Good Morning!

Did you know that the world’s favourite comfort food, Pizza is possibly an adaptation of the Chinese Scallion pancake?

According to an old Chinese story, Marco Polo once asked a chef from Naples to make scallion pancakes when he was in Italy. After a day without success, Marco Polo suggested the filling be put on top rather than inside the dough which the chef improvised later by adding cheese and other ingredients and thus formed the modern day pizza.
