Caesar Salmon Pizzas

One of the best things to eat as comfort food, at least in my book, is pizza. I can never go wrong with pizza. It's warm, tasty, cheesy, and goes well with any topping. But, since I'm a simple girl, I always play it safe and get a stuffed crust cheese pizza, light on the sauce, with extra cheese. Give me a slice or two, and I'm in relaxation heaven. Nothing can touch me, nothing can bother me, it's just plain and simple comfort. Another kind of food that I enjoy a lot is salmon. I especially like it the way my mom cooks it, but overall, I just like anything that includes salmon. As I was looking through the Better Homes & Gardens New Cook Book, I noticed that it featured a recipe that joined salmon and pizza together into a really fast-to-make pizza that will become part of my weekly or every two weeks lunch. It no lie takes 15 minutes to put together, and that's including prep time and baking time. Just remember to "plan on one pizza per diner for lunch. To serve as an appetizer, cut each pizza into quarters."
