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

  • 1 x Ital Pizza Classic Bases
  • 1 x bottle Olive oil
  • 1 x red onion, medium size
  • 2-3 x garlic cloves
  • 1 x bottle or sachet red chilli flakes
  • 4 x stalks rosemary
  • 1 x large potato
  • Salt and coarse pepper
  • 1 x micro/baby herb punnet
  •  

QUANTITIES OF INGREDIENTS

  • A drizzle of olive oil to sauté onions
  • ½ a cup of olive oil to fry the potatoes
  • 1 x medium red onion, sliced
  • 1 x large potato, thinly slices and skin removed
  • 2-3 x garlic cloves minced (1 tsp. crushed garlic)
  • 1 x chilli flakes ( if you want it stronger add to your taste. You will use ½ the tsp. to sauté the onions and ½ the tsp. to fry the onions))
  • 1 x tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 x stalks of fresh rosemary ( not cut, off the stalk for top of pizza)
  • Salt & coarse pepper to taste
  • A sprinkle of micro herbs to garnish

METHOD

  1. Firstly, in a large size pan, heat-up a drizzle of olive oil.
  2. Once heated add the sliced onions, the teaspoon of crushed garlic, ½ a tsp. of chilli flakes and one teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary and sauté till the onions become soft and

Once done, decant onions into a bowl but do not clean the pan. We want all that left over flavour for the potatoes.

  1. Now in that same pan, add your half a cup of olive oil, the remainder chilli flakes, and the fresh rosemary pulled from the stalks and shake the pan. As the oil heats-up you will start to smell the gorgeous aroma from the chili flakes and rosemary.
  2. Now, add the thinly sliced potatoes and fry till golden brown in colour. About 6 to 7 minutes each side.

And your potatoes are all done.

  1. Now take your frozen pizza base and using the oil from the fried potatoes, coat the base of the pizza with a brush.
  2. Then, place your potato slices onto the base, working from the outside in, just overlapping each other. Make sure you decant all the rosemary, which gives the pizza its flavour.
  3. Now add the caramelised onions and some additional sprigs of fresh rosemary to garnish and in the oven it goes. You know by now! 10 -12 minutes in a 200 deg. pre heated oven.
  4. And 12 minutes later, out the oven, cut into as many slices as you like, sprinkle with some micro herbs and you’re ready to eat!
