Baking a pizza in China

Okay, I don't know from where to start. I have never baked any pizzas, but I have bought 3 kilos of cheese on taobao.. as you can imagine, that is a big piece of cheese. I ate a kilo and others two left in my fridge. 

Cheese cannot lie in fridge forever and be fresh, so I decided to bake a pizza.

I found a simple cookie online, but some of the ingredients are unavailable in China, therefore I replaced them.

The cookie

  • Yeast dough.
  • Cheese - 250g.
  • Smoked Sausage, replaced with fresh pork -  300g.
  • Tomatoes - 2 pieces.
  • Onions - 2 pieces.
  • Red pepper - a half of a piece.
  • Mayonnaise - a couple of spoons.
  • Marjoram, black hot pepper, dill and other spicery which you like.

Step 1 - the dough

0.5 l of milk, 2 tea spoons of yeast, 0.5 glass of warm watter, a spoon of sugar, 0.5 glass of sunflower oil and some flour to make the dough be soft, but not liquid.

When the dough is ready put it onto your baking dish and roll it in a very thin layer.

Step 2 - the spices

Put yur mayonnaise over the dough and strew it with marjoram.

Step 3 - the cheese

Grate a half of your cheese and put it onto your dish.

Step 4 - the filling

Cut your tomatoes, onions and meat into slices. The meat should be dry and without sinews. Try to cut it as thin as possible.

Put all of these onto your pizza in order meat-tomato-onion. Remember, tomatoes should be above onion. In the end it will look like scale of a fish.

Step 5 - before the end

Cut your pepper into small pieces and put it over your pizza. Add some spices, such as hot pepper and dill.

Step 6 - cheese again

Grate the rest of your cheese and put it onto the pizza.

Step 7 - the oven

Bake you pizza in a hot oven, it took about an hour and 20 minutes for me. The temperature was 180 degrees for the first 30 minutes and 220 degrees for the rest of the time.

Step 8 - enjoy

Cut your fresh baked pizza and enjoy it with a bottle of beer.

The original cokie could be found here:

Mayonnaise I found in a superstore; marjoram and dill was bought on taobao.

I couldn't find white (yellow) onion, so I used usual Chinese violet onion.

P.S. Sorry for my poor English.
