- Add salt and flour in a large bowl. Create a hollow well in the middle and gently pour the liquid yeast mixture and oil.
- Using a spatula, or your hands, mix the dough really well until smooth. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place dough in it and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour, or until it doubles in size.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for another 5 minutes or until smooth.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.

Preparing Peking Duck 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 Hoisin Sauce. Spread the Hoisin 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.

About Brown Sugar
This sweet and salty treat adds a unique flavor profile to pizzas that can be both savory and sweet. When used in moderation, brown sugar is also considered healthy because it contains fewer calories than other sugary toppings like honey or maple syrup.
It’s also low in sodium and provides essential vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus.
When making Peking Duck Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s what items I always recommend…
Do you have quality digital kitchen scales? It’s a great tool for any chef or pizza cook.
These may seem like a weird tool to some, however other pizzaiolo’s swear by using scissors instead of a traditional pizza cutter.
A pizza steel is very similar to a pizza stone, and works the same way in a normal kitchen oven.
First used for cuisine more than 3,000 years ago, Sesame Seeds is one of the oldest OilSeed crops known in the world. Many ancient stories speak of them. In one, the gods created the world and drank wine made from Sesame Seeds. In another, Sesame Seeds represent a symbol of immortality.
An annual flowering herb, the Sesame plant looks very similar to okra. To harvest the Seeds, the pods are dried and collected before they can open. Then, the Seeds are made into Paste or Sesame Oil.

Pizza making FAQ
Want to make delicious pizzas at home? Here are some expert answers to some of the most common pizza making questions.
Can I use a mixer to make the dough?
Sure thing! I regularly do. Always use a mixer with a dough hook attachment to make your pizza dough. First, add the dry ingredients and form a well to add the liquid, then always start on the lowest speed first, before increasing the speed and mixing for 5-6 minutes. If your mixer starts sounding like it’s straining, turn it to a slower speed for a longer time.
Where was the world’s most expensive pizza made?
The worlds most expensive pizza costs $12,000 and is made in Salerno, Italy.
Can I use ciabatta bread for making pizza?
Yes! Breads are great to make pizza on, as it is quicker than making your own dough from scratch. Try my favourite, which is flat bread. It gets very crispy though, so don’t cook it for long. Otherwise, ciabatta or italian breads are also good alternatives if you are short on time.
