Greek Style Lamb Pizza | Family-Friendly Dinner

Friday nights have never been more delicious with this Greek Style Lamb Pizza. Made with lamb mince, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, feta and pine nuts… you’ll be coming back for more!

In our house, we’re big fans of pizza. I actually love it double as much because Dave is our official pizza maker… which means I can just fluff around pretending to be busy. And as much as I hate to admit it, he’s a much better pizza maker than me. Usually we (and by we, I of course, mean Dave) make our all-time favourite Prosciutto, Bocconcini and Rocket Pizza (OMG it’s the BEST thing ever!), but sometimes we mix it up a bit.

Often we’ll make a Greek lamb pizza with leftover roast meat.. but this time we decided to change things around a bit and use lamb mince. This is a messy-awesome-totally-delicious-kinda-pizza. I had bits of mince falling everywhere, but dear oh dear, it was really, really good… so who on earth cares if it’s messy! Messy food is good food… just ask a bowl of nachos.

Greek Style Lamb Pizza

To make this lamb pizza you need to whip up a basic pizza dough. If you’ve got a Thermomix, it will save you a ton of time, but if not, don’t stress – your hands will work just as good. And Dave tells me that there’s nothing better than making your own pizza dough by hand. Seriously, that man should have been born in Italy.

Then it’s simply a matter of browning off some lamb mince with some yummy garlic and herbs and spreading over a bit of pizza sauce. Add a handful or two of baby spinach, the cooked lamb mince, a good sprinkle of crumbled feta and the halved cherry tomatoes, and then pop it into the oven. When there’s about 5 minutes cooking time remaining, toss over a handful of pine nuts.

Serve with a sauce made from greek yoghurt, lemon juice and garlic (it’s also very yummy is you add in a little chopped mint!).

 

This lamb pizza may just become a new Friday night favourite at our house.

The pizza sounds so tantalizing, Lucy! I totally agree with Dave about making your own pizza dough by hand.
