Ingredients

You get big flavour on these individual pizzas with just a few ingredients. The creamy beef mixture with the crunch of the naan bread is a great contrast!

  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil (or any type on hand)
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) frozen peas
  • 1 portion Big Batch Calcium Boosted Beef
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 5 naan breads
  • 3/4 cup (175mL) crumbled feta cheese
 

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC).

In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add peas and cook, stirring for 3 minutes or until starting to thaw. Add the Big Batch Calcium Boosted Beef mixture and the cumin, cooking for about 5 minutes or until beef and vegetables are heated through. Remove from heat and stir in mozzarella.

Arrange naan breads onto two large baking sheets in a single layer. Spread each naan evenly with beef mixture and sprinkle with feta cheese.

Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, switching pans halfway through until naan is lightly golden and crisp around the edges.

Bone is a living tissue, that is constantly renewing and repairing itself from everyday wear and tear.  However, like many nutrients, calcium is absorbed less effectively as we age.  Try out our calcium calculator to see if you are getting enough in your daily diet.
