We all know that there’s really no need for a pizza day because, well, who does not love a good pizza (nearly) every day?
But hey, since it’s 2021 and we’re in need of any reason to celebrate, we’re here to tell you that 9 February is National Pizza Day.
Even better, we’ve got a few ideas that will make super delicious much healthier too! We think the Meatza pizza in particular is a winner with its mushroom and mince base – especially for those who love anything carb clever!
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Difficulty: Takes a bit of effort
500g fresh mushrooms, finely chopped (or minced in a food processor)
2tbsp coconut oil
500g beef mince
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 cup Parmesan cheese
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
pizza toppings of your choice – we like mozzarella and peppers
Heat the oven to 220°C. Fry the mushrooms in the coconut oil, stirring often, until golden brown, about 5-8 minutes. You may have to do this in batches.
Using your hands, thoroughly combine the mushrooms with the beef, onion, garlic, egg, Parmesan, salt and pepper.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper, or use a large round pizza stone.
Flatten the meat and mushroom mixture onto the paper, about 1cm thick. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
Add the toppings of your choice and return to the oven for 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and golden. Cut into slices and serve with a salad
