Salmon Sushi Pizza

Salmon. Sushi. Pizza. If any of those three words excites you, what I'm about to say next will surely blow your mind. Sushi pizza. Yes, you heard me right. Today we made sushi pizza from a fresh California king salmon. Now, before I go on, if you're reading this, hi. Pease take a very quick second to smash that like button below. It helps more than you could EVER, possibly imagine and my entire incredible team and I are greatly appreciative. Now, back to the sushi pizza. We've had regular sushi rolls, sushi bowls, sushi burritos and even sushi burgers. But I have never had or seen sushi pizza anywhere. The pizza we created in this video had somewhat of a floppy crust, and, next time, I'd love to try to make crispy rice as the whole pizza, which will then be topped with fish, whether it's tuna, salmon, eel, or really anything out there. I'm sure several Japanese sushi-masters would look at this video (and I really hope for both my own sake and particularly theirs that they don't find it) and cringe. But, for me, the important part here is that the rice is cooked and seasoned properly, the fish is cut into beautiful cubes and well-marinated, and the accompaniments all fit in well with the overall theme of the pizza. While this may not be the easiest or most functional way to eat sushi, I loved it.
