Ingredients

  • 1 cup pizza sauce homemade or store-bought
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese grated or sliced
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onions chopped
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms sliced
  • Fresh basil leaves

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven at the highest temperature available — preferably 500 °F
  • Paint your flat pizza dough with the pizza sauce, covering the surface you'll place toppings on.
  • On a frying pan, cook the ground beef. The exact preparation and seasoning is up to you, this recipe doesn't need any particular ingredients in the beef. Just make sure the beef is cooked properly and try not to add any of the beef's fat onto the pizza.
  • Make a layer with the tomato slices. Don't make it too thick, if you finish making the layer and you still have tomato left, don't make a second layer.
  • Distribute the mushrooms, onions, cooked ground beef, and green onions on the tomato layer.
  • Cover everything with the mozzarella cheese, so when it melts, everything will have a layer of cheese over it.
  • Bake in the oven for ten minutes. Pay attention to the crust, don't let your pizza burn.
  • Place the fresh basil leaves on the pizza, as many as you'd like to have. Usually three or four small basil leaves will be enough.
