Wolfgang Puck + Trader Joe’s (Smoked Salmon Pizza Recipe Hack!)
I'm so excited to start this new series making famous/signature restaurant dishes in the home kitchen, and immediately I knew I had to start with Wolfgang Puck's Signature Smoked Salmon Pizza.
This copycat recipe uses only ingredients from Trader Joe's. (Plus salmon roe that I couldn't help garnish on top!)
The hack to make this famous pizza from Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills is with a Trader Joe's shopping haul. This iconic pizza has been enjoyed by celebrities at The Oscars, and now it's easy to make and enjoy at home!
Your Trader Joe's Shopping List Should Include:
-`1 Pizza Dough
-6 oz Smoked Salmon
-7.5 oz Crème Fraîche
-Salt & Pepper for taste
**** Salmon Roe (Not found at Trader Joe's)
Remove pizza dough from plastic wrap and set aside for 30 minutes.
Begin prepping your Dill Crème Fraîche Combine 7.5 oz Crème Fraîche (full tub), 2 tbsp minced dill, 1 tbsp minced shallot, juice from 1/2 of a lemon, and salt & pepper to taste. Stir together and chill until use.
Preheat oven to 475.
On a lightly floured surface , stretch or roll out the dough into an 8-inch circle.
Brush the center with olive oil (or garlic oil.)
***Wolfgang puck likes to layer thin chopped onions on the dough, but i'm not into that so I left it off this recipe.
Slide your dough onto hot pizza stone and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. You want edges golden brown.
While pizza is cooking, prep your chives (slice thin for a garnish.)
Remove pizza from oven and get ready to add all of the goodies! Spread Dill Crème Fraîche, place salmon evenly, sprinkle chopped chives, and if you have it place your salmon roe (caviar if you are fancy) on top.
Cut, enjoy, pretend you are an Oscar winner!
