Why we can’t resist a slice of pizza (with a spicy twist)

Pizza, the iconic Italian creation, has captured the hearts and appetites of people worldwide for centuries. From its humble beginnings in Naples, Italy, in 1889, to its current status as the most beloved dish globally, pizza’s journey is a tale of culinary delight. Today, over 5 billion pizzas are devoured worldwide every year, with the classic Margherita pizza being the most popular choice.

But did you know that Pizza was part of the origin story of your favourite chilli oil?

That’s right! Inspired by chili oil in Paris, Ken Kinsey-Quick and Adi Meintjes created Banhoek Chilli Oil (BCO) in South Africa to elevate the pizza experience as well as provide the perfect bite of flavour to any dish.

So, what is it about pizza that keeps us coming back for more?

Banhoek and pizza is a match made in heaven

BCO adds a thrilling burst of flavour to your pizza, enhancing every bite with a spicy kick that leaves you craving more. It’s the secret ingredient that transforms a regular pizza into a gourmet delight, taking your taste buds on a thrilling journey.

Variety that satisfies everyone

Another one of the reasons we adore pizza is its incredible variety. Whether you’re a fan of thin or thick crust, a meat lover or a vegetarian, there’s a pizza for every palate. You can even go classic with a simple cheese pizza or get adventurous with toppings like pineapple, banana or chocolate.

It’s an all-day delight

Pizza has no time restrictions. It’s the breakfast of champions, a lunchtime hero, and a dinner superstar. Late-night cravings? Pizza’s got you covered. It’s just as incredible cold, straight from the fridge, as it is hot and fresh out of the oven. It’s the anytime, anywhere food that’s always ready to please.

The ultimate social food

Pizza has a unique way of bringing people together. It’s the centrepiece of parties, game nights, and family gatherings alongside your bottle of Banhoek Chilli Oil. Sharing a pizza is an experience that creates memories and strengthens bonds. Who can say no to a slice while watching the game with friends?

There’s no need for utensils

Pizza is the greatest finger food – no fancy utensils or dinner etiquette is needed. Just pick up a slice and drizzle with your Banhoek Chilli Oil and enjoy!

Pizza is a universal favourite

While pizza has Italian roots, it has evolved into a global phenomenon. You can find unique variations worldwide, from New York’s classic slices to deep-dish wonders of Chicago and exotic toppings of Japan. Much like our Banhoek Chilli Oil, Pizza transcends borders.

So next time you’re enjoying a hot, cheesy, and customised pizza, don’t forget to add that perfect bite of flavour with BCO to make for an unforgettable culinary delight.
