In a large frying pan, heat oil on medium. Cook onion 4-5 mins until softened. Increase heat to high. Add mince and brown, breaking up lumps, 6-8 mins.
Add tomato paste. Cook 1 min. Mix in tomatoes. Simmer 4-5 mins until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir pine nuts, mint, vinegar, honey, and spices through.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease and line 2 oven trays with baking paper. Place pizza bases on trays.
Spread beef mixture over bases. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 10-12 mins until bases are crisp and golden and cheese has melted. Serve topped with dollops of yogurt and scattered with extra mint leaves.
Tip: You can omit the pine nuts, if you like.
