Smoked Salmon, Mascarpone and Leek Pizza

Click here for the Recipe of the day

Ingredients:
• Fresh pizza dough (I buy mine at an Italian market, or make it yourself)
• 1 large leek, washed and green portions chopped
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• 175 g mascarpone cheese (use about 3/4 of container)
• 150 g package of frozen sliced wild smoked salmon, thawed
• Salt and pepper

Method:
Using 1 tbsp oil, sauté leeks in frying pan until soft. Set aside. Roll out dough onto pizza pan. Using remaining oil, coat surface of dough.

Cover dough with saut­éed leeks. Then place smoked salmon on top of leeks. I like to slightly overlap the triangular pieces of salmon so it looks like a pinwheel. In the areas not covered by the salmon, using a table­spoon, add toonie-sized dollops of mascarpone cheese. Season with salt and pepp­er.

Bake at 350 F until crust is cooked and cheese is melted. Enjoy with a green salad and a glass of white wine.
