Meat Lover’s Pizza
500g bread dough
flour for dusting
25ml tomato paste
50ml tomato puree
2ml mixed Italian herbs
10ml olive oil
½ onion, finely chopped
250g lean beef mince
250g button mushrooms, finely chopped
100ml tomato puree
100ml red kidney beans
½ punnet button mushrooms, sliced
100g feta cheese, cubed
100g cheese, grated
fresh rocket to serve
1 Roll the bread dough out to form a pizza base, using the flour to dust. Place the base onto a baking tray.
2 Mix the tomato paste, tomato puree and mixed herbs together in a small bowl and spread generously over the base.
3 Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the onion and fry until glossy. Add the mince and fry until browned and then add the mushroom. Cook until all the water has been evaporated.
4 Add the tomato puree and the beans and allow to cook together for 10 minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
5 When the meat is cooked, place teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the pizza base along with the sliced mushrooms, feta and grated cheese.
6 Place into a pre-heated 190°C oven for 20 minutes or until the pizza is cooked through and golden.
7 To serve, pile generous amounts of rocket onto the pizza. Serve while still warm.
Cooks tip: Buy ready-made dough from your supermarket for the pizza base.
