  • 8 oz minced ground lean beef
  • 1 oz jalapeno chillies in brine chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp beaten egg
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Scone Biscuit Base
  • Tomato Sauce
  • 1 oz canned pimiento sliced
  • 2 rashers streaky bacon cut into strips
  • 2 oz mature sharp Cheddar, grated
  • olive oil for drizzling
  • salt and pepper
  • chopped fresh parsley to garnish


  • Mix the beef, chillies, cumin seeds, parsley and egg together in a bowl and season. Form into 12 small meatballs. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan (skillet). Add the meatballs and brown all over. Remove with a perforated spoon or fish slice and drain on paper towels.
  • Roll out or press the dough into a 25 cm (10 inch) circle on a lightly floured work surface. Place on a greased baking sheet (cookie sheet) or pizza pan and push up the edge slightly to form a rim. Spread with the tomato sauce almost to the edge.
  • Arrange the meatballs on the pizza with the pimiento and bacon. Sprinkle over the cheese and drizzle with a little olive oil. Season.
  • Bake in a preheated oven, 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6, for 18 - 20 minutes, or until the edge is golden and crisp. Serve immediately, garnished with chopped parsley.
