Japanese Pizza Recipe

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

1 Pizza base (see directions below if you want to make your own)

1 Packet Tassal’s thin-sliced smoked salmon

¼ Cup Edamame beans

3 Shiitake mushrooms

2 Teaspoons toasted sesame seeds

¼ Sheet dried nori seaweed

1 Cup Mozzarella cheese

¼ Cup Mayonnaise

1 Teaspoon Wasabi

Directions:

Step 1: Prepare topping by slicing salmon into 1 inch wide strips; defrost Edamame beans (if frozen); toast sesame seeds; crush nori seaweed sheet; and slice Shiitake mushrooms thinly.

Step 2: Prepare “pizza sauce” in a bowl, mixing Wasabi into Mayonnaise.

Step 3: Construct pizza – first using a tablespoon, spread Wasabi Mayonnaise mixture onto the pizza base; then add topping, starting first with the strips of salmon, then the mushrooms and beans, and lastly the Mozzarella cheese. Place into pre-heated oven and cook at 180 degree C for 20 minutes, until the cheese has melted and starts to brown.

Step 4: Remove from oven, sprinkle sesame seeds and crushed nori seaweed and serve.
