Ingredients

  • 1 batch pizza dough (see step 1 in the recipe)
  • 250g lamb mince
  • 1 small onion, very finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • a good pinch of chilli flakes
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley
  • juice and zest of ½ lemon
  • 60g grated mozzarella
  • 100g feta, crumbled
  • 50g pine nuts
  • olive oil to drizzle, optional
For the speedy tomato pizza sauce
  • 75g tomato purée
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp mixed dried herbs of your choice
  • 1 tsp caster sugar

Step by step

  1. Make the pizza dough of your choice - choose from either our overnight pizza dough or our quick pizza dough. Preheat the oven to as hot as it will go, about 240°C, fan 220°C, gas 9, with 2 large, flat baking trays in the oven.
  2. Fry the lamb mince and onion together in a large nonstick frying pan (there’s no need to add oil) over a high heat, breaking the mince up. Fry for 5 minutes, stirring, until the mince starts to crisp. Add the spices and cook for 30 seconds. Remove from the heat; stir in most of the parsley, the lemon juice and season. Tip onto a plate to cool.
  3. For the speedy tomato sauce, simply mix everything together in a bowl with some seasoning, plus 2 tablespoons of water.
  4. Roll and shape the pizza dough into 2 large pizza bases, about 30cm each in diameter, on a large square of baking paper; spread each one thinly with half the sauce. Scatter on the spiced mince, mozzarella, feta and pine nuts. If using the quick pizza dough, leave to rise for 10-15 minutes before baking. Transfer the pizzas to the preheated baking trays and bake in the hot oven for 10-12 minutes.
  5. Scatter on the rest of the parsley and the lemon zest just before serving, and add a drizzle of oil.

I love Middle Eastern flavours, so for me, this is a perfect cross-cultural mash-up
