Middle Eastern Spicy Lamb Pizza October 24, 2012

I tried this today for dinner. Yummy, I love it. It has two of some of my favourite things, bread and lamb. This one is from the Weight Watchers magazine.

I will have to admit I left the pizzas in the oven a bit too long, you kind of need to keep an eye on them. I think next time, rather than make a pizza out of them, I’ll just heat the Lebanese bread and make a wrap or kebab instead.

I served this with a mint yoghurt (natural yoghurt, chopped mint, squeeze of lemon, salt and pepper)
