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 RECIPE YOU WILL NEED

SHOPPING LIST

QUANTITIES OF INGREDIENTS

  • Ristorante Quattro Formaggi
  • ½ red onion thinly sliced
  • ½ Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 x garlic clove, minced
  • 150g – 200g gorgonzola
  • ½ grated mozzarella
  • 3 – 4 preserved figs, halved or quartered
  • 5-6 rocket leaves
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

METHOD

  1. In a mixing bowl add your balsamic vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic and brown sugar. Mix until the sugar has dissolved, it does take a bit of time.
  2. Now add the sliced red onions, ensure they are coated with the dressing. Let it sit for 10 mins.
  3. Bring out the frozen quattro formaggio and layer with half the onions, half the gorgonzola (you can tear it) and half the mozzarella.
  4. Layer again with the remaining onions and cheese.
  5. Top with the halved or quartered (not sliced, as if they are too thin they’ll dry out in the oven) figs by tucking them into the cheese.
  6. In the oven for 10-12 mins at 200 degrees. When done garnish with rocket, which you can drizzle with olive oil beforehand if you like.

And dinner is done! It’s creamy, it’s crispy, and it’s a pleasure!
