Lahmacun is a popular street food found in Turkey. A ground meat and vegetable mixture is spread onto fresh dough and baked until cripsy. It's the perfect food to roll up and eat. Typically it is eaten plain but you can get creative and add extra toppings, herbs, spices and cheeses. It's up to you to make your own version of Lahmacun!
Lahmacun is also known as Turkish Pizza. Every country has their own version of fresh baked dough topped with sauces and toppings. Pizza doesn't quite describe this dish though, because it is so much more than pizza. It's a delicious flatbread, topped with meat, lots of spices, and flavour. Fresh dough is rolled out thinly, topped with spicy ground meat, baked until crispy, and then topped with fresh herbs, onions, cheese and tomatoes. It's the perfect dish!
