I’m obsessed with this spicy salmon sushi pizza made with spicy mayo, sushi-grade salmon, avocado, scallions, and jalapeño on a tortilla crust.
Spicy Salmon Sushi Pizza
I love the sushi pizza at a neighborhood restaurant, so I set out to make my own. After much trial and error and asking my Instagram followers for help with the crust, I finally landed on the winning recipe – it’s so good! Great with sushi-grade salmon or tuna and you can make the tortilla crust in the air fryer or oven. They are dairy-free and gluten-free if made with Siete gluten-free tortillas but any tortillas will work. If you like sushi as much as I do, you might also love these California Shrimp Stacks, Tuna Poke Bowls, or Spicy Canned Salmon Bowls.
Where to Buy Sushi-Grade Salmon:
I go to my local H Mart to buy salmon sashimi, but any supermarket that has a person making fresh sushi would sell s to you. You can also ask your local fishmonger for sushi grade salmon.
Sushi Pizza Ingredients
- Tortillas: I used Siete’s gluten-free casava tortilla, but you can use any tortilla you like.
- Avocado: Two ounces of avocado is about half of a small hass avocado.
- Salt for the mashed avocado
- Salmon: Buy eight ounces of fresh sushi-grade salmon.
- Spicy Mayo: Mayonnaise and sriracha
- Scallions: Mix half of the scallions with the salmon and keep the other half for garnish.
- Oil: Use toasted sesame oil for the salmon sauce.
- Soy Sauce: Swap it for tamari or coconut aminos if you’re gluten-free.
- Sesame Seeds: Sprinkle a teaspoon of black or white sesame seeds on top of the pizza.
- Jalapeño: Thinly slice a jalapeño.
How to Make Spicy Salmon Sushi Pizza
- Salmon: Combine the salmon, mayo, sriracha, half of the scallions, sesame oil, and soy sauce in a medium bowl.
- Avocado: Mash the avocado and season it with a pinch of salt.
- Tortilla Crust: To make the tortillas crisp, air fry or bake them before topping them with the sushi. Air fry the tortillas one at a time at 400°F for 60 to 90 seconds on each side. I place a rack on them so they don’t blow around. To bake them, preheat the oven to 425°F and bake on a sheet pan for five to six minutes, flipping halfway.
- Sushi Pizza Toppings: Put half of the avocado and salmon on each tortilla. Top with the jalapeños, remaining scallions, and sesame seeds. Drizzle with more soy sauce, sriracha, or spicy mayo.
How to Store Sushi Pizza
Sushi-grade salmon is best eaten the day it’s purchased, and this pizza won’t really hold in the fridge. I recommend only making as much as you are going to eat at one time. The recipe is easy to double or triple if you’re feeding more people.
- Swap the salmon with sushi-grade tuna.
- Don’t like raw fish? Use cooked salmon instead.
- Make a crispy rice crust: Press cooked brown rice into a small round air fryer pizza dish, and air fry it at 400°F for 5 minutes on each side.
- Spiciness: If you aren’t a fan of spicy sushi, omit or reduce the amount of sriracha and cut the seeds and ribs out of the jalapeño.
- Substitute sesame seeds with furikake seasoning.
