Lamb and Sweet Potato Spelt Pizza

I’m so excited to share this recipe with you – I know you’re going to love it! My Lamb and Sweet Potato Spelt Pizza is the ultimate Friday night dinner.

Spelt flour makes the perfect alternative base to wheat flour. Spelt is a lot lower in gluten than wheat flour, which explains why it doesn’t rise quiet as high. If you’re allergic to wheat, this pizza base isn’t for you – I would try a cauliflower pizza base instead and follow the steps for the lamb and sweet potato. Try using the same base and swapping up your toppings for your favourite alternatives!

If you’re looking for another pizza, try my chickpea flour pizza with kale and pesto!

I hope you enjoy them, and remember I love seeing your re-creations, so please share them with me via InstagramFacebook and Twitter using #gettheglow #madeleineshaw

Serves 2 Ready in 120 minutes


To make the pizza base mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Slowly add the warm water, stirring as you add it in. Then repeat this with the oil. Mix this together until you form a dough. Knead the dough for 15 mins until it becomes stretchy.

Place the dough back in the mixing bowl and cover in a warm place for 1 hour to double in size. Once this is done, divide in half and roll into balls, drizzle over a little avocado oil and place on a avocado oil drizzled roasting tray. Leave covered for another 30 mins.

Preheat the oven to 220C

While you are waiting for the oven to heat up, chop the onion and sweet potato into thin slithers and sauté in 1 tbsp of avocado oil for 4 minutes, throw in the garlic, cumin, coriander, tomato paste, nutmeg and a pinch of salt, cook for another few minutes then leave to the side to cool. Boil the kettle and steam the sweet potato slithers for 5 minutes until tender.

Roll the dough out so it is nice and thin and top with the lamb mince then sweet potato and toast in the oven  for 10 minutes until golden and crisp.

Top with toasted pine nuts, coriander and oregano.
