Simple Cold Salmon and Caper Pizza

"This is a cold pizza made with salmon, cream cheese, mayo, dill, ranch dressing mix and capers. It's very simple and easy to make. The hardest part is baking the crust! I came up with this after trying a veggie pizza recipe that I really loved. This is a regular at family gatherings. Hope you enjoy."

  1. I made this exactly as directed except I cut the recipe in half (very easy to do). It was so rich and exquisite that I cannot understand how it took almost four years to finally get a review. Very easy recipe with interesting ingredients. <br/><br/>This was a mini adventure for me. I had never tried capers before. They are somewhat like little olives. I bought some Chicken of the Sea smoked salmon that is sold in a 3 oz. vacuum pack by the tuna in our Walmart. God only knows how old the dill weed was that I got out of our spice cabinet, but I used it. <br/><br/>This was an excellent and satisfying recipe for the salmon craze I have been going through lately. This would make a fancy appetizer at a party or pot luck.


I was born, raised, and still live out in the country by Oshkosh, WI. Yes, Oshkosh B'Gosh and also home of the EAA AirVenture. You can see one of the runways from our backyard. Mother of a one year old boy, three cats, one dog, and several fresh and salt water fish (including seahorses). Very happily married for two years. I love to cook for others and myself, crochet, knit, having campfires in the backyard, reading (especially books by Louis L'Amour), gardening, going to Walt Disney World, and spending time with family and close friends. We went on a Disney cruise on the Wonder, September of 2006 and it was great! We are going again this year in September (2008) or to Walt Disney World. In 2012 we will visit Disneyland, and maybe we will see Tokyo or Paris Disney sometime. My husband has been an EMT, firefighter, and a Sheriffs deputy; hence my public name: Mrs. Meduck (medic). He has a very limited list of foods that he will eat. He says he is just selective. It's very hard and pretty much impossible to find something new and different to cook that he will like. He doesn't like ANY spices unless you count ketchup as a spice. I am hoping our son isn't as "selective" when he gets older. I work for a retail chain called Mill's Fleet Farm, in the Hardware/Paint department. I have also worked in the Sporting Goods dept., the Auto Service Center (writing work orders & working on cars), and in Loss Prevention. My husband has shown me how to work the digital camera and now my new passion is finding recipes I like and posting photos if there isn't any posted yet.
