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
You purchase a premade pizza base at your local store, or if you have time, make your own homemade dough following the simple steps below.
- Whisk the lukewarm water and yeast in a plastic or glass jug. Let the mixture stand for approx. five 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 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.
TIP: We have other dough recipes if you would like to try your hand at sourdough, poolish or more.
There’s no big secret method here, just use soy sauce as it is.
- There are two methods here.
- First is dip toppings in soy sauce before adding to pizza.
- Secondly, spread soy sauce direct on base.
- If you would rather thickened, add small dash of cornstarch or flour and water.
If your sauce is too thick and not spreading easily, a splash of olive oil or water can help to get the right consistency.
Preparing Tuna Pizza
Preheat your kitchen oven to approximately 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone (if you have one) or on a metal tray for the kitchen oven.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza oven, roll out to be smaller than your pizza peel.
First, spread the sauce around. This pizza calls for Soy Sauce. Spread the Soy Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or the blunt side of a knife.
You should start by adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.
The toppings to include on this pizza are;
This pizza is mouthwatering by itself, yet why not with another pizza variety?
Put the Tuna 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.

When making Tuna Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s the basic pizza tools that I always suggest…
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.
