Check Out This Unique Pizza Baked Fish Recipe

Not a huge fan of fish but trying to introduce more to your diet? This recipe is a wonderful way to explore the flavors of fish mixed with foods your taste buds are familiar with. Pizza and fish might sound like an odd combination, but once you try this recipe you'll understand the angle we're coming from here.

You'll need some classic pizza ingredients for this recipe, like mushrooms and tomato paste. For the fish, we recommend using red snapper. If you can't find red snapper, or if you just don't like it, you can always choose a different fish. This recipe is supposed to be a way to get your family to eat more seafood, so as long as you're using some type of fish you're all set!

For the cheese, we'll be using part-skim mozzarella. Part of the appeal of seafood is its low fat content. The benefits of that are reduced if we pile on full-fat cheese. That's why we've chosen to use part-skim mozzarella here. The taste will still be great, but not at the cost of your health.

Without any further ado, let's dive into this fantastic recipe. We truly hope you enjoy it, and that this becomes an easy way for your family to eat more seafood. Seafood is an important part of a healthy diet, so finding good recipes that make it worth eating is what you want to do.

Pizza Baked Fish


½ pound sliced fresh mushrooms, divided
cup chopped onion
½ teaspoon minced garlic
¾ cup water
½ cup tomato paste
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
¼ teaspoon sugar
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper
2 pounds red snapper fillets or fish of choice
1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced into rings
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

2. In a non-stick skillet, combine half the mushrooms, the onion, and the garlic, and sauté over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the water, tomato paste, basil, oregano, sugar, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

3. Place the fish in a 2-quart oblong baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Season with salt and pepper, and pour the sauce over the fish. Top with the remaining mushrooms and the green pepper rings. Bake the fish for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with mozzarella, and continue baking for 5 minutes, or until the fish flakes with a fork and the cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
