I've found very few places that dare to combine those two in one dish. None of them succeeded, in my opinion.

At first I thought it was due to mixing rice and wheat, then thought it was due to the different temperatures. Whatever the reason, I still want to make something that combines both, something that could be considered pizza and that could also be considered sushi. Is it possible?

I've seen it advertised in brasil but was way too scared to order it – Willbill Sep 8 '10 at 13:13

Circular bed of sticky sushi rice, topped with a drizzle of spicy mayo as the sauce and chunks of sashimi. cut into pizza slices.

It doesn't really have any pizza ingredients, does it? It might be worth trying, though, but I wonder if the rice alone can be sticky enough to hold the toppings... – Julio Sep 8 '10 at 13:46
@Julio: This isn't just a random a recipe, this is what sushi pizza actually is. It's served in many sushi restaurants across North America. – Aaronut Sep 8 '10 at 14:34
Do you eat it like a slice of pizza? Knife and fork? Chopsticks? Seems like the rice would fall apart if the piece was too big. – awshepard Sep 8 '10 at 15:10
The wikipedia article cited below indicated the sushi rice is fried into a patty, so that would hold together better. – Michael at Herbivoracious Sep 8 '10 at 15:53
You guys can ding me for this, but I just thought of it when I read the question. I wouldn't want any "real" pizza ingredients with my raw fish. Crust: no. Tomato sauce: no. Cheese: Hells no! – user1575 Sep 8 '10 at 16:30

I frequent the Vancouver sushi scene and can't say I see this very often if ever. It seems it does exist though, primarily on the east coast.

Wikipedia even has an article, which is proof that it does, in fact, exist. :)

You ever go to Irashai sushi? Been to Vancouver twice and always had to go there. – user1575 Sep 12 '10 at 15:42

I know that at Morimoto's in New York he has a pizza dish that is essentially sushi ingredients on pizza dough. This is quoted from a NY Times article :

a 'tuna pizza' with raw bluefin tuna, jalapeño, red onion, olives and an anchovy aioli atop a crisp, thin tortilla. I also liked silky slices of "lamb carpaccio," dressed with Japanese green onions, grated ginger and garlic oil.

I'm not saying its right, but it at least seems possible

Sushi pizza, as linked and described above, is a very common dish in North Americanized sushi restaurants. It seems to be slightly more popular on the East coast, though I have eaten it both in Vancouver and in Victoria.
