'pudding' is the definition.
(tapioca pudding is a kind of pudding)

'ten involved in strike about' is the wordplay.
'ten' becomes 'IO' (IO resembles t0).
'involved' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'in strike' becomes 'tap' (tap can mean to strike or hit. I am not sure about the 'in' bit.).
'about' becomes 'ca' (abbreviation for 'circa').
'io' put within 'tapca' is 'TAPIOCA'.
