Instructions
Procedure for pizza dough
  1. In a large mixing bowl combine yeast, sugar and 100ml warm water together, until well combined. Set aside for 10 minutes or until the mixture becomes frothy. Add the remaining water and oil to the mixture, followed by the flour and salt.
  2. Using your hands bring the mixture together to form a soft dough. Tip the dough onto a clean, lightly floured work surface and knead for 15 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic. Place in a large lightly oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and leave in a warm place, to double in size.
  3. Place the dough on a lightly floured work surface and knock down the dough, which pushes the air out of the dough. Divide the dough into 4 equal sized balls to make the pizzas.
Procedure for tomato salsa
  1. In a medium mixing bowl combine the tomatoes, onion, garlic and olive oil, stirring until well combined.
Procedure for marinated lamb
  1. In a medium non-metallic mixing bowl combine the lamb, garlic, olive oil, oregano, lemon juice stirring until well combined. Season well with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Cover with plastic wrap, place in the refrigerator and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour but preferably overnight for the best results.
Procedure for tzatziki
  1. Combine yoghurt, cucumber, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, dill and garlic together in a food processor. Process until well combined. Transfer to a serving dish, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving, allowing the flavours to develop.
Procedure for pizza
  1. Preheat oven to 240°C (220°C fan-forced) and grease a 30cm round pizza tray.
  2. For each pizza, roll out one of the dough balls to fit the prepared pizza tray.
  3. To assemble the pizza, evenly spread ½ cup (130g) of tomato salsa over the base. Sprinkle ¼ cup (50g) fetta over the salsa, followed by 100g marinated lamb strips. To finish, top with 1 cup (100g) mozzarella.
  4. Place pizza in preheated oven and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until lamb is cooked and base is golden and crispy. Remove pizza from oven and top with tzatziki and baby rocket leaves. Repeat process for remaining pizza’s.
