We South Africans love to braai up a unique mashup of flavours from all around the world. Cooking over hot coals in the great outdoors is the best way to spend a summer day with the family. Did you know that, using a braai that has a cover, you can build a pizza topped with grilled mushrooms and salad? Everyone loves this pizza because of its meat toppings and bright colours.

Grilled mushroom salad pizza suggestions

While making your own pizza dough from scratch is ideal, store-bought dough can still suffice in a pinch. Mushrooms may be cooked in a pan over the braai, making this a recipe that can be tried even when camping. Allow each person to customise his or her pizza to his or her individual tastes. Meats like bacon and chicken may be prepared at home and added if desired.

This grilled mushroom salad pizza dish is flavorful, colourful, and simple to create, making it ideal for family weekends or even camping.
