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.

Pizza Dough Method
If you don’t have much time, grab a premade pizza base at your local grocery store, or create your own homemade pizza dough following the simple steps below.
- Whisk yeast and lukewarm water in glass or plastic container. Let stand for approximately 5 minutes.
- 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 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.
- Divide dough mix into equal amounts, now roll out the bases to the desired size.
- Sprinkle some flour on work surface before rolling out dough to prevent any sticking.

Easy White Pizza Sauce Method
You can make this tasty pizza sauce following the simple steps below, or you can purchase a pizza sauce at your local supermarket.
- Melt the butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk flour in, and continue whisking for another 1-2 minutes.
- Whisk constantly whilst slowly adding milk, until smooth, bubbly and thickened.
- Whisk in the pepper, garlic and salt.
- Slowly add parmesan cheese and whisk for 30 seconds more. Take off heat and continue whisking until parmesan is melted and sauce becomes smooth. Now, set aside to cool.
- Don’t boil after adding cheese or sauce may curdle. Once cool, use on pizzas straight away. May be refrigerated for up to five days.
Remember that you can adjust the amount of garlic in your pizza sauce recipe to suit your taste.
Preparing Sweet and Creamy Pizza
Start by heating your oven to at least 450 degrees.
Spread out your dough on a well floured surface.
If you have a pizza peel, flour the peel and create your pizza on it.
Start by spreading the sauce all over the base. This pizza uses White Sauce. Spread the White Sauce Thinly yet evenly, leaving a margin for the crust.
Add the largest toppings first – typically meat or seafood, then the smaller toppings.
Add cheese last, and sprinkle it all over to help keep the toppings in place when it melts.
This pizza has the following toppings:
- Caramelized Onion
I find this pizza very good by itself, yet why not with another pizza variety?
Put the Sweet and Creamy 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 oven and look at pizza.
The pizza should be done within roughly 15 minutes. Always cook to personal tastes.
About Cream Cheese
Cream cheese is a soft, mild-tasting fresh cheese made from milk and Cream. It is meant to be consumed fresh, Cream cheese is not naturally matured, so it differs from other soft cheeses such as Brie and Neufchâtel.
It is comparable in taste and production methods to Mascarpone and Boursin. Whether it’s in sweet, savoury, keto or healthy dishes, Cream cheese is one versatile ingredient.
When making Sweet and Creamy Pizza, I always recommend that you use what you have already, and avoid spending a ton of money. My recommended basic pizza tool list is…
Having a good dough mixer can make all the difference. You don’t want to be manually kneading forever, do you?
Having a nice oil jug to pour olive oil gives you a decadent edge. They don’t cost that much either!
I use quality wooden boards constantly when making pizzas, botth to carry dough balls and to use when slicing baked pizzas.
Mayonnaise (aka Mayo) typically contains Oil, eggs, and an acid, such as Vinegar or lemon Juice. There are a few healthy elements to Mayo, such as vitamin E, for heart health, and vitamin K, for blood clotting. It can also be made with healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Whilst not a typical ingredient, Mayonnaise goes really well with any Pizza that has savory toppings and Tomato sauce base. It’s great on a meatlovers, Pepperoni pizza or four cheese pizza.
