My husband LOVES making pizza – he grills it in the summer, bakes it in the winter, and comes up with a new flavor combo each time. In this monthly “guest post,” I’m going to sit back, relax, and maybe take the occasional photo while Jeff makes me a pizza and tells you about it. Here he is:
This month, Jeff’s guest pizza post has a secret. Shhhhhhh. This pizza is a complete Lori creation. In our town, there is this awesome family-owned bagel place called New York Bagel. They regularly get voted as making the best bagels in Metro Detroit and there is usually a line out the door – sometimes you can wait as long as 20 minutes for a bagel. It’s totally worth it. Lori’s favorite, by far, is the everything bagel with chive cream cheese and some lox. This bagel not only drove Lori to create everything seasoning mix for home use, but is the inspiration for this delicious pizza.
Most of ingredients for this pizza came from Door to Door Organics (find our full rundown of the service HERE). DTDO can always be counted on for a ton of delicious organic products. They have everything from fresh veggies (like the tomato and onion used here) to tasty herbs (like the dill and chives), to organic snacks (eaten while I assembled the pizza). The lox in this recipe is also from DTDO, and came from a company called Kaleb’s Katch, a Colorado-based company focused on sustainably-caught fish straight “from the fisherman to your table”.
Note: this is kind of a “cold pizza” right from the get-go. While the crust is baked in a hot oven, it’s topped with all cold ingredients and is not baked again, so it cools to room temperature quickly. This makes it a great meal for a hot day. It can also be prepared in advance, cut into even smaller pieces and served as a party appetizer!
