In South Africa, we love combining different cuisines to make our own special dishes and often we use a braai. There’s nothing like some outdoor cooking on the open coals while enjoying the day with your family. Did you know that you can make this grilled mushroom salad pizza on your braai, especially if it has a lid? It’s a meaty, colourful pizza that everybody can enjoy.

Grilled mushroom salad pizza tips

If you have a pizza dough recipe, homemade is always better but you can still use store-bought dough too. Cooking the mushrooms in a skillet on the braai is simple enough that you can even try it while camping. Give everybody the option to choose what they want on their pizza and assemble their own unique flavours. You can also make your own meats like bacon and chicken to add if you want to.
