  • Sufficient quantity, extra-virgin olive oil


In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, brown the lardoons and chorizo for 5 minutes.

Add the onion and peppers, and continue cooking until the meat starts to brown and the vegetables soften.

Add the garlic, Espelette pepper, paprika, mushrooms, and turkey. Let simmer 3 minutes.

Remove from the heat and allow to rest 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 450°F (220°C).

Cut the pizza dough into two pieces.

On a floured work surface, with a pastry roller, roll out the 2 pieces of dough until 1/4 in. (6 mm) thick.

Cover a 10» x 15» (25 cm x 38 cm) baking sheet with parchment paper and baste with olive oil.

Place the dough on the paper and baste with olive oil.

Put the turkey mixture on the dough, leaving an edge of 1/2 in. (1 cm) all around.

Add the cheese evenly.

Cover with the second piece of dough and seal firmly, pressing down with the tines of a fork all along the edge.

Baste the surface with olive oil and sprinkle the grated parmesan cheese.

Make 3 or 4 slits in the dough to allow steam to escape.

Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden.

May be served hot or warm.
