Have you ever tried Lahmacun? It’s some kind of Turkish Pizza which you can find in every corner in Turkey. Normally it’s being cooked in big brick ovens but you can also cook them in a pan with your home comfort.
I think you will love love love Lahmacun!

Ingredients: (you can buy the ingredients directly by clicking on them)

For the dough:
1 ½ cup milk
1 cup warm water
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. salt
1 package baking powder
5 – 5 ½ cup flour

For the filling
400 gr. (0,89 lb.) ground beef
2 onions
3 green chiles
1 tomato
5 tsp parsley
1 tbsp. tomato paste
1 tbsp. pepper paste
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. salt

Directions:

The dough:
Put your warm milk in a mixing bowl. Add olive oil and salt then start adding the flour slowly. After that start adding warm water until the dough consistency will be sticky such as you can give shapes with your hand.
(Or you can also make your dough in your stand mixer with a dough hook. All you need to do is put all the materials in the bowl and knead.)
After the dough gets to the right consistency pour some flour to your counter and cut equal small pieces from your dough. (approx. 20-25 pcs.) Put your little pieces of doughs to the floured counter and cover them with a moisty towel. Let it rest for about 30 minutes.

The filling:
Put all the ingredients for the filling except ground beef in your food processor and chop very well. Mix your ground beef and chopped ingredients together.

Cooking:
Preheat your pan with a lid.
Place your dough on your floured counter and roll into a circle about your pan size with your rolling pin. Do it for all pieces of doughs.
Take one piece of round dough to the preheated pan. Cover it with a thin layer of your filling and put the lid on. It takes about 2-4 minutes until each lahmacun cooks. Do not take the lid off from your pan in this process because lahmacuns will be cook with the steam in the pan. Take your lahmacun off from the pan when the bottom is fried.
Take your cooked lahmacun in an empty pot and cover its lid immediately. Cook all your lahmacuns and put them to the pot as one normally and one upside down. This will prevent to lahmacuns get to dry.
Squeeze some lemon on your lahmacun, put some greens if you like, wrap it and enjoy!
