"Thin Crust" Sushi Pizza

Hey Chowhounds! I had the pleasure of trying my first sushi pizza years ago at a now-defunct restaurant out west. It was large (think the size of your avg. dinner plate), scattered with a delicious assortment of fish, sprinkled with roe, and drizzled w/ a spicy mayo-based sauce. Back then/there, it was considered an upscale item, at upscale prices.

In Toronto, I was delighted to see sushi pizzas on menus everywhere. However, the ones I tried (Sushi on Bloor, New Generation -- student in the Annex w/ accompanying budget, sorry) all had this thick rice-cake for a the "crust". Plus, the actual pizza itself was built small & high, not large and flat.

My sushi pizza of dreams had a thin, chewy, golden crispy pancake of a crust. Almost like a deep-fried flatbread, but made of rice. It also had the assortment of fish (as opp. to just salmon and roe) but this is not as important as that addictive crust.

Anyone know where I can find this kind of sushi pizza? Thanks in advance!
