Dough (see note)
- 360 mL (1½ cups) warm water
- 20 mL (4 tsp) sugar
- 15 mL (1 tbsp) active dry yeast
- 60 mL (4 tbsp) olive oil
- 10 mL (2 tsp) sea salt
- 875 mL (3½ cups) all-purpose flour
- 125 mL (1/2 cup) Neilson sour cream
- 125 mL (1/2 cup) Saputo Mozzarellissima shredded cheese
- 125 g (1/4 lbs) smoked salmon, sliced
- 125 mL (1/2 cup) Nordic shrimp, defrosted
- 1 small red onion, sliced into fine rings
- 30 mL (2 tbsp) capers
- 4 thin lemon slices
- Fresh-ground pepper
For the dough
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the water and sugar. Sprinkle yeast on the surface of the water and let rest for 5 minutes without stirring. Add olive oil and sea salt and stir with a fork. Add 500 mL (2 cups) of flour and stir with a fork until the flour is fully incorporated and the mixture becomes sticky. Add an additional 250 mL (1 cup) of flour and knead to incorporate. Transfer the dough to a work surface floured with the remaining 120 mL (1/2 cup) of flour. Knead for 5-7 minutes, or until the flour is incorporated and the dough is smooth and supple. Transfer the dough to a large oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rest for 90 minutes at room temperature. Divide the dough into 4 balls.
For the pizza
- Preheat oven to 230 °C (450 °F) with the rack in the top position.
- Roll out a ball of dough into a 40-cm circle. Spread the Neilson sour cream over the dough. Cover with Saputo Mozzarellissima cheese. Top with smoked salmon, Nordic shrimp, onions, capers and lemon slices. Add a generous sprinkling of pepper.
- Bake for 20 minutes and serve immediately.
