How to make?

    Lahmacun is a round, thin piece of dough topped with minced meat (most commonly beef or lamb), blended with finely chopped vegetables and herbs including onions, garlic, tomatoes, red peppers, and parsley, and well-balanced spices such as chili pepper, paprika, and then baked in super-hot stone oven until it gets crusty. Due to its shape and superficial similarity, it can be described as flatbread. However, unlike pizza or flatbread, Lahmacun is not usually prepared with cheese or sauce, and the crust is much thinner.

    It is made with unleavened dough and it is quite easy to make, the perfection of the crust always depends on the oven. The temperature should be evenly distributed in the oven and the baking time is essential since it takes only couple minutes to bake

   The topping is consist of finely chopped vegetables, ground beef and spice mixture. After adding the mince and knead them all together, some tomatoes or water may be added to adjust juicyness. Then it is just left to leave to rest.

   It is ready to bake, after the topping is applied on to the paper thin rolled dough. It only takes matter of minutes to get a well crusted Lahmacun in a proper oven. Each Lahmacun is perfectly portioned as 4oz each, and 2 pc usually more than enough for one.
