Turkish Pizza With Spicy Lamb Topping



1 recipe pizza dough (may be bought frozen at supermarket, fresh from a pizza store or made by you at home from your favorite recipe). Roll out dough and fit into a round pan for baking pizza.


1 c. ground lamb
3/4 c. finely chopped onions
1 c. finely chopped peeled tomatoes
3/4 c. finely chopped combination of semi-hot chiles and peppers (poblanos, Hungarian peppers, Anaheim chilies)
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 c. chopped mint leaves
1/2 c. chopped flat-leaf parsley

Saute onions in several tablespoons of olive oil for a few minutes, just until soft. Remove. Saute peppers for a few minutes. Remove. Saute lamb just until brown. Pour off any fat and discard.

Strew the browned lamb, the lightly sauteed onions and peppers, and the tomatoes evenly over the surface of the pizza dough. Then sprinkle the mint, parsley and red pepper over the top. Add salt to taste.

Bake in preheated 550 degree oven about 15 to 20 minutes or until dough is a nice golden brown and the topping is sizzling.
