Lahmacun is a dish made by placing kneaded meat on a thinly rolled dough.
What is the Origin of the Word Lahmacun?
Lahmacun is an Arabic word. It is a combination of the words meat and dough. The first known form in history is mentioned in Evliya Çelebi's book named Seyahatname (before 1680).
How is Lahmacun Made?
First, the dough is prepared and rolled out thinly. The meat to be put on it is blended with tomatoes, parsley, tomato paste, onions and various spices. Then the prepared meat is added on the rolled dough and cooked in a stone oven.
Lahmacun made in a stone oven is much more delicious and beautiful than those made in other ovens. The lahmacuns we make as Flatbread Turkish Bakery House are completely handcrafted and cooked in our stone oven and presented to you.
