Enter the “baozza”, the brainchild of American consultant Alex Cree. 

What exactly is the baozza? It is a bun stuffed with popular pizza toppings such as tomato, cheese and ham, then steamed as usual. Sounds delicious!

Malay Mail reported that the idea came to Cree when he was on a business trip in Southern China. According to Reuters Televison, Cree said,

“We were talking about the idea of maybe combining bao with more traditional American flavors like burger and different things and somebody said ‘pizza baozi.'”

“I quipped bao-zza as a joke but the more I thought about it, the more I thought there might be something to this,” he added.

After he went back to the United States, Cree started to experiment with recipes until he finally hit on the perfect recipes for his baozza. He decided to quit his job and then moved to China in 2016 to start up his food business in the basement of one of Beijing’s shopping malls.

Currently, Baozza comes in four flavours, Margherita, Meat Lover, BBQ Chicken, and Hawaiian Jalapeno, where two buns will cost you 20 yuan (RM12.80).

At a publicity event in Beijing recently, Owen Zheng tried one of the baozzas and said the combination of spices and chewy cheese tasted great.

He added, “It’s the first time I’ve ever had a baozi like this and I think it’s not bad.”

However, this new food item was met with askance by traditional baozi vendors.

“I don’t think it’s going to become very popular in China,” said baozi shop owner Zhan Mimi.

I don’t know about you, but I sure feel like trying one!
