Mediterranean Spiced Lamb - Prego

Prego’s Chef Mauro Sanna dips into his Italian roots by making a spice lamb pizza that simultaneously redefines a pizza and pays homage to the sheep breeding that populates Sardinia - where Chef Mauro is originally from.


Mauro Sanna

Italian Chef

Lamb is one type of meat that is present in most of Chef Mauro’s life. He came from an island where the economy is based on sheep breeding. Not known to many, Sardinia is the place where sheep has the highest density number per capita.


There are many lamb dishes that he loves having. Some examples are simple roast on a spit or stews with artichokes or peas.  What he really loves is stewed lamb with the aroma of wild fennel and Bosane olives. 


True Aussie lamb is used for the pizza as it stands well in high temperatures and still remains juicy when the pizza is in the ovens.
