simple sloppy joe pizzas

This is just another incredible meal in under 30 minutes, that you just cannot pass up.  Don’t skip the Worcestershire sauce – it gives it that sloppy joe feeling.  LOVE this beautiful mess.  Perfect for those lazy friday nights or any night. I could eat this right now if I had one in front of me.  You can slice them up and serve them as appetizers at your next get-together.  Your guests will be very happy.




  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 (15 oz.) can fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 tbs tomato paste
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbs coconut sugar
  • 1 tbs chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 small flatbreads (I used Tandoori Naan)
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese


In a deep large skillet, heat the oil.  Cook the onion until translucent on medium high – for 2 minutes.  Add the turkey and using a wooden spoon, break up the meat until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Add the tomatoes, paste, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin and salt to the skillet.  Bring to a boil and lower heat to a simmer.  Taste the sauce to adjust any seasonings, if needed.  Cook for 10-15 minutes.

Place flatbreads on baking sheet.  Add plenty of sauce to each flatbread and top with cheese.  Place in oven on bottom tray for 5-10 minutes or until cheese has fully melted.  Serves best warm.

Yields 4 servings.

Special Notes:

  1. To make this vegetarian, try with beans instead of meat… just cook the sauce and add a can of pinto beans.
  2. These would also be great for a get-together… just slice them into strips and serve.
  3. You can also use the sloppy joe mixture to top quinoa or rice.
