  1. : Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. In a large saute pan, preheat oil and pan over medium flame. Add onions and peppers and sweet for about five minutes to soften. Add ground meat and more oil if necessary to prevent sticking. As meat browns, break up with a wooden spoon to combine with veg and brown evenly. Once meat is mostly broken up and still browning, add cumin, coriander, oregano and a healthy dash of salt and pepper. Continue to saute for 1 to 2 minutes to bring out the aromas in the seasoning. Add tomato paste and a splash of water if the mixture is very dry. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes to finish cooking. Meanwhile you should have prepped the toppings. To assemble the pizzas, start by even sprinkling each with a tablespoon of parmesan, this will help the toppings to stick in the oven. Evenly divide meat mixture amongst the four pies. Top with feta, chopped tomato and olives. Place in the oven for about 10 minutes until cheese has slightly melted and the bread has gotten sufficiently brown and crisp. To serve, drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkling of some hand torn fresh basil.
