Two of my favorite foods – sushi and pizza – come together in the form of sushi pizza! This fun and healthy recipe doesn’t require any rolling.
Sushi, sushi, sushi. My sushi burrito recipe was such a big hit, I have another fun sushi twist for you today – sushi pizza! It’s also a fun collab with my friend Ally from Fashion By Ally. It’s the next recipe in our monthly recipe series.
If making healthy choices is one of your New Year’s resolutions this year, swap out your traditional pizza for a sushi pizza! I basically crave sushi every five minutes, but it’s too expensive to eat it all the time. Making sushi at home is a great way to get your fix. Whether you’re making traditional sushi, sushi burritos or sushi pizza, it’s also really fun, and a great activity for a group or a date.
The biggest expense is the fish itself. It’s very important to get sushi or sashimi grade fish so you don’t get sick from eating it uncooked. As you might guess, it’s pretty expensive to get good fish, typically $20 to $35 per pound. That being said, a pound of fish will feed quite a few people! The fish for this pizza cost about $30, which works out to be about $7 a serving. That’s way less than eating out.
If you’re looking for sashimi-grade fish, I suggest checking out your local Japanese market (if you have one), Whole Foods (they sometimes carry sashimi-grade fish), or you can order sashimi online at Catalina Offshore Products. If you’re looking for sushi grade fish in San Francisco, Nijiya Market in Japantown is great.
