Scooters launches the Makhulu pizzaAugust 25th, 2010 by H&R | Categories: food, restaurants, tourism
Scooters Pizza has launched the Makhulu pizza – at 40cm it is the largest ever to be offered commercially in the country. The new pizza is available countrywide and costs R69.
CEO of Taste Holdings’ food division, Christo Calitz, says that the 40cm pizza is a major saving for families and offers a pizza choice not previously available.
“Pizza lovers often want to share their pizzas and the Makhulu is the perfect food complement for a family. It is 80% more than the standard large pizza and could effectively feed a family of four. You would be hard-pressed to find better value for money anywhere else in South Africa,” says Calitz.
“The pizza also serves as a great catering tool and can be used to satisfy the hunger of a number of people at large gatherings such as meetings, study sessions and even parties. With almost a kilogram of pizza, you are sure to make an impression.”
The Makhulu pizza is cut into eight slices and is available in five variations: American-style pepperoni, chicken barbeque, bacon and cheese, feta and mozzarella, or plain margarita. There are also halaal options available.
Customers are able to swap any topping, choose from a range of bases and add extra toppings, allowing them to build their own pizza.
Calitz expects the 40cm pizza promotion to offer a wider variety of pizza and places the fast food outlet in a favourable position, as no other pizza franchise can currently provide this option to their consumers.
“The Makhulu pizza is a unique concept, one that the South African pizza market has been craving for some time. Undoubtedly, this new offering will become immensely popular, and brings us a step closer in our ongoing attempts towards achieving ‘Worldwide Pizza Domination’,” he enthuses.
