Grilled Pizza with Spiced Lamb, Feta & Arugula


4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/2 pound ground lamb
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh oregano
4 cups arugula
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Kosher or sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Pizza Dough (see recipe below)
1 cup crumbled feta cheese


In a medium-size saucepan over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and cook lamb, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon. With a slotted spoon, remove lamb to a plate to cool. Wipe the pan clean.

Over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil to pan and cook onion and garlic gently until softened and translucent. Add cumin and oregano and stir well. Cook just 1 minute to release fragrance. Remove from heat and let cool. Add lamb and mix well.

In a medium-size bowl, combine arugula, remaining olive oil, and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Heat your grill to medium-high, and oil the grates lightly. Roll dough out as thinly as possible. Place dough on grates and cook about 1 minute, or until very lightly browned. Turn dough over and quickly sprinkle with lamb mixture and feta. Cover the grill with the lid. Let cook about 2 minutes and check; edges should be browned. Spoon arugula mixture over the top.
