Sloppy Joe pizza

This all-American classic will be a hit with the whole family. After all, who can deny the enticing lure of Sloppy Joes?

Makes: Two pizzas


1 onion

1 tsp dried thyme

1 tin of tomatoes

1tbsp olive oil

Salt and pepper

200grs grated cheese

Block of pizza cheese

250g natural yogurt

250g self raising flour

1tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt


  • Preheat the oven to 250c or as high as it will go. Put your pizza trays into the oven to preheat.

  • Grate your onion into a pan set over a low heat with a splash of olive oil. Add the thyme and cook gently.

  • Season and add the tinned tomatoes, adding the water used to clean out the tin and cook for a further 5 minutes. Set aside once cooked.

  • Add the bolognese sauce to a saucepan to reheat gently. Set aside once hot.

  • Combine ingredients for the pizza dough in a bowl and bring together to form a ball. 

  • Knead a little on a floured surface until the surface of the dough is smooth.

  • Divide into 3 balls, pat down and roll out 2 of them to form teardrop shapes. Put the bases onto the hot trays and into the oven for 1-2 minutes to partially cook.

  • While they cook, roll the third ball out into a long rectangle. Cut the pizza cheese into batons and lay on top. Fold the dough over the top of the cheese and seal. Sprinkle with a little flour.

  • Remove the pizza bases from the oven, flip and top with the tomato sauce. Spoon a good amount of the mince on the pizza base and sprinkle with cheese.

  • Put the pizzas and the stuffed crust in the oven at 250c for 6-7 mins.
