  • half a 500g pack bread mix - or make your own (see below)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 250g lean minced lamb
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tbsp natural yogurt
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
  • handful mint, chopped (or use a sprinkling of dried)
  • 250g strong white flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp easy blend yeast from a 7g sachet
  • 150ml warm water


  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Make the bread mix following pack instructions, then divide into two and roll out into large ovals. Transfer to a large, floured baking sheet.

  2. In a bowl, combine the onion, lamb, garlic, spices and yogurt, and season. Crumble over the dough almost to the edges, then scatter over the pine nuts. Bake for 15-18 mins until the bread is golden and crisp and the meat is browned. Sprinkle over the mint, then serve with a green leaf and tomato salad.

  3. FOR THE DOUGH: Mix together the flour, salt, sugar and yeast. Add the water and mix to a soft dough. Knead for 2 mins on a lightly floured surface, then roll out. Add the topping as above. Leave in a warm place to rise for 15 mins before serving.
