A delicious Pizza Bologna with tomato sauce, ricotta, red pepper, onion, garlic, lean ground beef, tomatoes, mushrooms, Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese. Prepared by the Happy Chief Cook.

A delicious spicy Pizza Bologna, with a generous topping of approximately 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) thick.
The Pizza Bologna is quite mighty.

Preparation time: 45 minutes.
Serves: 2 to 4.


1 ready made pizza crust,
2 tablespoons olive oil,
80 grams of mushrooms (sliced),
1 small onion sliced,
125 grams of lean ground beef,
1 clove garlic (very thinly sliced),
2 tomatoes (cut in quarters and then into thin slices),
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning,
100 to 150 grams Ricotta,
50 grams of freshly grated Parmesan cheese,
1 teaspoon salt,
4-season pepper to taste,
1 heaping tablespoon of strained tomatoes,
1 red chilli (thinly sliced).


Put all ingredients ready.

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees (convection oven 225 degrees Celsius).

Place the pizza crust on a lightly greased baking tray.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a wok and fry the onion rings 3 to 4 minutes until they start to color.

Spoon the lean ground beef, red pepper and garlic through the onion, and cook over high heat in about 5 minutes until golden brown and loose.

Turn the heat to low and add the chestnut mushrooms, vine tomatoes, Italian seasoning, tomato paste, 4-season pepper and the salt.
Let the sauce simmer approximately 10 minutes.
There should be very little liquid remaining.

Brush the pizza crust with Ricotta, and spread the sauce over the cream cheese (the Ricotta, along the edge is to remain visible).
Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the pizza.

Bake the crust about 10 minutes on the lowest rung in the convection oven.
Be careful in the last minutes that the edge of the piza crust don't turns black.
As soon as the cheese has melted, the pizza can be removed from the oven.

Remove the pizza from the oven and cut it into 8 slices.
