This was great! We even liked it as leftovers thrown into a tupperware. Even my DH who doesn't like sushi took it for lunch the following day.
I'm so sorry, but this isnt sushi pizza at all! Crated here in Toronto (not in Montreal as some may say) the base is small - about 4" in diameter, just about 1/2" thick, and the rice is deep fried. frist. then topped...this makes ALL the difference in the taste / texture obviously. Great idea! But not nearly what sushi pizza is cut out to be :)<br/><br/>Better yet, you can make 2" size circle pads, fry them, and top individually as mini-pizzas on a platter for a dinner party.<br/>Thats just my two cents (...or...shall I say my 'nickle' now that Canada no longer has pennies!)<br/><br/>Peace out, ya'll.
Fantastic Recipe . Have served this to numerous friends who have loved it. Tend to use the pickled ginger as a gernish. Definitely worth a 5 star rating Anne (Glasgow)
