The Australian variety is a pizza that is usually topped with a base of barbecue sauce, mozzarella cheese, chunks of minced bacon, often ham, and some eggs. The pie can sometimes be enriched with the addition of onions, garlic, mushrooms or hot peppers. At the same time, in Australia, pizzerias across the country started using fresher ingredients and toppings in their pizzas. Prawns and salmon were some common options introduced during this period, as were eggplant, feta cheese, eggs, and spinach.
These innovative Australian chefs began to focus on creating unique flavor profiles with their cakes, as well as on integrating fresh, high-quality ingredients.
