Pizza Bolognaise



We love Spaghetti Bolognaise, but I felt like a change from the normal recipe and especially the spaghetti.

Since the kids do their own thing over weekends, I am struggling a bit to come up with dinners for two. I know most recipes can easily be halved, but if it is only the two of us, I do not want to cook for hours in an already hot kitchen.

Roy is also, like me, happy to try out new foods, unlike the kids who like their normal food .. Dimitri even told me the other day that I should just make whatever I have been making over the years, and not surprise them suddenly with some outlandish dinner on their plates. {Which by the way, they usually enjoy and ask me to make again!}Kids..!!  I do not think I was ever like that, I ate what I was given and was thankful for it.

Anyhow, I used Frozen Pizza Bases but feel free to make your own recipe from scratch...

Pizza Bolognaise

{topping is enough for 3 large Pizzas}

Frozen Pizza Bases or make your own recipe
Oil, to fry
1 Onion, chopped
1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Red Bell Pepper, chopped
500g Ground Beef {Mince}
Salt & Pepper, to taste
3 TB Tomato Paste
1 t Sugar
2 t Paprika
Pinch Cayenne Pepper
1 1/2 t dried Origanum
Thick Tomato Sauce
Cheddar Cheese, grated - to top

1.) Pre-heat oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper.
2.) Saute the Onion, Red and Green Bell Peppers in a little Oil until soft - add the Ground Beef and cook until done - season to taste with the Salt and Pepper.
3.) Add the Tomato Paste, Sugar, Paprika, Cayenne Pepper and Origanum to the meat mixture - stir well and simmer 3 - 5 minutes.
4.) Spread Tomato Sauce on the Pizza bases - place on the baking sheets - add meat mixture to each and sprinkle over Cheddar Cheese - bake 15 - 20 minutes until the bases are done and the Cheddar has melted.

Serve immediately - although if there are leftovers ...it is delicious cold as well!

Later,


Linking up with these cool parties:
