Here it comes – an easy lahmacun recipe. If you would like to check out the original recipe, which still tastes divine, click here. The idea of using a pre-made dough for easy Lahmacun recipe came about pretty suddenly, in the shape of a dough, which I would typically use for quesadillas. It would take such a long time to roll out the dough from the original recipe, I honestly would limit making this dish to once in a couple of months. After the discovery of Fresca Tortillas, I can whip these easy lahmacuns very quickly. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you will find an easy print out for this recipe.
This pizza-like, thin, round dish, topped with herbs and minced meat (also known as Armenian Pizza, Turkish Pizza, Lahmajun and Lahmajoon) is very famous in Armenia and Turkey. In fact, that’s how I first found it. My first visit to Turkey with my schoolmates left a lot of pleasant memories. Aside from staying at 5 star hotels and having a big allowance to splurge on anything I wanted (through high school sponsorship), I fell in love with the Turkish kitchen.
