Theo was part of the Inaugural Pizza Team that won the America Plate in 2004 .Australia and pizza chains are about to change the way Pizza is seen in China. Because of the low dairy product in China consumption of pizza hasn’t been the GO in China. But the Chinese government is going out to change that too with the increase in dairy product quota imported into China, lifting dairy quota. Australians are going to see and show case what has made the Australians the most sort after creative pizza chefs in the World after taking the world title of the Americas plate for two years straight.
