Add garlic, cumin and paprika and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add tomato paste, tomatoes and ¼ cup (60ml) water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Spoon mince mixture evenly over roasted vegetable rounds and sprinkle with feta. Bake for 5 minutes or until heated through.
  4. Meanwhile, combine yoghurt and preserved lemon in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle ‘pizzas’ with yoghurt mixture and top with coriander to serve.

Notes
