This pizza recipe uses the Outback ceramic pizza stone to make light, fluffy pizza with a crisp base! The dough is very simple and can be made the night before, meaning it’s easy to put your pizzas together the next day. This topping is based very loosely on lahmacun, a type of Turkish flatbread topped sparsely with a mixture of spiced minced lamb and tomato. This pizza is finished with a zippy green sauce made with fragrant herbs.
Combine the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a bowl. Add the water and mix to a dough. Tip onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly – just until smooth.
Set the dough aside in a lightly oiled bowl, cover and allow to rest at room temperature overnight.
The next day, make your tomato sauce. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a saucepan and gently cook the garlic for a minute or two, stirring. Add the tomatoes, sugar, scotch bonnet chilli and some salt and pepper and allow to cook on low heat with the lid on for around 20 minutes. This can also be made the day before.
Prepare the green sauce by finely chopping the herbs and combining them with the 4 tablespoons of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
Prepare the topping by heating a splash of oil in a frying pan and gently cooking the onion until soft not coloured – around 5 minutes.
Add the spices and cook for one minute, stirring, taking care not to burn them. Add the lamb mince and cook until well browned, 10-15 minutes. Season with salt then set aside.
When you’re ready to cook, place the ceramic pizza stone onto the Jupiter Outback BBQ and turn all the gas burners on to high heat. Close the lid and wait until the BBQ is very hot.
Sprinkle a pizza paddle or the back of a baking tray with the polenta. Divide the dough into two pieces and place one piece on the paddle or baking tray. Use your hands to gently stretch it into a 20cm circle, leaving a little bump for a crust at the edges. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfectly round!
Have all your toppings ready next to the barbecue before transferring the pizza dough. When you’re ready, carefully move the dough onto the stone. This is best done fairly quickly! Top with your tomato sauce, mozzarella and lamb.
Close the lid and cook until the pizza is lovely and golden on the bottom, and beginning to brown on top. Repeat for the other pizzas. Top each with green sauce to serve.
