Spicy Lamb Pizza with Parsley–Red Onion Salad
This Spicy Lamb Pizza with Parsley–Red Onion Salad is like a take on the Turkish recipe Lahmacun. Lahmacun is a round, thin piece of dough that is typically topped with minced lamb, herbs and vegetables, including onions, tomatoes, and parsley.
I use prepared pizza dough for this recipe when I make this, which makes it much easier than starting from scratch with dough. Simply prepare the lamb topping. Roll out one half of the pizza dough first and top with the lamb topping. Bake in the oven and repeat with the second piece of pizza dough. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle an onion, lemon, and herb garnish over the top. Enjoy!
