Pizza is a tasty 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. It’s like a culinary journey around the world, in one slice!

- Using dough mixer or hands, gently mix dough until smooth. Place pizza dough on a lightly floured work surface and then knead by hand for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place mixture in and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise until the dough doubles in size.
- Pour dough mix out onto a clean, floured surface. Now hand knead gently for another five minutes.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.
- Divide dough mixture into equal sized balls. Hand stretch or roll out the bases to the expected size.

If your sauce seems to runny, add some more tomato paste.

Put the Cheeseburger pizza in the middle of your oven (on a pizza steel if you have one) and set timer for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, open the door and see how cooked pizza is.
Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.
Often used as a flavouring or side dish, Bacon is a type of salt-cured pork. Bacon is created through a curing process, where the meat is soaked in a solution of salt, nitrates and sometimes sugar. Afterwards, the Bacon is typically smoked.
Bacon’s history goes back thousands of years to China in 1500 BC. Pigs were also being raised in Europe by 1500 BC, possibly for the same purpose. In Middle English the word Bacon meant all pork in general.
When making Cheeseburger Pizza, I always recommend that you use whatever kitchen items you have. My basic pizza tools are…
Wooden Rolling Pin
Many people prefer hand stretching, however every cook really should have a good wooden roller nearby too.
You will find having a seive such a useful element for pizza making as well as all your baking. It’s great to filter all flours through a fine mesh sieve, to make sure they’re ready for use.
Good quality metal or plastic bench scrapers make it so much esier to both cut your dough, and scrape your bench. I prefer plastic to avoid scratching my bench.
When it comes to pizza toppings, nothing adds a unique flavor quite like pickles. Pickles are an interesting topping that can be added to any kind of pizza. From sweet and sour dill pickles to spicy jalapenos, the possibilities are endless.
Pickles come in so many different shapes, sizes, and flavors that it’s easy to customize your pizza to your own taste preferences.
Leftovers after the meal? Here are some tips.
Chill in the fridge
You can keep pizza in plastic wrap or a container for up to 3 days in the fridge.

You can freeze pizza for up to three months, however I’d suggest consuming it within the first few weeks, ideally.
