Lox and cream cheese get a tasty makeover in the form of a pizza that uses convenient store-bought dough. Most pizza package directions mention that the dough should stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before rolling out – this helps prevent it from puffing up in the oven. Baby kale is sweeter and more tender than its mature counterpart and makes a fresh finishing touch.
