Smoked Salmon & Urenika Potato Pizza

Usually I hear smoked salmon on a sandwich but this one has made it through the interesting list. From Bunny Eats Design, here's a recipe that will delight most of us pizza lovers! 

1 large pizza base
2-4 Urenika potatoes (dependent on size)
50 grams (2oz) smoked salmon
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 cup grated cheese
Fresh thyme
1 lemon

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C / 390°F.
  2. Spread sour cream on pizza base and top with half of the grated cheese.
  3. Scrub and dry potatoes, peel them if you prefer and cut them as thin as you can with a with a sharp knife. If using hot smoked salmon, gently flake apart salmon, if using cold smoked salmon, chop into bite sized pieces.
  4. Arrange potato slices and smoked salmon onto of pizza. Top with the rest of the cheese and bake for 15 minutes until potatoes are cooked, cheese is golden and pizza base is cooked through.
  5. Gather fresh thyme and cut some thin lemon slices. Top pizza with lemon slices and thyme and bake for a further 5 minutes. A lazy cook could skip this part by adding all the ingredients in at the start but I find the fresh herbs get a bit *too* done.
  6. Squeeze lemon juice over pizza or serve with lemon wedges.
  7. Variations and substitutions to try:
  8. Sweet potato instead of potato
  9. Cream cheese instead of sour cream
  10. Capers instead of lemon
  11. Dill instead of thyme
  12. Smoked white fish instead of smoked salmon
  13. Smoked mussels or smoked oysters instead of smoked salmon
