Lahmacun with salad from Turkish Cuisine

Lahmacun (Armenian: լահմաջուն lahmaǰun or լահմաջո lahmaǰo; Turkish: Lahmacun from Arabic: لحم عجين‎, laḥm ʿajīn, short for لحم بعجين‎, laḥm biʿajīn, "meat with dough") is a round, thin piece of dough topped with minced meat (most commonly beef and lamb) and minced vegetables and herbs including onions, tomatoes and parsley, then baked. Lahmacun is often served sprinkled with ayran or şalgam and wrapped around vegetables, including pickles, tomatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce, and roasted eggplant.[1] [2][3][4]

It is also known as "Armenian pizza" and also "Turkish pizza."[5][6][7][8][9]
