be perfect. I’m in love with a gluten free pizza crust from a local bakery, so I used it instead. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. Be sure to enjoy this with a cold glass of sparkling water and a squeeze of lemon to help cut the fattiness and richness of the cream cheese and smoked salmon. Or if serving this with a brunch, prosecco would be lovely. And we all know how much I love a good brunch. Leftover cream cheese spread is good on crackers for an afternoon snack. Extra smoked salmon would be nice on a personal charcuterie board for lunch another day.
