  • 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. wasabi paste
  • 3 Tbsp. peanut oil or vegetable oil, divided
  • 4 oz. thinly sliced smoked salmon
  • 1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced on an angle
  • 6 oz. fresh sushi grade tuna, thinly sliced
  • 1 ripe avocado, thinly sliced

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine water, rice, vinegar, salt, and sugar in a medium saucepan, and let stand 10 minutes. Turn heat on medium-high, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook until rice is tender, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer rice to a baking sheet, and allow to cool, about 10 minutes.Step 2

Combine mayonnaise and wasabi in a small bowl, set aside.Step 3

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add rice to skillet; using wet hands, press rice, forming a large rice patty. Let rice cook, undisturbed, until lightly golden on bottom, about 5 minutes. Brush top of rice cake with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Carefully place the back of a small pizza pan over skillet, and flip skillet to invert the rice cake. Slide rice cake back into hot skillet over medium-high, and cook other side until lightly golden and crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet, and let cool, about 10 minutes. (Rice patty can be chilled in freezer 5 minutes to speed up the process.)Step 4

Spread wasabi mayonnaise in a thin layer over rice patty leaving a 1-inch border. Arrange smoked salmon in a ring around outer edge of mayonnaise layer. Arrange cucumber slices in a ring overlapping salmon. Arrange tuna slices overlapping cucumber. Arrange avocado slices in center of pizza. Sprinkle jalapeño slices evenly over pizza, and spoon ginger slices in center of avocado slices.Step 5

Combine soy glaze and ponzu sauce in a small bowl. Drizzle soy mixture over pizza. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
