  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2tsp olive oil
  • 700g Butcher’s Selection Rolled Beef Brisket (approximate weight)
  • 200ml beef stock
  • 1 sachet Chosen by you Great To Bake Pizza Mix

Method
  • Mix the seasoning, garlic and oil into a paste. Unroll the brisket and rub with the mixture. Leave in the fridge for at least 2 hrs or overnight.

  • Preheat the oven to 150C/ 130C Fan/Gas 2. Put the beef in a roasting dish. Pour the stock around the base – take care not to wash off the rub.

  • Cover with foil and roast for 2 hrs, then turn over. Cook for 2 hrs more, or until you can shred the meat with a fork.

  • Make a pizza base according to the pack instructions, and roll out into an oblong. Put on a greased baking tray. Cover with oiled clingfilm and leave to rise for 10 mins. Remove the film and reflatten the dough.

  • Preheat the oven to 220C /200C Fan/Gas 7. Top the pizza base with the topper, onion, peppers, sweetcorn, cheese and half the shredded brisket (freeze the rest to use another time).

  • Bake for 15-20 mins. Serve sprinkled with spring onions.
