Meanwhile, fry the mince until browned, then drain on a kitchen towel. Make the garlic butter by beating the butter with the garlic, sage, tomato purée and some black pepper.

  • STEP 3

Heat the oven to 240C/220C fan/gas 8. Divide the dough into four balls. Roll the balls on a floured surface into thin rounds, about 20cm wide. Lift onto floured baking trays, then spread with the garlic butter, leaving a 1cm border. Sprinkle with the mince, cheese, onion and chilli. Bake for 10-12 mins or until the dough is crisp. Scatter over the rocket, olives and lemon zest, and drizzle over some olive oil to serve.
