Leksands Knäcke Pizzor

When I was in Sweden last month I picked up a booklet by Leksands Knäcke on how to make pizza from knäckebröd – Swedish crisp bread. I thought this to be such a clever idea as I love pizza but I can’t really cope with the flour and water pizza base al the time as my digest system is not really good with flour. The knäckebröd gives it a really healthy crunchy base. I love it!

Ingredients for the salmon pizza

8 Leksands Knäcke slices or one round crisp bread (available at IKEA)
75 gram grated mozzarella
150 gram smoked salmon slices
2 sprigs fresh chopped dill
1 red onion (cut in rings)
ground black pepper and salt (to taste)
1 handful of fresh rocket
1 tablespoon olive oil

Preheat the oven to 225°C (437°F). Place the knäcke on a piece of baking paper on a oven tray. Sprinkle the mozzarella over the knäcke. On top of that the salmon slices, the dill and the red onion rings. Add salt and pepper and sprinkle the olive oil over the knäcke. Place in the oven for 10 minutes. Garnish with fresh rocket.

Ingredients for the chicken pizza

8 Leksands Knäcke slices or one round crisp bread (available at IKEA)
1 chicken fillet (300 gram)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon korma paste
75 gram grated mozzarella
125 gram sliced mushrooms
1 white onion (cut in rings)
2 sprigs fresh chopped oregano
2 sprigs fresh chopped rosemary
2 sprigs fresh chopped sage
ground black pepper and salt (to taste)

Mix 1 tablespoons of olive oil with 1 teaspoon of korma paste in a wide bowl. Rub the chicken fillet through the marinade and grill on a contact grill or in a grill pan until golden brown.

Preheat the oven to 225°C (437°F). Place the knäcke on a piece of baking paper on a oven tray. Sprinkle the mozzarella over the knäcke and the mushrooms. Slice the chicken fillet and lay on top of the mushrooms. Add the oregano, rosemary, sage and onion rings to the knäcke. Add salt and pepper and sprinkle the olive oil over the knäcke. Place in the oven for 10 minutes.

    Ja dat is lekker. Ik zag het op een filmpje en heb het ook gemaakt. Mijn dochter kwam met de tip om een groot rond Turks brood doormidden te snijden, te beleggen en even in de oven. Ook heerlijk!

    These look so pretty! But where can you get knäcke not made with flour?

      Oh no don’t get me wrong, there’s flour in knäcke but for not as many as in normal pizza dough. That’s why this is so perfect for me. I don’t eat bread either but I do eat knäcke. You must try it, it’s so delicious.

    These look amazing and I do love knackebrod…there is even a place in Scotland that makes them. Have you tried making a pizza with cauliflower, ground almonds, oats and eggs as the base – delicious!
