How do I make this Mexican Meatball Pizza?

Step 1

For the dough:

Make up to packet instructions & allow 30 mins for the dough to prove. We make up the whole pack then weigh out 70g balls of dough – the ones we don’t use we freeze.

Roll as thin as you can onto a piece of baking parchment – you may need to spray your rolling pin with Low Calorie Cooking Spray to prevent sticking.

When the dough is finished proving, place on an oven tray and cook in the oven for 20 minutes until cooked.

Step 2

For the tomato sauce:

Throw all ingredients into a pan, bring up to the heat then turn down and simmer for 30 minutes stirring often.

Once cooked attack with a stick blender, or blitz in a food processor until smooth.

Place into a sterilised jar until ready for use. Will least a week in the fridge, or you can freeze it. Perfect for batch cooking!

Step 3

For the Mexican chipotle meatballs:

Put all meatball ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Form into small balls & set aside in the fridge.

Step 4

For the Onion and Chive Dressing:

Mix all ingredients well & place into a food bag. Chill until ready for use. When you’re ready, snip a corner off the bag and drizzle over pizza

Step 5

Remove the pizza base from the oven. Place a small amount of tomato sauce onto it and spread to cover.

Start with your Mexican Meatballs – as little or as many as you like. We used about 100g of meatballs per pizza.

Next your peppers and onions should be added. Then your cheese – make sure to distribute it evenly. On top of that dot around some fresh tomato pieces. Place some onions on the top – not too many though, you don’t want them to burn.

Step 6

Place in an oven pre-heated to 200°C for 12 minutes. Remove and drizzle over the onion and chive dressing & sprinkle with torn coriander!

  1. There are a few makes of wholemeal pitta bread you can use as a heathy extra B . What about using them if you are stuck for time . Would you suggest cooking them in oven first or putting topping on and bungling the lot in in one go . X

  2. Sorry if this sounds pedantic but, in the preamble you say that 65g of dough cooks up to 60g but in the actual recipe you say 70g of dough. Which is right please? Thanks.
