If you eat meat, like pizza and own taste buds, you’ll love this. There’s not much else to say really, it was easy and quick to make, filled my kitchen with amazing smells and filled my tummy with happiness. Win, win, win!

Basically it is a pizza in which the base consists of a giant flattened burger. You cook this alone, add the toppings and cook for a couple more minutes and you’re done. No flour at all and so no glutens.

Making the base (recipe makes one average size pizza but this feeds 2):

400g ground beef

1 egg

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

salt and pepper to taste

herbs of your choice – oregano is an obvious one when it comes to pizza, but you can also consider others such as rosemary, thyme or coriander

Set your oven to heat at 200 degrees Celsius with fan on. Wash your hands very well and then mush it up together lightly. Be careful not to overwork the meat as this will compact it too much and alter the texture of the end result. Spread out with your hands on a baking sheet and flatten to desired thickness, ideally a couple of mm thick.
