Spicy Lamb Pizza with Parsley–Red Onion Salad

Share

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!

To make the Spicy Lamb Pizza with Parsley–Red Onion Salad, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Spicy Lamb Pizza with Parsley–Red Onion Salad

1

Preheat baking sheet

5

Place a baking sheet on a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 500 °F.

2

Prepare topping

3

Combine 2 finely grated garlic cloves, ¼ cup of tomato paste, ¾ teaspoon of ground cinnamon, ¾ teaspoon of ground cumin, ¾ teaspoon of smoked paprika, and ¾ teaspoon of salt in a large bowl. Mix in 12 ounces of ground lamb.

3

Stretch dough

5

Take 1 piece of the dough. Keep the other piece of dough covered while you work. Stretch the dough gently into a 10 x 8-inch oval shape and transfer to a lightly floured parchment-lined baking sheet.

4

Add toppings

15

Scatter half of the lamb mixture over the dough and brush the edges with 1 tablespoon of oil. Slide the dough onto the preheated baking sheet and bake for 6–8 minutes until the crust is golden brown. Remove the pizza from the oven and place on a wire rack.

Repeat the process with the remaining piece of dough and lamb topping and 1 tablespoon of oil.

When both pizzas are cooked, drizzle with oil.

Toss ½ a small red onion, 1 cup of parsley leaves, and 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice in a bowl. Season with salt and sprinkle the garnish over the pizzas. Add crushed red pepper flakes if using.
