Spicy Lamb Flat Bread Pizza

Homemade pizzas are always a hit at our place especially when we make one that we haven't had before it's always a treat.

When I read this recipe on I knew we would all enjoy the taste and the fact that once again this was another easy recipe was a bonus.

I was a little concerned that this pizza didn't actually have cheese but to be perfectly honest it was not missed at all.

Spicy Lamb Flat Bread Pizza
(recipe adapted from Good Taste Magazine - July 2009)

Serves: 4
Points per serve: 5

cooking spray
1 red onion, halved, thinly sliced
1 red capsicum, halved, deseeded, thinly sliced
300g lean lamb mince
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground paprika
1 tsp ground coriander
2 tbs currants
2 tbs chopped fresh continental parsley
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 pieces wholemeal Lebanese bread
130g (1/2 cup) low-fat natural yoghurt
addtional parsely to garnish

Preheat oven to 220°C.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. Add the onion and capsicum. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes or until soft. Increase heat to high and add the mince. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps, for 4-5 minutes or until the mince changes colour. Add the cumin, paprika and coriander. Cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes or until aromatic. Remove from heat. Stir in the currants and parsley.

Coat 2 pizza trays with cooking spray and place a lebanese bread on each one. Spread each lebanese bread with tomato paste and divide mince mixture between both breads.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until bases are crisp.

Cut each pizza into quarters. Serve with the yoghurt and additional parsley if desired.

This pizza looks delicious. I normally like cheese on my pizzas too, but your right, it definitely doesn't need it.
