Preparing the meat

  • Finely chop the red pepper.
  • Finely chop the onion.
  • Chop the tomatoes - without the seeds.
  • Chop the garlic cloves (don’t crush them).
  • Put everything in a bowl with meat, spices, tomato paste and olive oil.
  • Mix everything with your hands until all becomes unified.
  • Seal with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the dough finishes rising.

Making the laham ajeen!

  • The dough should be quite sticky – therefore you should flour up your hands and the work surface.
  • Divide the dough and form 3 balls.
  • Using a floured rolling pin, roll each ball long and wide - not thin (about half a cm thick).
  • Place the filling on the dough (about half a cm in height) nicely thin out the dough - leaving a border of at least one centimeter all the way around.
  • Spread olive oil on the sides.
  • Put the bottom of the oven at 480F for 10 minutes.
  • and it's ready!
  • Serve with tahini or lemon wedges.
