Mediterranean Pizza & Lentil Bell Pepper Salad [F&F]

Mediterranean Pizza & Lentil SaladI promise, I did make an effort to look for the lamb called for in the recipe this month for the Flatbread & Flavors baking group. My local grocery store flat out said they didn’t have it and a busy week kept me from looking for it anywhere else.

Lentil Bell Pepper Salad & Mediterranean PizzaAs I began to make the dough and what I thought was “filling,” I read and re-read until it finally dawned on me that the dough balls were being rolled out into small circles which would be topped with the meat & tomato mixture. Sound familiar? Yeah, once I realized I was making pizza I couldn’t fathom why there was no cheese “to hold it all on.” I did roll the dough out and “top it” but actually folded several over so they would be more like empanadas. That just worked better for me!

It was a wonderful salad but equally delicious heated up with some brown rice and topped with an Andean Hot Sauce, because that was the spice in my fridge.

Lachmanjan & Lentil and Sweet Pepper Salad were chosen by Tanna of My Kitchen in Half Cups for Flatbreads & Flavors.

  1. Your photos show me you got the size of these little breads just perfect. Lentils are really high on my list too. I love that they are so healthy and take on so many flavors!
    Don’t obsess on the lamb, just good meat will do the trick with this I think.
