Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground round
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrot
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 4 (4-ounce) Italian pizza crusts (such as Boboli)
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) finely shredded provolone or part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. Cook beef, onion, and carrot in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well; return meat mixture to pan. Stir in barbecue sauce, sugar, salt, and pepper; reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Place pizza crusts on a baking sheet. Divide beef mixture evenly among crusts, and sprinkle with cheese. Bake pizzas at 450° for 12 minutes or until cheese melts. Sprinkle pizzas with cilantro. Cut each pizza into 4 wedges.
