Generally most of the Lahmacun / Lahmajoun recipes are pretty similar. There is some room for variation but if you do want to keep authentic the recipe is as follows. I did use as a reference for this dish.
  • 12-16 Ounce ground beef
  • 2 Tbsp Ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp red pepper paste
  • 1 Tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 Large lemon, juice of
  • 1 Cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 Tbsp chopped mint
  • 1 Tsp cumin
  • 1 Tsp paprika
  • ½ Red pepper
  • ½ Green pepper
  • 1 Tomato skinned and chopped
  1. Preheat your oven to 450F/232C and place a pizza stone in your oven. If you don't have a pizza stone you can just use an oven pan to cook your Lahmacun / Lahmajoun.
  2. Place your ground beef aside. Add your all your other ingredients into a food processor and pulse in a fine spreadable spread. Don't pulse to the point where you can't tell what ingredients are in the spread.
  3. Add the pureed mixture to your meat and mix thoroughly.
  4. Take a handful of the mixture and place it on your round dough that you rolled out. Use your hands to spread the meat mixture as close to the edge of the dough.
  5. Use a pizza peel or parchment paper to place your Lahmacun / Lahmajoun on the pizza stone or oven pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes. Remove and Enjoy.
