Not your average matzah pizza! Lox and Horseradish Schmear Matzah Pizza is so epic you’ll eat it year round.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love cooking for Passover. Really! Pass the gefilte fish. Pass those jelly things. But seriously, I like the challenge. Usually, I just go bread free for the week (and not try to make sub-par Passover lasagna or Passover rolls) but there is always room for matzah pizza. It’s just the best. This Lox and Horseradish Schmear version is a step up from your usual Passover snack, and the best bagel substitute ever. I partnered with Reese Specialty Food to take horseradish off the seder table and into regular rotation! For Passover and beyond.
Prepare to spread Horseradish Schmear on everything.
I love this recipe because it’s simple, delicious, would be perfect for breakfast or even a Passover appetizer and it’s beautiful too! Smoked fish is 100% an aphrodisiac. Rour.
What are you guys doing for Passover this year? Back in Texas I always hosted, but this year in California I’m getting to be an attendee! It will be weird not making brisket for 15, (and matzah crack for like 100) but I’m excited for it! (Check out some past seders here and here!)
But I may have to crack and bring these as an appetizer. I LOVE horseradish- turned into a steak sauce, a spicy mayo on a sandwich and now as schmear. I hope you’ll try Reese Horseradish and Capers and you can download the Ibotta app to earn rebates too! Yayyy.Ta da! You can even make the schmear ahead of time and whip these up as guests arrive. They will gobble them right up.
