Lahmacun Pizza

Yesterday I posted and shared my pide pizza recipe and today I am going to present Lahmacun pizza. A pizza that is incredibly flavoured and satisfying. It is a a kind of very thin flatbread topped with minced beef or lamb.

This pizza is popular in Turkey, Armenia and Lebenan. That’s why it is known as Turkish or Armenian pizza too.

Lahmacun pizza might be cooked in a pan or on a griddle or in the oven. I personally cook in a pan.

Lahmacun means meat and dough as you spread meat mixture on a flattened dough and cook it.

This pizza after cooking is crunchy and crispy but after few hours flat bread turn into soft and lovely bread and still is fantastic and you can roll it and eat it with salad, lime, onion, and doogh ( a Persian beverage combination of yogurt with water).

Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am a photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
