Meat Lover’s Pizza

Serves 4



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.
