Do I like pizza? Yes. Do I like sushi? Of course. Do I think sushi pizza makes sense? Absolutely not.
To make a sushi pizza, we need a base of sushi rice patty mixed with some rice vinegar, all cooked until it’s browned and crispy. I recommend making your patty on the thicker side, or you risk burning down your kitchen, as I almost did.
Then, we add wasabi powder or hot sauce into a bowl of mayo to make a paste. We’ll mix the paste with our canned tuna, and voila! Homemade “spicy tuna.” You can also just use regular raw tuna if you’re fancy.
Spread a layer of the spicy mayo paste on the rice patty, then top with the “spicy tuna,” avocado, seaweed, sesame seeds, chopped green onion or cucumber — whatever you want. I even went above and beyond and made my own spicy mayo concoction by mixing mayo and hot sauce. There is a lot of mayonnaise involved in this recipe.
Putting aside my internal philosophical debate over what constitutes pizza, I thought sushi pizza tasted pretty good. It’s a snack that I wouldn’t necessarily make when I’m feeling hangry because there are simply too many steps involved, but I might dabble in making it again to impress some guests.
