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 SIMPLE PIZZA RECIPE YOU WILL NEED

SHOPPING LIST

QUANTITIES OF INGREDIENTS

  • 1 x ITAL PIZZA FAMILIA Margherita
  • ½ x red onion, sliced into circles
  • 1 x red chilli, chopped in oil
  • 4 x tinned pineapple rings. (You can use fresh ones)
  • 5 to 6 slices proschitto
  • Handful of rocket

METHOD

  1. Preheat your oven to 200˚ C.
  2. Take your 4 pineapple slices and cut them in half. You can use fresh ones. If you would like to sear them on a grill pan prior to placing on your pizza, you can. Add some olive oil on in a frying pan and place each slice for 4 to 6 minutes each side, until you see the desired charred lines.
  3. Remove the pizza from its packaging and place on your counter. Place the 8 pieces of pineapple evenly around the pizza, so that when you slice your pizza, there is a pineapple on each of the 8 slices.
  4. Now add the red onions and drizzle with the chopped chillies in oil. How much chilli depends on how hot you like your life!
  5. And in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
  6. Once baked, add your prosciutto by gently folding it onto itself. You can tear each slice into 2.
  7. Lastly add about 6 to 8 pieces of rocket for that delicious peppery crunch to your pineapple pizza.

And your Ode to the Pineapple Gods is ready. Slice and eat up. And if you are a pineapple on a pizza hater, just remember that you put ketchup on your pasta, so people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw pineapple rings!
