Beef Mushroom Pizza

Starting this week's marathon with one of my favorite themes - Pizzas. This italian delicacy has entered almost all Indian households and I guess most of the moms these days try to make it at home.

So today I have given a kerala touch to the pizza - meaning I have added beef as one of the toppings. I should say Kerala and beef are kind of made for each other. I also added other vegetables like mushrooms, bell pepper, onions, tomatoes etc. You can add any other meat substitue like paneer or soya for the vegetarian version.

I normally stock cooked beef at home. So I was ready with all the toppings in a jiffy. And whenever  I make pizza base I normally make 3-4 and store it. I bake the pizza base so that its just cooked at 180 degree centigrade for about 5-7 minutes. After cooling I pack the pizza base individually into zip lock covers and refrigerate them. I try to use these within 15 days. I have shared the recipe for making a pizza base here.


1 green pepper, cut into thin bite-size strips
1 small red onion, sliced and separated into rings
2-3 small mushrooms, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 prepared pizza crust
2 tbsp tender cooked beef, cut into thin bite-size strips.
1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated
1 teaspoon italian seasoning


  • Place olive oil in a large nonstick skillet and heat.
  • Add the green pepper, mushrooms and onion and saute until tender, about 8 minutes. Set aside.
  • Place pizza crust on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Top with the cooked beef, onion, mushroom and green pepper mixture, and cherry tomatoes.
  • Sprinkle with Swiss cheese, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning.
  • Bake in a 180 C in the oven for about 8-10 minutes or until cheese melts and pizza is heated through.
