Ingredients

1 lb (450 g) lean ground beef
1 sweet red pepper, chopped
1/4 cup (60 mL) water
1/2 cup (125 mL) chili sauce
1 cup (250 mL) zucchini
1 cup (250 mL) eggplant
1/2 cup (125 mL) red onion
1 cup (250 mL) mushrooms
1 tbsp (15 mL) tomato paste
2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh basil, minced
1 lb (450 g) homemade or 
store-bought pizza dough
Cornmeal or 
flour
6 oz (180 g) cubed Canadian Cheddar cheese curds
1/4 cup (60 mL) grated Canadian Parmesan

Preparation

In a casserole on medium heat, cook ground beef thoroughly.

In a smaller casserole on medium heat, cook red pepper in water and chili sauce for 5 minutes or until tender. Purée in order to obtain a smooth sauce.

Meanwhile, dice zucchini, eggplant, onion and mushrooms. Add to beef and cook 4-5 minutes.

Incorporate red pepper sauce, tomato paste and basil. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 400oF (200oC).

On a work surface, sprinkle a bit of cornmeal or flour, then roll out the pizza dough using a rolling pin. Dough must be large enough to cover the bottom and sides of a skillet roughly 12˝ (30 cm) in diameter and 1˝ (2.5 cm) deep.

Place dough in skillet and fill with beef-vegetable mixture.

Top with Cheddar, fold in any dough exceeding skillet edge, and bake 30 minutes.

Sprinkle with Parmesan and bake another 5 minutes.

Serve with a spinach salad.
