Smoked salmon pizza

I did say the orange recipe book was back - and here's proof!
Another one, which I really can't believe I have waited this long to make. This pizza is delicious, and has a beautiful combination of fresh ingredients which is actually a good way to satisfy a craving in a low-fat kind of way It is also very simple and very quick - what's not to like! I particularly like the grated pumpkin, which adds a softeness to the dish, almost akin to some gooey mozarella - yep, you know what I mean. I would caution restraint here though, you don't want the pumpkin to over power the salmon.
Mr Rough cooking and I had this on a quiet Friday night, but you could easily take the basics and make a pizza smorgas board for friends for an easy lunch or dinner.
Smoked salmon, ricotta and pumpkin pitta pizza
