  • Greek-style yoghurt, to serve

  • Rocket, to serve

  • Fresh continental parsley sprigs, to serve

  • Lemon wedges, to serve

Spicy lamb topping

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped

  • 1/2 red capsicum, deseeded, finely chopped

  • 1/2 green capsicum, deseeded, finely chopped

  • 3 garlic cloves

  • 500g lamb or beef mince

  • 2 roma tomatoes, halved, deseeded, finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh continental parsley

  • 70g (1/4 cup) tomato paste

  • 1 teaspoon allspice

  • 1/2 teaspoon Masterfoods Chilli Flakes

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Three-cheese topping

  • 1 egg, lightly whisked

  • 200g (2 cups) coarsely grated mozzarella

  • 100g haloumi, thinly sliced

  • 100g feta, coarsely crumbled


  • Step 1

    For the spicy lamb topping, heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add the onion, capsicum and garlic. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes or until softened. Transfer to a large heatproof bowl. Set aside to cool. Add the mince, tomato, parsley, tomato paste, allspice, chilli and cinnamon. Season well. Use your hands to knead to combine.

  • Step 2

    Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Use a large serrated knife to carefully slice the pides in half horizontally. Use a spatula to firmly spread the lamb mixture over both cut sides of 1 split pide to create even layers.

  • Step 3

    For the three-cheese topping, combine the egg and mozzarella in a bowl. Spread the mixture over both cut sides of the remaining pide. Top with haloumi and crumble over feta.

  • Step 4

    Transfer pides to the prepared trays. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until crisp and golden. Top the lamb pide with yoghurt. Sprinkle rocket and parsley over pides. Serve with lemon wedges.
