What do you do when your local pizza outlet starts charging you exorbitant prices like a vendor trying to keep the Italian Mafioso and his own wife happy?
I’ll tell you. You take matters into your own hands.
I bought some frozen pizza bases, mushrooms, green peppers, cheese, onion, mince, smoked chicken, chilli and headed home. I then hauled even more ingredients (like garlic) out of the cupboard and fridge.
All got chopped up and loaded or sprinkled, as the family ordered (some were veg-fasting), onto the pizza bases and thrown into the oven at 220 degrees centigrade for about 25 minutes.
The photos below were taken before the oven stage.
We added Veri-Peri sauce before eating.
What do you do when your local chicken outlet starts charging a cock and a rooster for one small Portuguese Peri-Peri Chicken Burger? I’ll tell you. You take matters into your own hands.
Head along to your local Durban stores and buy:
Coat or marinade the fillets overnight with Veri Peri sauce, salt, black pepper, garlic, dried bay leafs and parsley.
Braai (barbecue) over a medium heat
Do not overcook
Clean and cut to size
Unpack the fresh rolls
Slice the rolls in half and spread the Flora on the bottom half. Spread the Trim and more Veri Peri generously on the top half
Layer chicken, cheese, onion, tomato, lettuce and even more Veri Peri to ensure the burger burns!
Serve on a plate and have burger no 2 lined up (the person eating no 1 will surely want another)
See what I mean?
