Coming to a Pizzeria Near You

FRIED CATFISH PIZZA



My friend YT2095 Always enjoys some type of pizza on Saturday’s for dinner.
I always enjoy fried Catfish for dinner on Saturdays. So I got this Idea for a Fried Catfish Pizza!

THE CRUST:

1- 12’ Store Bought Pizza Crust (Your favorite)
Brushed with EVOO and sprinkled liberally with Cajun/Creole Seasoning

THE SAUCE:

1 ½ Cups chopped onion
¾ Cup Chopped Green Bell Pepper
½ Cup Chopped Celery
2 Cups (more or less) Chopped Tomatoes.
3 toes Chopped Garlic
2-3 Tbls. Cajun/Creole Seasoning
2 Bay Leaves
1-2 Tbls Bacon fat
S&P to taste.

Sauté the onion, pepper, and celery in the bacon fat for 3 or 4 minutes. Add tomatoes, garlic, Cajun Seasoning and bay leaves. S&P to taste and simmer gently until the veggies are done. Use an immersion blender to make a nice sauce…a little chunky. Let it cool completely.

TOPPINGS.

12 oz shredded Mozzarella Cheese
4 oz Pepper Jack Cheese
1 Cup Cubed Frozen French Fries
Strips of Red and Gold Pepper
2 Green onions diced. Tops included
4 Tbls Chopped Parsley
8 Strips Fried Catfish


Flash Fry the Cubed Potatoes, drain and reserve. Start the Catfish frying in hot peanut oil Spread cooled sauce evenly over crust. Cover the sauce with shredded cheese. Place it in a pre-heated 400* oven for 6 minutes. Remove and sprinkle fried cubed potatoes over cheese and return to the oven. When the catfish is done remove and drain on paper towels. Flash fry the strips of pepper in hot oil for 30 seconds. Remove pizza from the oven. Arrange fish and peppers in a pinwheel design and garnish with Diced green onions, parsley, and a nice sprinkle of Cajun/Creole seasoning! Serve while hot!!!!

Go ahead and laugh. I had loads of fun making it, and it was good!!!

Have you seen the latest from Dominos? The "Crispy Melt Pizza ".Two thin, crispy crusts with cheese and toppings in between. WAKE UP PEOPLE! This is NOT a pizza, it is two flour tortillas with cheese, meat, and vegetables in between, better known as a QUESADILLA!

That pizza does't make me laugh. It makes me drool. I love fried fish (but not muddy Mississippi catfish). I love the catfish from the Lake Superior water basin (and all others from the same place, lightly coated with flour and either deep or pan fried in oil. The presentation you photograghped is nothing less than stunning. You need to come up here where I live and we'll go ice-fishing together for some great fish, and then, we'll cook 'em "Uncle Bob" style.

Oh if it could only be so easy.

Fish looks great. How about making a Christmas gift to us by sharing your batter recipe for the fried fish?

Love the colors, however, I myself would never eat that Fish and pizza don't mix for me, but it sounds like a meal made in heaven for you and YT
