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.

How to Make Lamb&Goat Cheese Pizza, Sundried Tomatoes&Mint

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.
