12" Pizza Pan



  • ½ cup Warm - not hot - Milk
  • 2 teaspoon Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Yeast
  • ½ cup All Purpose Flour
  • ½ cup Rye Flour
  • cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 teaspoon Caraway Seeds
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil


  • 6 oz Cream Cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoon Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Dill finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon Lemon zest
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • 4 oz Smoked Salmon
  • Red onion Thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoon Capers
  • 1-2 Green onions



  • Add honey to warm milk, stir till well blended. Add yeast and stir again. Allow to sit (somewhere warm!) for 5-10 minutes, or until very foamy.
  • In a mixing bowl or stand mixer, combine flours, caraway seeds, and salt. Add yeast mixture and oil, mix till well blended.
  • Dump dough out onto a floured surface, knead until soft and elastic, 5-10 minutes. Alternatively, mix in a stand mixer with a dough hook for 5-7 minutes - that’s how I do it!
  • Place dough in a greased bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and allow to rise for one hour, or until doubled in size. Punch dough down and allow to rise for another 45 minutes or so.
  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • Stretch or roll pizza dough out to a 12" round, allow to rest for a few minutes. Spray a 12" pizza pan with pan spray/
  • Transfer dough round to pizza pan, pressing up for form a bit of a crust. Prick several times - all over - with a fork.
  • Brush or spray dough with a little olive oil, bake for 13 minutes.


  • As the dough is baking, prepare the sauce:
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together softened cream cheese and milk until smooth and well combined.
  • Add dill and lemon zest, stir well to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Keep warm until crust is baked.

To Assemble:

  • Once dough is baked, top with warm cream cheese sauce, smoked salmon, red onion slices, capers, and sliced green onion.
  • Serve immediately!
