INGREDIENTS (makes 4 pizzas)

1 carrot

1 celery stick

3 mushrooms

½ courgette, peeled and grated

1 shallot 

1 clove garlic

1 tbsp olive oil 

200g minced beef

1 tbsp tomato puree

750ml passata

1 tsp sugar

Salt and pepper

4 wholemeal tortilla bases

2 mozzarella balls

100g Cheddar cheese, grated

12 cherry tomatoes, halved 

In a food  processor, add the carrot, celery stick, mushroom, courgette, shallot, garlic and pulse until a smooth texture. 

Drizzle the olive oil into a large sauté pan, add the minced beef and cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes.

Add the puréed vegetables, tomato purée and the tomato passata and simmer for 10-15 minutes until reduced and thickened and the meat cooked through.

Remove from the heat.

Preheat the oven to 220˚C/fan 200°C/gas 7.

Place the tortilla bases onto a non-stick baking tray. Divide and spread the tomato and beef mixture and add some mozzarella and Cheddar cheese, along with a few cherry tomatoes. 

Cook in the oven for 8-10 minutes until the cheese melts and bubbles a little bit. Slice into wedges and serve.
