Crispy turkish lamb pizzas

1. In a small bowl, combine water, oil and sugar. Sprinkle yeast over.

2. Cover and set aside 5 minutes, until frothy.

3. Sift flour and salt together into a large bowl. Make a well in centre. Add yeast mixture and yoghurt, mixing to form a dough.

4. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Transfer to an oiled bowl. Cover and set aside, in a warm place 2 hours, or until doubled in size.

5. Meanwhile, to make topping, heat a char-grill pan on high. Cook chillies 4-5 minutes, turning on all sides until skin blisters and blackens. Transfer to a plastic bag 5 minutes to loosen skins.

6. Peel off skins and remove seeds, discarding both. Transfer chilli flesh to a food processor with all remaining ingredients. Pulse until finely chopped.

7. Preheat oven to 220°C. Punch dough down with first to release gas. Divide into four equal pieces. Working on a floured surface, roll each piece out to a thin, 16cm round. Transfer two bases to each of two floured oven trays.

8. Spread dough bases with a thin layer of lamb mixture. Season to taste. Bake 8-10 minutes, until topping is cooked and bases are crisp and golden.

9. Serve straight away topped with extra parsley and extra yoghurt.
