Lahmacun

Lahmacun, Lahmajoun (IPA2|lahmaˈdʒun) or lahm bi-`ajĩn (From Arabic" لحم بعجين lahm bi-`ajĩn", "meat with dough") also known known as Turkish pizza and Armenian pizza [Armenian recipes: [http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,1977,FOOD_9936_34996,00.html] , [http://www.weheartfood.com/2007/09/lahmajoun-sfiha-meat-pies.html] ] is an Anatolian and Middle Eastern dish usually made up of a round, thin piece of dough topped with minced meat (most commonly beef and lamb). Lahmacun is often sprinkled with lemon juice, and then served rolled up with pickles or other vegetables, including tomatoes, peppers and onions.

Availability

Lahmacun is most prominently made and sold in Turkey, Armenia, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, Iraq, Georgia, Iran and Syria, where there are many restaurants that cater solely to lahmacun – these are called "furn lahm bi-`ajĩn" (lahm bi-ajin bakery) in Arabic. It can also be found in countries with sizeable Arabian communities. In Canada, there are Turkish, Armenian and Lebanese restaurants specializing in lahmacun. In many German and Dutch restaurants that sell kebab, lahmacun is usually filled with vegetables like lettuce, red cabbage, onions and others and topped off with kebab meat and a sauce (usually spicy on a tomato base or mild on a yoghurt base); it is then rolled into a tube to be eaten right away.
