Beef + Lamb New Zealand

This lamb pizza is easy to make and easier to eat - a great alternative to takeaways! Perfect for a dinner or lunch for two, or when entertaining - quantities could easily be increased to feed more people. Rump is perfect cut of meat for this recipe – it doesn’t have too much fat on it so it’s easy to eat. Cooking the lamb medium or medium rare will ensure they're still nice and juicy in the middle.

Method

To Make Pizza

1

Preheat the oven to 230°C.

2

Place a tray or pizza stone into the oven to preheat. You need a cooking surface that heats up and stays hot. A pizza stone, oven rack lined with quarry tiles or even a simple overturned sheet pan will work, so long as you give it ample time to preheat. If you have a wood-burning pizza oven, start the fire 45 minutes to an hour before you begin baking.

3

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan.

4

Season the lamb steak with salt and pepper and fry for 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked to your liking.
