Spicy Lamb Pitta Pizzas

These Spicy Lamb Pitta Pizzas are great as a meal for 2, or a starter for 4.

Like the Turkish Lamb Flatbread Sandwiches, you can use finely chopped leftover roast lamb rather than lamb mince if you prefer; and mozzarella can be substituted to make this the perfect ‘what do I have in the fridge’ meal.



Serves: 2-4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground paprika
  • 450g minced lamb
  • 4 large pitta breads
  • 4 tbsp tomato purée
  • 100g Mozzarella, grated
  • Handful of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
To serve:
  • Salad

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C/200˚C fan/gas mark 7.
2. Heat one teaspoon of oil in a large pan over a medium-low heat and cook the onion, stirring, for three minutes. Add the cumin and paprika and cook for one minute.
3. Add the lamb and cook, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon, for 5-6 minutes or until browned throughout.
4. Place the pitta breads on two baking trays. Spread them with tomato purée and sprinkle with Mozzarella. Spoon over the spiced lamb mixture and bake the pittas for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
5. In a bowl, combine the remaining teaspoon of olive oil with the parsley, tomatoes, lemon juice and zest.
6. Place the pitta pizzas on serving plates. Top with the parsley mixture and serve with a crisp salad.
