Braai pizza

Getaway (South Africa) - - FOOD BRAAI PIZZA -

Dust a clean ter­ra­cotta plate (bought from your lo­cal nurs­ery) with coarse white flour, maize meal or po­lenta – this will al­low the pizza base to slide more eas­ily onto it and pre­vent it from stick­ing to the plate dur­ing cook­ing, and add a nutty flavour.

Pre­heat the plate on a braai grid over medium coals. En­sure it’s pip­ing hot to get a well-bub­bled and crispy crust on your pizza.

As­sem­ble each pizza on a well-floured wooden board.

First spread the Napoli sauce (3 ta­ble­spoons per pizza) over the base – not right up to the edges, as you want them crispier. Brush the edges with olive oil to en­sure a golden crust.

Add the top­pings of your choice (see left).

Slide the pizza quickly onto the hot ter­ra­cotta plate. Place on the grid to cook for 12 to 15 min­utes, ro­tat­ing the plate ev­ery few min­utes for even cook­ing.
