Ingredients

Bread

  • 500g bread flour
  • 5g dried yeast
  • 15ml olive oil
  • 300ml warm water
  • 10ml olive oil
  • Salt freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs, finely chopped

Lamb

  • 1kg lamb, diced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 10ml smoked Spanish paprika
  • 60ml olive

Salad

  • 200g rockets
  • 3 red pepper roasted, skinned and cut into strips
  • 15ml balsamic vinegar
  • 30ml olive oil
  • 100g pine nuts, roasted
  • 200g plain goat’s cheese log, crumbled

Method

1. Mix all of the bread ingredients to make a soft dough. Add more water, only if necessary and place on a floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic.

2. Place the dough in a bowl, cover and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in size. Remove prove and let it rise again. Make into 6 equally sized balls. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

3. Roll the balls out like a pizza and brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with fresh herbs and season to taste. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, rub the salt, pepper and paprika all over the lamb and leave to stand for about one hour.

5. Fry the lamb in the olive oil to your preference.

6. For the salad, wash and place the rocket in a large bowl with the peppers. Add the balsamic vinegar and olive oil and mix well. Add warm lamb and pine nut and toss to combine.

7. Place the salad evenly on the flatbread, add the goat’s cheese and serve.
