How to make a Turkish Style Lamb Pizza

This Turkish inspired pizza is made with spiced lamb mince and topped with Greek feta and fresh herbs.

Living in London has its perks when it comes to food choices. Turkish cuisine is super popular, especially as a great weekend takeaway.

This lamb pizza is similar to Turkish Pida or Lahmacun making it the perfect fake-away meal. The combination of spiced lamb, fresh herbs and Greek feta is so heavenly! and not to mention really quick and easy too.

Pick Your Own Meat.

This recipe uses lamb mince however you can make this with beef, chicken, turkey or whatever you like really. You can even make it vegan with minced mushroom or aubergine or even chickpeas or shredded jack fruit.

Choosing the Bread

Pizza dough is easy to come by nowadays but so is flat bread. I purchased 2 flat breads on sale at Tesco for £0.49p which inspired me to create this!

Understanding the need to be a little healthier, substitute the white flour for wholewheat or spelt flour, or use wholewheat wraps instead.

Other Toppings

I personally chose to top this with Feta crumbles, finely chopped mint and parsley then finished it off with a squeeze of lemon, however this can certainly be made into a classic style pizza with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.

Basically, use whatever makes the taste buds happy.
