Pizza in China
There’s an old tale that Pizza originated in China. When Marco Polo came to China, he encountered scallion pie, a flat bread that uses dough instead of a batter. When Marco Polo returned to Italy he met a chef from Naples at a dinner party and persuaded him to recreate the dish, putting the fillings on top of the dough instead of the inside.

- Using your hands or spatula, gently combine the flour mixture until smooth. Then turn out dough onto lightly floured surface and hand knead for roughly five minutes.
- Place the dough mixture in to an oiled bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place until the dough has at least risen to double in size.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Hand knead gently for five minutes until reasonably smooth.
- Sprinkle some flour on work surface before rolling out dough to prevent any sticking.
- Divide dough mix into equal amounts, now roll out the bases to the desired size.

Preparing Breakfast Pizza
Turn your oven on to 450-500 degrees or more and preheat for at least 30 minutes.
Spread out the dough in a rough circle, on a floured board or surface.
If you are using a baking pan, then create the pizza in that.
Open the sauce container, and start to spread the Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce around the whole base, taking care to leave a gap at edges.
Add the ingredients in size order, from large to small.
Cheese gets added last.
The toppings to add to this pizza are;

Whilst this pizza is flavorsome on its own, or why not try it with other pizza types?
Put the Breakfast pizza on the middle shelf in oven, and wait ten minutes.
After 10 minutes, open the door and check the pizza.
This pizza should take approximately 15 minutes, however allow it to cook to personal taste.
Although not a common topping, Egg is usually hard boiled and then sliced and allowed to cool completely, before being used as a topping on Pizza. However, some pizzas go well with a fried egg placed on top.
Eggs are very healthy for you. One egg contains only 5 grams of fat, 7 grams of high-quality protein, iron, minerals, vitamins and carotenoids. The humble egg contains amazing disease fighting nutrients, such as zeaxanthin and lutein.
When making Breakfast Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s the basic pizza tools that I always suggest…
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.
Did you know that Tomato is actually a fruit, not a vegetable? There’s over 10,000 types of tomatoes around the world, and China is the largest producer of the delicious fruit. Historically, Tomato was originally found in South America and Central America.
Tomatoes are healthy! Packed with vitamins A and C, calcium and potassium, they are also rich in lycopene, an antioxidant that is good for the heart and effective against certain cancers.
Want to store some leftovers after your meal? Here are a few tips.
Chill in the fridge
You can keep pizza in plastic wrap or a container for up to 3 days in the fridge.
How to reheat

Pizza making FAQ
Want to know how to make fantastic pizza at home? Here are some helpful answers to the most frequently asked questions.
When making a fruit pizza what can I put on the fruit so it will not turn brown?
You can add lemon juice as an acid on top of fruits to prevent them browning, however I often find the question should be more about when to put the fruit on. A lot of times, you can cook the pizza with all the other toppings, and then add the fruit as soon as you remove it from the oven. This way, the fruit heats quickly from the pizza, but doesn’t get a chance to burn in the oven.
How long is pizza good for in the fridge?
A cooked pizza will store in the fridge for up to 5 days, depending on the toppings and the container it is being held in.
Why isn’t my pizza crust cooking all the way through?
Either you didn’t cook your pizza long enough, or the oven wasn’t hot enough. You should always let your oven preheat for at least 30 minutes before you bake the pizza. Then watch your pizza crust turn golden around the edges and evenly browned on the bottom before removing.
