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).
  • 05
  • 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.
