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

INGREDIENTS

  • Mozzarella grated (aprox100gr)
  • Crumbled Gorgonzola (100 gr)
  • 2 x pears sliced
  • Oli
  • 2 x tbsp. butter
  • 1 x medium red onion
  • 1 x tbsp. white sugar
  • 8 x slivers of parma ham
  • 1 x tbsp. fresh thyme sprigs  
  • 1x Dr. Oetker Ital Pizza Familia Margherita

METHOD

  1. Firstly, take your frozen pizza and top with the mozzarella and the gorgonzola cheese. First Mozzarella and then gorgonzola. Distribute cheese evenly.
  2. Once done, place the pizza into a pre-heated oven (200 deg) for 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Now, in a medium size frying pan, drizzle some olive oil and heat (medium heat)
  4. Add your butter and allow to dissolve with the oil.
  5. Once fused together, add your red onions and slowly caramelise. Once done, decant from the pan and set aside. Do not clean the pan, we will be using it again for the next step.
  6. Place pan back onto heat and drizzle some more olive oil together with a tablespoon of butter.
  7. Once melted and fused together, add your sugar until it has dissolved into the oil and butter.
  8. Once dissolved, add your pears into the pan and caramelise. About 2 to 3 minutes per side and set aside while you get your pizza.
  9. By this stage your pizza should be ready. Remove from oven and let’s start dressing this baby!
  10. Using tongs, place the caramelised onions onto the pizza, making sure you have distributed evenly across the surface of pizza.
  11. Now, slice your pizza either into 6 or 8 pieces. If you’re greedy, you don’t need to slice. Just gooi all for yourself!
  12. Now, place the caramelised pears onto each slice. Generously.
  13. Bring in your parma ham and using tongs or your hands, place one sliver onto each slice. If you want more, just go for it!
  14. And lastly, sprinkle with sprigs of fresh thyme to garnish the pizza…and time to eat babies!
