Ground Beef and Za'tar Pizza

Ground Beef and Za'tar Pizza

After a while I started looking for other pizza toppings, so I discovered the fantastic taste of Pizza 4 FORMAGGI , and now I present you a pizza with a Lebanese twist. This is not a real Lebanese pizza, I adapted it and used simplified ingredients - but the ground meat and Za'tar will give it an interesting flavour.

I recommend you to try it - it is very tasty and different from a standard pizza, maybe it is like a meat pie.

Helper recipes

2 tbsp
1 piece
1 serving


Ground beef meat
400 g
Green pitted olives
100 g
White onion
1 piece
Bell pepper
1 piece
Tomatoes sauce
2 tbsp
Yellow cheese
250 g
or mozarella
Red dry wine
50 ml
Dried basil
0.5 tsp
add some pepper, curry, parsley, etc
1 tsp
to taste

Step by step


Grind the beef meat.


Cook the meat in a skillet with some vegetabel oil - stir regularly.


Add the red wine, and cook until all liquid evaporates and meat begins to brown.


Then add salt, some spices and dried herbs - I put pepper, curry, dried basil, parsley and paprika. Mix well and remove from the heat.


Prepare all topping ingredients for the pizza - slice the onion, red pepper and olives.


Use your fingers to spread the oil around the pan, and then spread out the dough, lifting it a bit towards the edges.


Brush the dough with tomatoes sauce and then sprinkle it with Za'tar.


Add grated cheese.


Then add the cooked meat.


Add sliced red pepper.


Finally, add sliced onion and olives.


Bake pizza into the oven - 180-200 C, until browned, but not to much. Let it cool 5 minutes in the pan.

Slice pizza and enjoy.

Bon Appetit!
