When Devorah Kahan was a young child she followed her mother around in the kitchen always interested in what was going on. These formative years ignited her passion of cooking as well as food photography. After high school Devorah elected to go to culinary school at the Center for Kosher Culinary Arts and hone her skills. Rachel Moskowitz has been cooking since she was high enough to reach the kitchen counter. She started developing recipes in her family kitchen when she was a teenager and her passion has only grown since then
½ lb. ground beef
2 tablespoons oil
1 small green pepper, sliced
1 small red pepper, sliced
1 small onion, sliced
4-5 white mushrooms, sliced
2 teaspoons salt, divided
8 oz. marinara sauce
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
2-3 sheets matzah
1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with foil.
2. Place oil in a frying pan and heat over a high flame. Add vegetables and sauté for 4-5 minutes, until they are tender but still have a bite to them. Remove from fire and add 1 teaspoon salt; transfer to a plate and set aside.
3. In the same pan, brown ground beef over high heat until it’s cooked through and no longer pink.
4. Turn off flame. Add marinara sauce to meat and add remaining 1 teaspoon salt and spices.
5. Place matzah on baking sheet and spread a thin layer of meat over it. Top with sautéed veggies. Bake for 15 minutes.
If you are making this meal for a crowd, you can sauté the vegetables and cook the meat the night before. This ensures minimal prep time the next day, as all you have to do is assemble the pizzas and bake. Also, you can use leftover Bolognese sauce for the meat if you have it on hand.
