Jan Braai’s pizza
Whether you are craving it, want to impress guests or are on a road trip and want to do a quick scenic and hassle-free braai, this is a nice trick to have up your sleeve.
Light a fire and wait till the coals are the same heat that you would braai your braaibroodjies on – in other words, medium heat.
Place the two pizzas on top of each other with the fillings facing to the inside. If you want to add anything extra, do so beforehand.
Place the pizza ‘sandwich’ in your hinged grid, close the grid tightly and braai the pizza, turning it often, the same as you would do with a braaibroodjie. You want the outside to be toasted and crispy and the cheese on the inside to be completely melted.
Once you have achieved the perfect pizza, take it off the grid, slide it onto a wooden board and cut into slices. Serve immediately.
