  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.

Absolutely delicious. Served 4 people exactly and went brilliantly with a little Greek salad.

What does this mean, leave to rise before cooking?! Novice alert . . Leave in a warm place to rise for 15 mins before serving.

Got rid of some of the fat by cooking the mince separately. Great but would recommend using more meat, as not quite enough for 4 people.

Quite nice for a mid week meal - pretty easy (even when making your own bread dough) and the lamb was very tasty. It was a little greasy however, but then it wasn't lean mince I used and I did expect it to be a bit oily! Served it with turkish aubergine and garlice yogurt to add in some veg.

Easy to make although I found it bit bland , I would probably add chilli next time to spice it up a little. On the plus side it made enough for about 8 :)

This was very nice. If you made it and either your bread was tough, your meat was bland, or the whole thing was greasy, it's probably because you did it wrong, not a problem with the recipe. Either you didn't knead/prove the dough properly, you didn't season the meat mixture well enough, or you failed to notice that the recipe stipulates using lean mince.

Not blown away by this, despite adding extra garlic as recommended, also found it a bit greasy, definitely be better with lean lamb mince.

Not the greatest - I found the meat quite bland and like another reviewer used home made dough and it didn't rise and was a bit tough. The kids turned their noses up too - although that's nothing unusual.

You can also add some spices to the dough mix - I added some paprika and turmeric to give it a warm yellow colour, and also some cumin seeds because I love the flavour of cumin with lamb.
