I’m not quite sick of courgettes just yet, so I was looking forward to trying out this pizza boat recipe I found on Damn Delicious.
It called for turkey mince which I must admit I’ve never tried before. I’m not a lover of turkey meat preferring to have either duck or ham for the traditional Christmas dinner, but I’ve heard good things about mince so I thought I’d give it a go.
The recipe did say to use marinara sauce but never the one to follow something strictly I used tinned tomatoes and added the basil, oregano and seasoning when cooking the mince.
Pile on the mince mixture and then grate some cheese on top. Again, it says to use mozzarella which is obviously more pizza-like but I only had parmesan in my fridge so that shall do for me!
Now really the wedges take longer so should probably have put those in first but I stuck them both in at the same time and left them for 15 minutes. The courgettes seem to cook on the outside but probably would have been better if I’d roasted them before hand to soften them up and then put the topping on because I felt they were still a bit hard in the middle.
Also I’m not sure if I’m sold on the turkey mince, with normal beef mince the tomato always seems to complement the meet but this didn’t seem to mix well in my opinion. And cheese always makes everything better but this time I wasn’t entirely convinced!
If anyone else tries out this recipe let me know how you find it, I think I’d probably like to try it with beef next time!
