WEEK 25: Cucumber Crisps

There are few things in life more enjoyable than a simple cucumber sandwich.  They’re light, delicate, and just begging for a glass of fresh squeezed lemonade.  This week’s pizza takes on a more summer like appearance. 

CUCUMBER CRISPS (8 CRISPS)

Cucumber Crisps 

CRUST

I used one half of the recipe of Cheri’s Favorite Pizza Dough, but substituted half of the flour for whole wheat

TOPPINGS

  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons carrots, divided – finely chopped
  • 2 green onions – sliced
  • 24 cucumber slices

Preheat oven to 500°.  While the oven is heating shape your dough into desired shape, I made 8 oblongs about 2” in width, 4” in length.  Poke several small holes in the crust with a fork to prevent bubbling.  Brush pizza dough with extra-virgin olive oil.  Transfer pizza dough to whatever, pan, stone, etc you will be using for cooking.  Cook pizza dough for 7 minutes or until crust is golden. 

In a small mixing bowl combine first (4) ingredients, reserving a few carrots for garnishing.  Spread cream cheese mixture over pizza dough after they have slightly cooled, and lay cucumbers over the top, garnish with additional carrot.  Serve immediately
