Libanese pizza with lamb and goat cheese

Libanese pizza with lamb and goat cheese 1
I love to make a good pizza, don’t you? The best ones are made on a thin base and topped with ingredients full of flavors, like this pizza! It’s my kind of pizza and I’m so excited to share it with you. This is how it comes together: first up is the vinaigrette with a lemony touch, it’s fresh and light and adds flavor to this pizza. Then it’s topped with cheese, minced lamb and vegetables, finally served with a garlic yogurt sauce and pomegranate seeds. It’s pretty much just perfection, but in all seriousness, I know you’ll love this pizza.
