Lahmacun (Turkish Pizza)

Lahmacun is Turkey's answer to pizza. We've tested it and absolutely fell in love with it. It consists of a thin crispy dough, that is topped with lamb or beef mince, flavored with some spices and herbs. It is served hot, right out of the oven and cheese is definitely not on the toppings list.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
