Fishy pizza

4.7/5 A strange combination but it worked very well. The kind of pizza you would probably find in Sicily. Jerry, aka Chef (talk)

About time we had another seafood pizza. This time I thought I would try smoked peppered mackerel. It's available from most supermarkets, a 250g pack usually contains 4 peppered mackerel fillets, plenty enough for 2 pizzas. I used 2 jarred red peppers in oil to add a little colour and flavour.

Mise en place


  1. Divide the pizza dough into two and roll out into two pizzas
  2. Make each pizza individually and place the first one in the oven to keep warm whilst the second pizza completes
  3. Grill the pizza for about 2 to 3 minutes per side with no toppings added
  4. Removed the part-baked pizza and spread with Tomato sauce for pizza or passata
  5. Remove the skin from the mackerel fillets and tear into bite-sized pieces and distribute over the pizza
  6. Do the same with the red pepper strips
  7. Arrange the torn mozzarella over the seafood. Try to cover as much of the seafood as possible so it does not get too crisped
  8. Season with salt and black pepper and drizzle with chili oil if liked
  9. Bake for about 3 or 4 minutes under the hot grill until the mozzarella just starts to brown
  10. Serve immediately
