Smoked Salmon Flatbread Pizza
Chive Blossoms, Chives, Fried Capers
Dill, Lemon, Maui Onion, Horseradish Cream Cheese
Smoked salmon pizza was one of a trio of flatbreads we served for lunch aboard Oasis on a recent cruise over to Two Harbors at Catalina Island. Lunch on the aft deck could not have been more delightful – with perfect weather, breathtaking scenery, and wonderful company.
Our three light and crispy flatbread pizzas (smoked salmon, roasted brussels sprouts, and a version of vegetable with arugula) were accompanied by a lively chopped Israeli salad and refreshingly cool sangria. Flatbread pizzas make for a super-satisfying lunch on board. They are fast and easy to cook in the galley, and they’re not as filling as traditional pizza – so after lunch we were buoyant and ready for a fabulous 6 mile hike around the island.
Smoked Salmon Pizza Recipe
Brush both sides of lavash flatbread with olive oil. Bake in a 400°F oven until flatbread becomes a bit crispy, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
Rinse and drain capers. Dry well with paper towels. Heat olive oil in a small sauce pan. Add capers and fry about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
Combine whipped cream cheese with grated horseradish. Spread cream cheese mixture over the flatbread. Top with sliced smoked salmon.
Top salmon with fried capers, thinly sliced maui onion, finely chopped chives and snipped dill.
Rinse the chive blossom in cool water. Separate the tiny florets from the cluster. Sprinkle over the top of the pizza. Serve pizza with lemon.

An upscale version of lox and bagels! Looks lovely and I’m sure it tastes even better.
Hi Frank – I’m not sure if it tastes better – we do adore lox and bagels – but flatbread is great too for a light lunch or elegant appetizer.
While I don’t care for smoked salmon, my husband absolutely adores it as well as most of our friends so I can see this being served with cocktails before dinner. Not only will they think it is delicious, I know I’ll be serving a pretty dish. Now if only I could serve it on an aft deck while cruising.
Hi Karen – it does make an elegant appetizer. Folks who like smoked salmon adore this…and it is light and thin and lower carb. Try with Champagne. Not just reserved for aft deck parties 🙂
