If you’re South African, you know how we feel about sport! Whether we’re watching re-runs or matches played in empty stadiums, sport is in our blood and this easy pizza recipe is the answer to your half-time munchies!

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”!

FOR THIS QUICK SNACK IDEA YOU WILL NEED

SHOPPING LIST

  • Olive oil
  • Red wine vinegar
  • 1 x punnet parsley
  • 3 x garlic cloves or 1 x garlic bulb
  • 2 x medium red chillies, add extra if you like it hotter than hot
  • Dry oregano

QUANTITIES OF INGREDIENTS

  • ½ cup finely chopped parsley
  • 3 x garlic cloves, minced

The chimichurri dressing has it’s origins in Argentina and is used to drizlzle over meat dishes either as a cold sauce or a dip.

Our chimichurri dressing, is drizzled over the pizza, as the pizza comes out of the oven.

METHOD

It’s the easiest dressing to make. This recipe makes enough drizzle for 4 pizzas. If you choose to not want to make 4 of them, keep the remainder dressing in an air tight container in the fridge to use at a later stage.

  1. In a bowl place the crushed garlic, the diced red chillies, red wine vinegar and salt. Mix well and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  2. Now place your pizza in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes (pre-heated 200 Deg)
  3. Back to the bowl after 10 minutes, now add your finely chopped pasrely into the bowl together with your dried oregano and olive oil and mix well till all the ingredients have fused together.
  4. At this stage taste and tweak according to salt and chilli preferance. If you do add more, make sure to mix again.
  5. Bring out the pizzas from the oven and drizzle your chimichurri sauce over the pizza, generously!

And you’re ready to start watching the 2nd half of the game! Now that’s the SA spirit!
