Jamaican Ackee and Codfish Pizza

Ackee and Codfish Pizza
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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.
