  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper
  • 5-10ml/1-2tsp garlic salt or granules (available at most supermarkets)
  • 30ml/2tbsp freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 15-30ml/1-2tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Cooking Method

In a large bowl mix together the mince, seasoning, herbs and Worcestershire sauce. Shape into 16 small meatballs, roughly the size of a walnut.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan and dry fry the meatballs for 3-4 minutes on both sides until brown. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon

Preheat the oven to Gas mark 6, 200°C/400°F.

Place the naan breads on a baking sheet and spread each one with 15ml/1tbsp tomato purée. Top with the roasted peppers, meatballs and cheese. Drizzle over the olive oil.

Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until the base is crispy and the cheese has melted.

Garnish with the basil leaves and serve immediately with a crisp salad.
