    Remove and crack crust. Garnish with reserved parsley leaves and serve.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Add three or four pieces of beef at a time to avoid overcrowding the pot and lowering the overall cooking temperature.
    2. Use any in-season root vegetables in this recipe.
    3. Pizza dough seals in the juices and flavor. A store bought dough will work well in this recipe.
