Ingredients

  • 375g/12oz lean lamb stir fry strips or boneless lamb leg steaks, cut into thin strips
  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper
  • 5ml/1tsp dried oregano or basil
  • 15ml/1tbsp freshly chopped mint
  • 20ml/4tsp rapeseed or olive oil
  • 60ml/4tbsp prepared onion relish
  • 100g/4oz cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 1 x 125g pack mini mozzarella cheese balls, drained and roughly torn
  • 25g/1oz fresh rocket or baby spinach leaves, rinsed
  • For the Pizza Base:

  • 1 x 500g pack white bread mix

Method

To make the pizza bases. Make up the bread dough according to the packet instructions.  Mix to form a firm dough and turn out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.

Preheat the oven to Gas mark 7, 220°C, 425°F.

Roll out into 2 large thin rounds (25cm/10inches in diameter).  Carefully transfer to 2 large, lightly floured baking sheets. Drizzle with half the oil and bake for 10 minutes.

Put the lamb in a large, plastic food bag, season, add the herbs, seal and shake well.

Heat a large non-stick pan with the remaining oil and stir fry the lamb for 4-5 minutes until brown, tossing occasionally.

Remove the pizza bases from the oven and spread each base with 30ml/2tbsp of the onion relish.  Scatter over the tomatoes, lamb strips and torn pieces of mozzarella.  Return the pizzas to the oven and cook for a further 6-8 minutes.

Garnish the pizzas with fresh rocket or spinach leaves.  Cut into portions and serve with a crisp salad.

Tips:

If preferred replace the mozzarella with Feta cheese.
