Serve at your next pizza night for something different—chunks of lamb mingle with creamy goat cheese and peppery arugula.
- 1 lb pre-made whole grain pizza dough, thawed
- 2 Tbs olive oil, divided
- 1 lb ground lamb
- 1 med shallot, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 Tbs tomato paste
- 1 Tbs dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/4 cup pepperoncini peppers, sliced
- 3/4 cup goat cheese, crumbled
- 2 cups arugula (about 2 ounces)
- Brush rimmed baking sheet with 1 teaspoon oil. Using your hands, spread dough over entire length of baking sheet, pushing dough to edge (or roll out on floured surface and transfer to pan). Bake for 5 minutes at 450ºF. Remove from oven; set aside.
- In a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Add lamb, shallot, garlic, tomato paste, oregano, salt, and pepper; cook until lamb is completely browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Brush partially baked crust with 1 teaspoon oil. Evenly distribute cooked lamb mixture and pepperoncini; top with crumbled goat cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes, until cheese looks slightly melted and edges of crust are golden brown.
- Toss arugula with remaining 1 teaspoon oil; set aside. Remove pizza from oven and top with dressed arugula.
