Hunger has been known to do strange things to people; sometimes they can become overly dramatic, wailing that they’ll spontaneously combust if they don’t get a sandwich, and sometimes they crack completely and start drinking bottles of ketchup or eating margarine out of the tub with a spoon. Save yourself from munchies-induced madness and pay R35 for one of six pizzas off the menu at Yiayia’s.
Undoubtedly, one of the most difficult things about going out for pizza is picking the toppings. Even though you know the hot, melted cheese sliding around on a tomato-sauce slathered canvas of dough is going to be delicious, deciding how to add that flavour can be more difficult than planning for world peace. Luckily, the culinary geniuses at Yiayia’s have masterfully crafted a selection of pizzas so magical, that any set of toppings will have your taste-buds singing tiny choruses of hallelujahs.
A popular grazing spot on Stanley Street, all pizzas are prepared
the genuine La Bella Italia old-village way; stone-ground, thin-crusted and prepared
with herbs and olive oil. Whichever toppings you decide to pick from the
stunningly long list will be sure to inspire outbursts of grazie, and molto
gustoso from your belly. The fresh toppings come in selections designed to
please both the daring designers and those who prefer their pizza without a
kitchen-worth of flavours – though even the more traditional tastes aren’t the
type you’re likely to run into at your local Slice-Away. Whether you go for the
daring hummus, green pepper, ham and onions, seafood pizza with shrimp,
calamari and mussels or tomato, mozzarella and herb and roasted veg with feta
and olives for the herbivores and herbivoyeurs, your taste-buds will be
thanking you once your meal is in sight.
