Instructions

  1. Step 1 Make the bianco sauce and oil dressing

    Mix together the crème fraîche, horseradish, lemon juice and zest, dill and chives, season with some salt and pepper and set aside. In a small bowl, toss the red onion with the olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Set aside.

  2. Step 2 Make the dough

    Preheat oven to 400F. Following the instructions on the back of the bread mix packet, create a dough.

  3. Step 3 Roll the dough and assemble pizzette

    Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces. On a floured surface, roll out each piece into a 5-inch round. Brush each round with olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Top each round with the onion slices, dividing them evenly between the 6 rounds.

  4. Step 4 Let pizzette rise and bake

    Carefully slide the pizzette onto a baking sheet or pizza stone and leave to rise in a warm place for 10 minutes. Place the pizzette in the oven and bake until the crusts are lightly browned, about 6-8 minutes.

  5. Step 5 Remove from oven, add toppings and serve 

    Remove the pizzette from the oven and transfer them to a board or serving platter. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then dollop some of the herb crème fraiche onto each followed by some arugula. Scatter the smoked salmon and salmon roe on top dividing it evenly between the pizzette. Garnish each with a sprig of dill and serve immediately.
