Following the Thrillist recipe for a lox bagel pizza, the food blog Shutterbean upped the ante with her version of the bagel-themed pie. Blogger Tracy Benjamin took the breakfast pizza to new heights by introducing cucumber and a flavored homemade crust into the equation.
With a layer of red onion and a schmear of dill cream cheese, the lox bagel pizza features additional dill plus capers, cucumbers and slices of smoked salmon on top. This dish is best suited for weekend brunch or even a weeknight dinner. Made from scratch, the crust is inspired by the classic everything bagel. It includes onion powder, sesame seeds and poppy seeds. Creme fraiche is used for the cream cheese-mimicking schmear while the cucumber makes the meal extra refreshing.
