Add the leaks, season with salt and\ pepper and cook over mod. heat until softened, about 8 min; transfer to a plate. Add the 2 Tbs. of olive oil to the skillet. Add the lamb, season with salt and pepper and cook until no pink remains, about 5 min. Generously flour a pizza peel. Place a dough round on the peel and brush with olive oil.

Repeat with the remaining ingredients and serve
