If you are like me and did not turn into a great chef or baker during this pandemic, but you still enjoy feeling inspired by your friends who suddenly have a wild passion for creating magic in the kitchen and you now want to have a go on some fun recipes, then keep reading because it is time for a braai pizza.

This recipe is in memory of my friend's dear grandmother; I never met her but I know she was extremely loving, kind and creative, as well as an amazing woman, from all the times he spoke of her. My friend recently lost his grandmother and this was a special first attempt of making pizza using her recipe.

I love a simple, Bacon, Avocado, and Feta Pizza; you can top the pizza with your favs. This is so easy to make and half the fun is because you get to pop the pizza on the braai.
