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 or 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]

The dish is sometimes known under different names, like "Turkish pizza"[5][6] or "Armenian pizza".[7][8]
