A different take on fresh home cooked pizza.

Savory Braised Beef Brisket with Zesty GremolataIngredients:
  • 1 onion – thinly sliced
  • olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • ½ lb. hamburger
  • 2-3 garlic cloves minced, divided
  • ½ cup red pepper - roasted, cleaned and thinly sliced
  • Flour or corn meal
  • 1 ½ cups smoked mozzarella - shredded
  • 1 pizza dough - homemade or any store bought crust - rolled to 12-14 inches
  • 1-2 cups fresh arugula - garnish after cooking

Heat grill on high heat or oven to 450 degrees with pizza stone inside.

Cook onion in 1-2 T of olive oil over medium low heat for 20 minutes or until caramelized, add salt and pepper. Add fresh thyme at end.
Cook hamburger in 1 T olive oil over medium heat for 3 minutes then add 1 crushed garlic clove, salt and pepper, continue cooking until browned. Drain and set aside in bowl.
Char pepper over open flame and put in plastic bag for 5 minutes to loosen skin, then peel and cut.
Add flour or corn meal to your pan or pizza peal to ensure your crust doesn’t stick. Brush 1 T of olive oil over crust, add 1 crushed garlic clove. Now add shredded cheese evenly, hamburger, onions and peppers. Bake on pizza stone until cheese is melted and sides are crispy brown 4-8 minutes.
Serve pizza with fresh arugula and a drizzle of olive oil.
