Pizza is a delicious food all around the world, but did you know that it can be quite different depending on where you go? That’s because the ingredients, cooking methods, and pizza-making traditions vary greatly from place to place. For example, in Italy, pizza is typically made with simple and high-quality ingredients such as fresh mozzarella and tomatoes, and cooked in a wood-fired oven, which gives it its characteristic soft and chewy crust.
In contrast, in America, pizza is often loaded with toppings and cooked in a gas oven, resulting in a much crispier crust. Even within the same country, you can find different regional variations. For example, in New York, you will find the classic thin-crust pizza, while in Chicago, you will find a deep-dish pizza with a thick crust.
The unique characteristics of pizza in different places make it a fascinating food to explore and try.

When making BBQ Chicken Pizza, we always recommend that you use whatever tools you are able to get your hands on. Our basic pizza tools are…
Quality Food Containers
Leftovers need to go somewhere, and I don’t enjoy using aluminium foil or plastic wrap all the time. A couple of good air tight containers should be in every home.
Sometimes called a paddle or shovel, a pizza peel is a vital tool for those who make pizza regularly.
Wooden Rolling Pin
Many people prefer hand stretching, however every cook really should have a good wooden roller nearby too.
BBQ chicken is a great pizza topping that offers a sweet, smoky flavor profile. It’s also an incredibly versatile ingredient—you can pair it with just about any other topping for a delicious outcome.
