Sloppy Moroccan pizza

Sloppy Moroccan pizza

If the name of this pizza makes you laugh, we should totally be friends.

Please, if you're watching what you eat, stop reading now. If not, you have only yourself to blame.

This pizza is SO good. I cannot stress this enough. And it's pretty easy, so perfect for a Friday night gathering or movie night.


I once ate a sloppy joe pizza (clearly I am not watching what I eat), and obviously it was amazing. But I'm of the firm belief that there's nothing that can't be made better with some harissa paste - and that's where the Sloppy Moroccan came from!

Me and J usually make a pizza each, but it's so filling that there's always leftovers. FYI, this makes an awesome breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Sloppy Moroccan pizza

Recipe (makes 2 pizzas)
2 pizza bases. If you have a go-to dough recipe you love, by all means use that. I used ready-made bases from Sainsbury's.
1 onion, chopped
300g beef mince. If you want to take the Moroccan factor to the next level, you could use lamb.
100g tomato puree
1 generous teaspoon harissa paste
150g mozzarella, sliced
20g cheddar, finely grated
Bunch of fresh coriander, chopped

Preheat the oven to 180degrees (fan).

Saute the onion until soft then add the mince and stir until it's browned and cooked through.

Add the tomato puree and harissa, and stir to combine.

Half the mixture, then spread on each pizza base. It's quite a dense mixture, but it should spread well enough.

Lay the slices of mozzarella over the mince layer, and then top with the grated cheddar.

Cook in the oven for around 10 minutes, but keep an eye on it - everyone has their own idea of the perfectly done pizza!

When the pizzas are at your favourite level of crispy/gooey-ness, take them out and top them with lots of coriander. Slice and enjoy.
