WHAT WE’RE MAKING: PULL-APART CHRISTMAS TREE

This festive season, your kids have to try-out our pizzinis pull-apart Christmas Tree!

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”!

QUANTITIES OF INGREDIENTS

METHOD

So, you’re going to need one box of Ital pizzas Margherita pizzinis and don’t forget to use the baking paper provided in the box, under the pizzinis, when you bake them.

  1. Take your 2 square pizzinis and sprinkle the diced red peppers onto each individual Pizzini.
  2. Now sprinkle each Pizzini with a pinch of Italian herb mix.
  3. And in the oven they go for 10 to 12 minutes, pre-heated to 220 degrees. And 10 to 12 minutes later your pizzinis are ready.

Now, wait for them to cool down and then separate each Pizzini and start making your Christmas pull apart Christmas tree. You’ll be using all 32 pizzinis, so no snacking.

  1. First the base with 4 pizzinis. And then start with the first row of 7 pizzinis, 6 pizzinis, 5 Pizzinis and so on until you get to one Pizzzini right at the top.
  2. And lastly, once you’ve created your Christmas tree, sprinkle the chopped fresh basil, across the surface of the tree as your tinsel.

And you’re done! Serve with any dip of your choice:

  • Left-over pasta sauce
  • Good old Chutney
  • Sweet chili sauce
  • Or dare we say it, tomato sauce.

And there you have your pull apart Pizzini Christmas tree. A wonderfully fun and interactive way of playing in the kitchen this festive season!
