Home-made pizzas are ideal for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This was my first time using the Jamaica’s National Fruit as a topping for pizza.
Ackee and codfish is Jamaica’s National Dish . This dish is usually served as a breakfast item with a starch item such as: dumplings, yam and/or Breadfruit. The Ackee and Codfish Pizza is another non-traditional way to explore and showcase the Jamaica’s national fruit.

Add garlic and onion, turn flame on and cook for up to 1 minute, avoid burning.

After ackee is boiled until tender, add cooked ackee to codfish mixture.
Season with black pepper, thyme and rosemary and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Pizza Dough Options
Pizza dough can be purchased from your local supermarket or you can make your own dough from scratch. However, i choose Naan Stonefire Bread as my pizza base because they are buttery soft, and fluffy. There are many other brands of flat breads that can be used.
