Spicy Sloppy Joe Pizza
Enough Pizza Dough for 1 Large pizza, either homemade or purchased
1 tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil
1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon spicy mustard or Creole mustard
1 tablespoon Tabanero hot sauce
1 teaspoon Cajun or Creole seasoning, or a seasoned salt blend
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 large red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese, or a Cheddar and Monterey Jack Blend
In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef with onion and celery in the oil, breaking up the ground beef into small pieces. Cook, stirring, until beef is well browned and onions are lightly browned.
Stir in tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, mustard, Creole seasoning, chili powder, and pepper. Bring to a simmer and simmer for about 4 to 5 minutes.
Fit pizza dough into a 12 to 14-inch pizza pan. Spread ground beef mixture over the pizza evenly. Top with sliced onion and shredded cheeses. Bake at 400°. for 20 to 25 minutes, or until crust is browned and cheeses and topping are bubbly and melted. Enjoy!
