This makes a wonderful 10 minutes or less party offering or appetizer, as well as a light entree on summer nights. Compliment it with a simple mixed green salad for supper.

2 tablespoons fresh dill leaves, chopped or snipped

1/4 English cucumber, thinly sliced
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
3 tablespoons capers, drained

Preheat oven to 400. Crisp pizza crust 5 minutes on perforated pizza pan or on oven rack. While pizza crust is in oven, mix sour cream with lemon juice and dill in a small bowl. Remove pizza shell from oven and let stand until cool to the touch. On cool, crisp pizza shell, spread the sour cream-dill sauce in an even layer. Evenly distribute sliced smoked salmon, working all the way to the edges. Top pizza with sliced cucumber, red onion, and capers. To serve, cut pizza in 1/2. Cut each 1/2 in 1/2 again, 4 cuts across.
