Lahmacun (also lahmajun and other spellings) is a round, thin piece of dough topped with minced meat (most commonly beef or lamb), minced vegetables and herbs including onions, garlic, tomatoes, red peppers, and parsley, and spices such as chili pepper, paprika, and cinnamon, then baked. Lahmacun is often wrapped around vegetables, including pickles, tomatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce, parsley, and roasted eggplant. Though it is sometimes described as Turkish pizza or similar names, it has only in modern times been referred to as "pizza", and it is of Middle Eastern rather than European origin. Furthermore, unlike pizza, lahmacun is not usually prepared with cheese and the crust is thinner. Lahmacun is a popular dish in in Turkey (lahmacun), Lebanon and Syria (lahm bi 'ajin), Israel, and in Armenia and Arab communities worldwide.
