PULLED LAMB DADDY PIZZA

Turning your leftovers into an entire meal!

How many people does it serve?

This should be an easy question to answer, but in South Africa, it’s complicated, due to our colourful multi-cultural rainbow nation.

  1. In an Anglo Saxon household, each pizza/meal should feed between 4 to 6 guests.
  2. In a Mediterranean, Ethnic or African home it could feed as little as 1 to 3 people for a single meal as food needs to be experienced in large quantities.
  3. If you’re of Scandinavian extraction, each meal could last you a month!

Then we need to look at your emotional state, as that is a determining factor when dealing with quantities.

  1. Have you had a terrible day with your boss?
  2. Did you fight with your spouse?
  3. Are your kids driving you insane?
  4. Is your wi-fi slower than the Groot Trek?
  5. Is the lockdown getting to you?
  6. Did that hot guy from the gym eventually whatsapp you?
  7. How are you doing with those skinny jeans?
  8. Is your mother-in law doing what mother-in laws do?
  9. What season of Game of Thrones are you watching?

All these contributing factors could influence the amount you will choose to eat; Ranging from “just a slice/bite” to “call in the kitchen Calvary we’re going down babies”!

YOU WILL NEED

QUANTITIES OF INGREDIENTS

Ingredients

  • 1 x Happy Days Pizza Base
  • Provolone Cheese – 150gr grated or cut into round slices (or any other semi-hard cheese)
  • Leftover pulled lamb (whatever roast you have left)
  • ½ x red onion, cut into wedges
  • 5-6 cherry tomatoes
  • 5 -6 fresh mint leaves

For the Tzatziki

  • 1 x cucumber, grated
  • 3 x garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 x cup double thick yogurt
  • 1 tsp x dried mint
  • 1 x tsp. white vinegar
  • A drizzle of olive oil
  • ½ x tsp salt

METHOD

How to prepare your tzatziki

We’re going to make more than we need but the remainder can be placed in a container in your fridge  and snacked on as a healthy alternative dip with your carrot and celery sticks.

  1. Cut the cucumber in half and grate the cucumber into the bowl. Do not remove the skin.
  2. When done, bring another bowl, place your sieve on top of the bowl and empty the grated cucumber into the sieve to allow for all the liquid to drain into this second bowl. You’ll need to initially help it along by pressing down onto the grated cucumber to start releasing its liquid. You need to help squeeze out the juice so that your tzatziki doesn’t get all runny. Once you’ve squeezed, leave for 10 minutes to completely drain.
  3. When the 10 minutes are up, bring the double thick yoghurt in a bowl, about one cup and empty the drained cucumber into the yoghurt.
  4. To this you will now add your 3 garlic cloves, a drizzle of olive oil, the teaspoon of white vinegar, ½ teaspoon salt and 1 tsp dry mint – some prefer to use fresh dill instead of mint. Use whichever you prefer. And mix, mix, mix until everything is coated in yoghurt and when done, cover in cling wrap and place in the fridge to chill.
  5. Now, bring out the leftover lamb. Pull all the good pieces and remove all the fatty bits and using a fork gently pull the leftover lamb into thin strips.
  6. Bring out your frozen pizza base and top with the Provolone cheese.
  7. Now add the pulled lamb strips directly onto the cheese. You want the lamb to melt into the cheese when baked in the oven.
  8. Onto the lamb add your ½ a red onion which you’ve cut into wedges.
  9. And that’s it. Your Pizza is ready for the oven. In the oven it goes for 10 to 12 minutes. Pre-heated to 200 deg.
  10. And 10 to 12 minutes later, remove the pizza from the oven, bring out your chilled tzatziki and place small dollops of that delicious dip over the deliciously baked lamb and provolone pizza and finish off with your fresh baby tomatoes which you’ve halved and a few mint leaves for that minty taste and you are now ready to climb into your meal.

We believe that this is what people mean when they use the phrase “ Make a meal of it”!
