How to cook Pizza Fish in a hurry:
This fish recipe takes less than 15 minutes to make. Using frozen fish makes it even more convenient from a shopping standpoint.
Frozen tilapia and orange roughy will defrost in the time it takes to walk in the door from work, change clothes, and heat up the skillet. Typically, it takes less than 20 minutes to defrost the average fillet when placed in a bowl of water.
Another way to cut corners with this recipe is to first brown the fish, cover with pizza sauce and cheese, then put a lid on the pan and let the residual heat melt the cheese. This cuts out the broiler step although your cheese won’t get brown.
