I am loving my mincer from Eddingtons. I love it so much that when I get a spare second to think I try to come up with a new recipe using freshly minced meat or clean meat as I like to call it. It’s an appropriate name as the minced meat doesn’t have any bulking items just gorgeous clean and healthier mince. By all means add fat if you wish but the smell and taste of fat has never really appealed to me. Anyway I digress. I decided to use another super product from Eddingtons which I simply adore and wouldn’t be without and I highly recommended. In fact this item is so good I think I would be devastated if it broke. Anyone have any ideas what it might be? Yes you guessed it!! It’s my fabulous pizza stone. I have wowed numerous guests with my fabulous pizza creations which I am starting to write down so I can share with you. Who doesn’t like fresh homemade pizza. My pizza stone is getting a lot of action as of late and has been an invaluable tool for creating homemade pizzas that far surpass the shop bought type and are just as good as any you will find in a restaurant.
My first attempt to combine both my mincer and pizza stone resulted in a fabulous chipotle beef pizza topped with a fresh tomato salsa. How delicious does that sound!!!! This is a healthy option as I removed all the fat from the beef and as olive oil has been used it boosts your good fats. The various ingredients help boost the immune system, improve the condition of your skin, boost you vitamin C and zinc intake that help you fight off infections and sooooo much more.
For the pizza base follow my dough recipe ‘here.’
For the beef topping
210g sirloin steak
1 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
2tsp chipotle paste
1 clove of garlic, chopped
2tsp tomato puree
2tsp soft brown sugar
For the salsa
1tsp jalepenos in brine drained and chopped
1 medium tomato
1 white onion
You will need extra flour for the pizza base when you make it into a large round.
Olive oil for drizzling.
Place the pizza stone in the oven about 30 minutes before you will be cooking at 210 degrees.
Make your dough and allow to prove for about 3 hours in a warm place.
Make the beef topping by mincing the beef (check out the fabulous mincer I got from Eddingtons).
Place the mince in a bowl, add in the chopped tomatoes, chipotle paste, garlic, tomato puree and sugar and mix.
Take the pizza stone out of the oven and place on a heat proof surface. I put mine on my stove. Place the dough on the stone, cover your hands in flour and press out the dough until you have a large round that almost meets the edges of the stone. If you need more flour it isn’t a problem and stops the dough sticking to your hands.
Once the dough has been prepared cover it with the beef topping
and place in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
Whilst the pizza is cooking make the salsa. Chop the tomatoes, onion, jalepenos and coriander. Throw them into a bowl and mix.
When the pizza is cooked through remove from the oven and sprinkle over the salsa.
Drizzle with a little olive oil.
Cut and serve.
