Hoisin Lamb and Pak Choy Pizza

Full of flavour.

I really enjoy trying new toppings on pizzas – this version uses some Asian inspiration  to create totally different flavours.

Hoisin sauce is one of my favourites because it is both sweet and savoury. It is an excellent alternative to traditional tomato sauce, and compliments the lamb mince well. Baby pak choy and spring onions add freshness and texture.

If you can’t get lamb mince (ground) then beef or turkey would work equally as well. I cheated and used a store-bought pizza base this time, but feel free to make your own.

Ingredients – serves 2:

  • 1 store-bought or home-made ‘thin & crispy’ pizza base
  • 2 tbsp Hoisin sauce
  • 1 baby pak choy, finely chopped
  • 2 spring (green/salad) onions, finely chopped
  • 200g/7 oz lamb mince
  • 2 small handfuls grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1 long red chilli, finely diced

Method:

  • Heat your oven to 200C/180C fan forced/390F.
  • Place your pizza base on a baking tray and spread the Hoisin sauce over the top.
  • Scatter the chopped pak choy stalks over the pizza – reserve the chopped leaves until later.
  • Sprinkle the spring onions and then small pieces of lamb mince over the pizza.
  • Scatter on the grated mozzarella.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the crust is crispy and just turning golden.
  • Top the pizza with the chopped pak choy leaves and the diced red chilli, then return to the oven for a few minutes until the pak choy is wilted.
  • Serve and enjoy!
