This is a delicious and unique pizza, with 3 cheeses, salmon, and a drizzle Mike’s Hot Honey. Recipe by FoodE Experts Michele Licata & Lynda Kuzma


  1. Heat oven to 450 F. Let pizza dough rise.
  2. Place salmon skin side down on a cookie sheet (lined with parchment paper for easy clean-up) or grill. Coat the salmon and asparagus with olive oil and sprinkle a generous amount of L&B Gone Fishin seasoning and black pepper. Bake or grill 6-8 minutes then flip the salmon and remove skin. Add asparagus to the pan and bake/grill both for an additional 4-5 minutes or until the internal temperature of the salmon is 120 degrees. Do not overcook.
  3. Mix the goat cheese and the ricotta cheese together in a small bowl.
  4. Shape pizza dough into round crust, bake until slightly golden brown on the edges. About 8 minutes depending on the thickness of the dough. Remove from oven and carefully spread on the goat cheese mixture. Break up the salmon onto the pizza, topping it with red onion slices, asparagus, lemon zest and pepper. Top with smoked Gouda and bake an additional 6 minutes or just until the cheese is bubbly. Drizzle with Mike’s Hot Honey then top with a generous amount of arugula. Enjoy!
