Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Whole grain flour — For a lighter crust, you can replace half of the whole grain flour with all-purpose flour.
  • Smoked salmon — Make sure to use high-quality smoked salmon for the best flavor.
  • Lingonberries — If lingonberries are not available, you can substitute them with cranberries or red currants.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a crispier crust, preheat the baking sheet or pizza stone in the oven before placing the pizza dough on it.
  • Experiment with different Nordic-inspired toppings such as pickled herring, roasted beets, or wild mushrooms.
  • If you prefer a milder flavor, you can substitute the smoked salmon with gravlax or cooked shrimp.
  • Serve the pizza with a side of mixed greens dressed with a light vinaigrette to add freshness to the meal.
  • Leftover pizza can be enjoyed cold or reheated in a hot oven for a few minutes.

Serving advice

Serve the New Nordic-style pizza hot, straight from the oven. Cut it into slices and enjoy it as a main course or share it as an appetizer during a Nordic-inspired gathering.

Presentation advice

To enhance the presentation, garnish the pizza with additional fresh dill and lingonberries before serving. The vibrant red berries and green dill will add a pop of color to the dish.
