A magical transformation is only half the story for this sesame bagel inspired pizza recipe. I’ve been told that one shouldn’t mess with a bagel, it’s a classic, what are you thinking. Well if we never created new things we never would’ve had bagels. Just think about that for a minute.
Another thing to ponder is how great cream cheese goes on pizza, with even more cheese on top. The classic comfort of cream cheese, magic melty mozzarella and a butter brushed crust covered in toasted sesame seeds sums up this sesame bagel inspired pizza. The only question you need to ask yourself is when can I make one of these, a bagel you can actually share, if you want to.
