Cheesy Onion and Smoked Salmon Pizza

Smoked salmon pizzaToday, we're going to make a pizza with a rich topping to satisfy your taste buds. If you are health conscious and avoid such cheesy and heavy toppings, try one with a lighter topping. Smoked salmon has a distinct flavor which goes well with light seasoning and cheese. I've used white onion which can be substituted with red onion. Although cold smoked salmon slices are easily available in superstores, nothing can match with the homemade version. Use a generous amount of cheese for this topping. For best results, use charcoal or apple wood while smoking salmon. So, let's get started and make this cheesy, lip-smacking and fulfilling salmon pizza preparation for our loved ones and friends.
