“laham ajeen” – Turkish Pizza

By January 21, 2015

laham ajeen or Lhmag'on is a kind of Turkish pizza which combines airy pizza dough with a spiced meat mixture…..super-delicious! The combination is of course amazing. Lahmi bajin is originally made with lamb, but beef is just as good!

  • Prep Time : 60 minutes
  • Cook Time : 10 minutes
  • Yield : 3 פיצות



Let's start with the dough!

  • With the help of a mixer, mix the yeast and flour on a low speed to start.
  • Gradually add 2 and half tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Add the salt.
  • Add the water slowly and continue to mix until the dough is quite sticky yet solid.
  • Sprinkle a little flour over the dough, seal the bowl with a towel - and leave it to rise until it doubles in size.

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.
