1/2 red onions
peeled and thinly sliced
A handful of rocket

To Make Pizza
Preheat the oven to 230°C.
Place a tray or pizza stone into the oven to preheat. You need a cooking surface that heats up and stays hot. A pizza stone, oven rack lined with quarry tiles or even a simple overturned sheet pan will work, so long as you give it ample time to preheat. If you have a wood-burning pizza oven, start the fire 45 minutes to an hour before you begin baking.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan.
Season the lamb steak with salt and pepper and fry for 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked to your liking.
Rest for 5 minutes before slicing into strips.
Spread the aioli on the pizza base and top the pizza with the lamb strips, red onion, red pepper and fresh mozzarella.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the base is crispy and the cheese is golden brown.
Remove from the oven, drizzle with sriracha aioli and top with fresh rocket.
