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.

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.

I’m Jamaican and I have never seen this before. Now I’m curious. I want to try this out. Thanks for the idea.
This wouldn’t be my usual go to for ingredients on pizzas. I like cod but not sure about it with cheese. It looks good though! Thank you for sharing this interesting recipe!
Thanks Lauren. You will have to try this pizza to experience the flavors.
I absolutely love a knee and salt fish. I’m very happy to have another way to eat it. Thanks for this,
Thank you Mark. Hope you get to try it soon.
This looks absolutely delicious! Definitely need to try soon. Thanks for sharing!
A+ for your creativity. A+ for making me curious about the flavour that I know it is bursting with. I am assuming the codfish can be salted or fresh. I love ackee and saltfish; I can only imagine it on pizza.
Thanks for dropping by Malaika. Appreciate the ratings. hope to see you again.
