Lamb&Goat Cheese Pizza, Sundried Tomatoes&Mint

Sherry Blizzard

Millie and Rose Mary inspired me with her goat cheese operation. I had some ground lamb in the freezer and some mint on hand. I also had a pizza crust I needed to use.

I went with a completely Greek theme. Mint, lamb, goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts and rosemary.

Wow. This pizza is very unusual. Add on some Kalamata olives, peppers and ...more...oh my.

I hope you will give this a try.

Ingredients

1
prebaked pizza crust (better if you make your own)
2 Tbsp
olive oil (use a good brand)
2 Tbsp
rosemary sprigs, chopped
1/4 c
red onion, diced fine
1/2 lb
ground lamb, browned and drained of liquid
1/4 c
sun dried tomatoes (reconsitute in hot water) drained
1/2 c
goat cheese, plain and sliced
6 slice
red bell pepper
6 slice
green bell pepper
1/4 c
sliced kalamata olives
2 Tbsp
mint, chiffonade
scant
red chile flakes (to dust)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Lightly oil a pizza stone with olive oil and gently press on the dough. (Use Jamie Oliver's Pizza crust recipe if you can...if not, canned refrigerated crust will do). Bake in a 400 F oven for 8 minutes.
2
While the crust is pre-baking, chop and slice veggies and brown the lamb in a tablespoon of olive oil. When almost brown, drain in a colander to remove oil.
3
Remove the pre-baked crust from the oven, lightly brush with olive oil. Sprinkle on the Rosemary leaves, onion, and lamb.
4
Drain the rehydrated tomatoes, top with slices of red and green peppers. Top with pine nuts and olives.
5
Top all with goat cheese and slices of fresh mozzarella, mint and a sprinkle of red chile flakes.
6
Bake for 10-14 minutes more at 400 F. Remove from oven and allow to sit 5 minutes before cutting.
