Beef, Mushroom and Pepper Tart/Pizza

Who says you can’ t have both? Tart or pizza? Combine the two and it is, no matter how you word it……fabulous and super tasty.

Busy schedule during the week or just a TGIF day, this one’s the real lifesaver.


  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 8 oz. fresh, sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 green pepper, cut into strips and then cut into small pieces
  • 3 shallots, sliced
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1 package of puff pastry, thawed
  • 3-4 oz. Manchego cheese
  • fresh oregano or basil

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. In a skillet, cook the beef and shallots until starting to turn brown and add the mushrooms and green pepper. Stirring occasionally, add the salt and pepper and drain off the excess fat.

Grease a large baking sheet or line with parchment paper. Unroll the puff pastry and roll it out to about 15 x 12 inches. Top the dough with all the filling, keeping it about an inch off the sides.

Placethe pastry edges up over the mixture, folding as necessary. Do not cover completely, hence the tart feel.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the cheese over the top and drop some fresh oregano or basil on top. Slice, plate and enjoy.

If staying in, pour a glass of wine for the over 19’s and soda or chocolate milk for the younger set. Mini party in no time.
