Roast Lamb Turkish Pizzas

Inspired by a popular Turkish flatbread pizza, this dish cleverly uses leftover roast lamb instead of the traditional topping of ground lamb. The savoury garlic sauce adds creaminess in place of cheese; double the recipe and use the extra as a salad dressing, if you like.

Ingredients

Creamy Garlic Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup plain Balkan-style yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 small garlic finely grated or pressed
  • pinch each salt and pepper
Pizza:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • half sweet red pepper finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 plum tomatoes seeded and diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 650 g prepared pizza dough
  • 2 cups diced roast lamb
  • 1/3 cup torn fresh mint

Method

Creamy Garlic Sauce: In small bowl, whisk together yogurt, mayonnaise, oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Set aside. (Make- ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.)

Pizza: In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, red pepper and garlic, stirring often, until softened and onions are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper and 3 tbsp water; cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes are broken down and mixture is slightly thickened, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool.

Divide dough in half. On lightly floured work surface, gently press and pull each half into 18- x 6-inch (45 x 15 cm) oval. Transfer to greased large baking sheet. Spread tomato mixture over crusts; sprinkle with lamb.

Bake on bottom rack of 475°F (240°C) oven, rotating sheet halfway through, until dough is puffed and golden, 15 to 18 minutes. Drizzle with garlic sauce and sprinkle with mint.
