  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1small onion , chopped
  • 350g minced lamb
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 50g walnut pieces, chopped
  • large handful mint leaves, roughly chopped
  • 145g sachet pizza base mix
  • 2 tomatoes , sliced


  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Heat the oil in a large pan then fry the onion, mince and cinnamon over a high heat for 5 mins until the mince is browned. Take off the heat, season, then stir in the walnuts and mint.

  • STEP 2

    Prepare the pizza mix according to pack instructions, but ignore the rising stage. Divide into 4 and pat into small circles on a baking sheet. Spoon the mince mixture over one half of each circle, place 2 tomato slices on top, then fold the dough over. Press the edges to seal, slash the top 3 times then bake for 10-15 mins, until the dough is golden and cooked through. Serve with tzatziki and a green salad.


Once you have shaped the pies, freeze a couple for a standby supper. Simply defrost them in the fridge overnight and bake as above.
