Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 240C and place 2 baking trays in the oven to heat. Mix flour, olive oil, 1 tsp sea salt and 200ml water in a bowl to a rough dough, then knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth (1-2 minutes). Set aside.

  • Combine lamb, lemon rind and juice, spices, mint and remaining garlic in a bowl, season to taste and mix well.

  • Halve dough and roll out each piece on a lightly floured piece of baking paper to 3mm thick and spread each with capsicum mixture, leaving a 1cm border. Scatter lamb mixture over, then drizzle with extra oil and use the baking paper to transfer to oven trays. Bake, swapping trays partway through cooking, until crisp and browned on the edges (15-20 minutes).

  • Meanwhile, for salad, combine onion and lemon juice in a bowl and stand to soften slightly, then add remaining ingredients and toss to combine. Scatter onto pizza and serve with lemon wedges.

Note Roasted capsicum is available from delicatessens or in jars from supermarkets.
