How many people does it serve?

This should be an easy question to answer, but in South Africa, it’s complicated, due to our colourful multi-cultural rainbow nation.

  1. In an Anglo Saxon household, each pizza/meal should feed between 4 to 6 guests.
  2. In a Mediterranean, Ethnic or African home it could feed as little as 1 to 3 people for a single meal as food needs to be experienced in large quantities.
  3. If you’re of Scandinavian extraction, each meal could last you a month!

Then we need to look at your emotional state, as that is a determining factor when dealing with quantities.

  1. Have you had a terrible day with your boss?
  2. Did you fight with your spouse?
  3. Are your kids driving you insane?
  4. Is your wi-fi slower than the Groot Trek?
  5. Is the lockdown getting to you?
  6. Did that hot guy from the gym eventually whatsapp you?
  7. How are you doing with those skinny jeans?
  8. Is your mother-in law doing what mother-in laws do?
  9. What season of Game of Thrones are you watching?

All these contributing factors could influence the amount you will choose to eat; Ranging from “just a slice/bite” to “call in the kitchen Calvary we’re going down babies”!

YOU WILL NEED

QUANTITIES OF INGREDIENTS

  • 2 x Mini Bases (one base per person)
  • 1 x tin artichokes, drained
  • 3 x tbsp. Olive oil
  • 2 x tsp. honey
  • ¼ x cup frozen peas
  • 1 x tbsp. fresh dill
  • 2 x tsp. sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • 1 x tsp. Dijon mustard or wholegrain mustard
  • 2 to 3 x parmesan cheese slices per mini base

METHOD

Let’s make your starter!

  1. In a mug add your olive oil, sherry vinegar, honey and mustard and mix until creamy and all the ingredients have fused together. Set-aside.
  2. Bring out your frozen mini pizza bases and top each base with 2 to 3 thin slices of parmesan cheese and place in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, preheated to 200˚.

And whilst they bake let’s start with our warm vinaigrette. This is so easy and beyond simple.

  1. Now in a hot non-stick pan add ¼ cup frozen peas and let them heat through.
  2. Add the tinned artichokes, which you’ve strained keeping some of the brine for flavour. You just need to heat them through, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. And lastly pour the vinaigrette into the pan and add the chopped fresh dill. Stir and coat for a minute just to heat the vinaigrette and your artichoke and pea topping is ready for plating.
  4. By now your pizza bases are done and you’re ready to top! First the artichokes, then the peas and lastly some vinaigrette to drizzle over the top and you’re ready to eat

A healthier alternative filled with so much gooey-deliciousness!
