For some crazy reason, people never get tired of pizza. We put everything on pizza these days, if it’s something edible I bet you anything there’s a pizza out there with that as one of it’s toppings and I bet it tastes good!
If you are looking for a delicious new pizza creation, that elevates your pizza from the same old toppings that you get every Friday night, then you should try lamb. Lamb adds new flavours to your palette. You’ll want to give it a shot as a solid option for a pizza topping because it is a great addition to it.

Sometimes it is hard to know what pairs well with certain types of meat, like for example lamb. Some great toppings to add to this type of lamb on your pizza are parsley, olives, capers, red onion, and fresh spinach or arugula. These ingredients complete the pizza with different levels of spice, flavour, and texture. Feel free to also add whatever else you would desire as toppings as well.
COOKING TIP: Make sure to grill the pizza, for roughly eight to ten minutes, to create a smoky flavour, and char the crust to make it nice and crisp with every bite.
Lamb tastes best with homemade pizza crust, and makes the experience all the more fun and worth it once you have a taste.
