Open-faced ground meat pie with sweet cherry tomatoes


For the dough

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl, mixing from the center outward, until you create an elastic dough. You can also do this in a mixer using the hook attachment and beating on medium speed, until the dough comes together and starts to pull back from the sides of the bowl.
  • When ready, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate to chill for 30 minutes.

For the ground meat

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Sauté the ground meat in a pan over medium to high heat. When it has browned nicely, add the finely chopped onion and sauté it also.
  • Add the wine and the bouillon cube.
  • Lower heat to medium and add the finely chopped thyme.
  • Let all of the liquid reduce and remove from heat.
  • Set aside to cool and then add 2 tablespoons sweet cherry tomatoes with ginger and cardamom. Stir to combine.
  • Lightly dust a working surface with flour.
  • Roll out dough over flour to a 20 cm disc.
  • Add the ground meat mixture in the center and spread over dough, leaving a 10 cm border unfilled.
  • Cut the mozzarella into slices and spread over meat filling.
  • Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the cheese melts and turns golden.
  • When ready, remove from oven and set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Cut into pieces and serve.
