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

  • 1 x Quattro Formaggi frozen pizza
  • 2 x tbsp. salted butter or 3 cubes of butter
  • A drizzle of olive oil so that the butter doesn’t burn
  • 2-3 x galric cloves minced
  • Button mushrooms or an assortment of mushrooms, sliced (aprox. 8)
  • 1½ tbsp. fresh thyme or 1 x flat tsp. dry thyme (dry is always stronger)
  • ½ tsp. dry oregano
  • 1 x handful of grated white cheddar or grated mozzarella
  • Salt & pepper to taste

METHOD

  1. In a medium pan, melt the butter. Once melted, add a drizzle of olive oil. This will prevent the butter from burning. You can only use olive oil instead of butter if you would prefer.
  2. Once the butter-oil had heated, add your minced garlic and stir.
  3. Add your sliced mushrooms, make sure they’re not finely sliced or they will shrivel up when you sauté them.
  4. Add your dry or fresh thyme as well as your oregano. Salt and pepper to taste and mix until all the ingredients are beautifully coated in the butter-oil. If you feel that the pan is drying out, at this point you can add a drop of olive oil. But not too much as it will make the mushrooms very oily.
  5. The mushrooms will continue to bake in the oven once you’ve placed them on the pizza, so remove them from the heat whilst they’re still firm, before they’re completely cooked.
  6. Remove your frozen pizza from the box and place onto your work surface.
  7. Place half the mushrooms directly onto the frozen pizza base. Make sure you distribute them evenly.
  8. Bring out your grated mozzarella and sprinkle a handful over the pizza. Then, place the remaining mushrooms onto the mozzarella and place in a pre-heated oven (200 Deg) for 10 to 12 minutes or to your personal liking.
  9. Remove from oven and slice into 4 or 8 pieces. That is cheese heaven right there!

Now all you have to do, is decide on what you’re going watch! Good luck fighting for the remote control!
