Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 4
  • ½ small onion, chopped
  • 4 teaspoons dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound lamb
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 balls of pizza dough
  1. In a large bowl, combine the onion, parsley, cumin, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Add the lamb and the olive oil and mix together until the herbs are fully incorporated into the lamb. Allow the lamb to marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
  2. While the lamb is marinating, preheat the oven to 500 F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  3. Roll the both balls of pizza dough on the baking sheet. Make sure there is some space between each of the pizzas. Do not roll out the dough so that it is too thin. It should be large enough to hold 2 of the lamb burger patties.
  4. Cook the pizzas for 8 minutes, or until they are golden. Set aside. Cut the pizzas in half. Cut each pizza half so that there is an opening in the middle. Be careful not to tear the sides.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line another baking sheet with foil.
  6. Shape the lamb mixture into four patties and place on the baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the lamb is cooked to desired doneness.
  7. Place the lamb patties in the pizza halves and serve immediately.
