Fish Pizza Recipe

A healthier alternative to pepperoni.


1 lb. strong white bread flour
1/8 oz. powdered dried yeast
1/4 oz. salt
1-1/3 cups warm water
About 1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for cooking and drizzling
Plain flour, for dusting
1 garlic clove, sliced
One 14 oz. can chopped tomatoes
Pinch of dried chili flakes
5 oz. salmon, cooked and broken into pieces
3-1/2 oz. black pepper mackerel, cooked and broken into pieces
3-1/2 oz. shrimp, cooked


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425°F. Put a baking sheet in to heat.

Step 2: Mix the flour, yeast, salt and water to form a dough. Mix in the oil, turn out onto a surface and knead until smooth. Shape into a ball.

Step 3: Cover with a plastic bag and leave in a warm area until doubled in size. Roll out the dough into a large rectangle.*

Step 4: Put a little oil, the garlic, tomatoes and chili into a pan and cook for about 5 minutes.

Step 5: Spread the tomato mixture on top of the dough.

Step 6: Add the fish and shrimp, drizzle over some olive oil and bake in the oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until cooked.

Step 7: Serve the pizza with oil and a little arugula, and hot smoked salmon if desired.

* Dust the work surface with a little plain flour before rolling out the dough, otherwise it may stick to the surface. After rolling the dough out to a large rectangle, transfer it to a large lightly floured baking tray.
