Lamb Pizza with Peppers and Arugula

Serving Size: Serves 4 to 6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes


1 package pre-made whole grain pizza dough (about 500g)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 kg ground or sliced lamb
1 medium shallot, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cups sliced  peppers
3/4 cups goat cheese crumbles
2 cups arugula


Heat oven to 230 degrees. Brush rimmed baking sheet with 1 teaspoon olive oil; using your hands, spread dough over entire length of baking sheet, pushing dough to edge (or roll out on floured surface and transfer to pan). Bake pizza dough for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add lamb, shallot, garlic, tomato paste, oregano, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, cook until lamb is completely browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Brush par-baked crust with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Evenly distribute cooked lamb and peppers, top with crumbled goat cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes, until cheese looks slightly melted and edges of crust are golden brown. Toss arugula with remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil, set aside. Remove from oven and top with dressed arugula.
