Everything Lox Pizza.JPG

This is a combination of two of New York’ City’s best dishes; pizza and everything bagels with lox. This recipe draws inspiration from the amazing caper cream cheese at my favorite place on earth; The Surfcomber in Miami. This is a fun and easy way to enjoy the best of both worlds.

Serves 4.


·      1 package store bought pizza dough

1.     Preheat oven 425°F.

2.     Remove pizza dough from bag and let soften at room temperature.

3.     Place cream cheese in a bowl and let soften.

5.     Brush dough with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle Everything Bagel Seasoning around the edge, to create a one-inch border.
