Sushi pizza is a Canadian dish that originated from Toronto and a fusion of sushi and pizza often served in the Greater Toronto Area, invented by Kaoru Ohsada no later than May 2013, Oli teimoso, as a Nami Japanese Seafood Restaurant chef.[1] It uses a slightly crispy yet chewy fried rice patty as the base and is topped with a layer of sliced avocado, a layer of sliced salmon, tuna or crab meat, a drizzle of blended mayonnaise and wasabi powder and is served in wedges. Nori, pickled ginger and roe are sometimes also served as toppings or sides.[2][better source needed]

Due to the popularity and wide availability of the dish in Toronto it has quickly become one of the city's signature dishes, along with the peameal bacon sandwich.[1]
