For Italians, a pizza is an extension of bread. Pizza in some form has always been present throughout most of Italian history and every region has its own favourite recipe. Whole wheat pizza topped with sautéed leeks and four cheese flavours is a classic recipe. You can use any variety of cheese you like. An array of flavoured cheeses is available at gourmet stores like herb-flavoured cheese, paprika cheese, pepper cheese, garlic cheese. These can be made at home by mixing the desired flavouring ingredients like pepper, garlic etc. with mozzarella or cooking cheese. Flavoured cheese spreads can also be used.
