What could be better than this bagel-inspired entrée? It combines storebought pizza dough with that favorite combo of smoked salmon and cream cheese (but here we use Boursin, which brings built-in garlic and herbs). Its perfect for a laid back dinner for four, but it can also be turned into an easy and elegant brunch appetizer by being cut into smaller bite-size squares.

  • Drizzle dough evenly with remaining 1 tablespoon oil; sprinkle with sesame seeds and season with salt and pepper. Top with mozzarella and garlic-herb cheese, leaving a 1/2-inch border.

  • Bake on stone until cheese is melted and bubbly, and crust is golden brown and set on bottom, 22 to 24 minutes. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine beet, lemon zest and juice, and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Let stand 10 minutes. Remove pizza from oven; let cool slightly. Top with salmon, beet mixture, and herbs. Slice and serve.
