About Pecorino Cheese
Pecorino was named 2,000 years ago from the Italian word pecora, which means “sheep.” Although known as the firm, hard cheese available from most stores, Pecorino actually covers all Italian cheeses that are made from ewe’s milk.
Pecorino is available in Italy in three main classifications that are based on how long the individual cheeses have been aged. They are fresco, semi-stagionato and stagionato.
When making Savoy Cabbage and Bacon Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s what items I always recommend…
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.
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.
These are all true, believe me!

Pizza making FAQ
Want to make great pizza at home? Here are some expert answers to some of 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.
