  • 1 bread dough base
  • 3/4 oz fresh yeast or 1 1/2 tsp dried or easy-blend yeast
  • 4 floz tepid water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 oz plain all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt

for the topping

  • 1 small onion sliced thinly
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 oz lean minced ground beef
  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 7 oz can red kidney beans drained
  • Tomato Sauce
  • 1 oz jalapeho chillies sliced
  • 2 oz Mozzarella sliced thinly
  • 2 oz mature sharp Cheddar or Monterey Jack, grated
  • olive oil for drizzling
  • salt and pepper
  • chopped parsley to garnish


  • For the deep-pan dough base, use the same method as the Bread Dough Base recipe.
  • Roll out or press the dough, using a rolling pin or your hands, into a 23 cm/9 inch circle on a lightly floured work surface. Place on a large greased baking sheet (cookie sheet) or pizza pan and push up the edge to form a small ridge. Cover and leave to rise slightly for about 10 minutes.
  • Fry the onion, garlic and (bell) pepper gently in the oil for 5 minutes until soft but not browned. Increase the heat slightly and add the beef, chilli and cumin. Fry for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and stir in the kidney beans. Season well.
  • Spread the tomato sauce over the dough almost to the edge and top with the meat mixture.
  • Top with the sliced chillies and Mozzarella and sprinkle over the grated cheese. Drizzle with a little olive oil and season.
  • Bake in a preheated oven, 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6, for 18 - 20 minutes, or until the crust is golden. Serve immediately sprinkled with chopped parsley.
