• 1 kg lean minced beef (makes 2 meatza)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan, grated
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup parsley,
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 x tins (400g) chopped tomatoes, drained
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 x ball (250g) mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 1 cup basil leaves


Preheat oven to 180°C conventional (160°C fan-forced). Line two pizza trays with baking paper and set aside. In a bowl, combine the minced beef, parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, parsley and eggs.

Mix well and divide between pizza trays. Press into a pizza base shape.

In a bowl, combine the garlic, tomatoes, olive oil, and oregano. Spoon over each pizza base. Top with mozzarella slices. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

There will be a lot of liquid on the tray. Drain this liquid off and transfer to a plate. Top with fresh basil leaves and serve.

Serving Suggestions


  • The meat contains a lot of moisture that you will need to drain off after it is cooked.
  • I like to serve this with a salad as it’s a little too much meat to have alone.
  • You can choose different toppings instead of the tomato and mozzarella we use. Try adding salami, ham or even mushrooms and olives for a variation.
