Lahmacun Turkish pizzas

Tonight I made lahmacun Turkish pizzas on the XL. Took the egg to the highest temp so far and cooked them at 600. What can I say, they took 10 minutes and were wonderful. The beef topping was cooked perfectly and the bases were crisp. I used tahini paste as a sauce on the dough before putting the topping on.

    Are those more like pide? I don't know what makes lahmacun different except for the crust. Either way, they look awesome.

    Interesting. Never heard of lahmacun but with my lack of Turkish food knowledge, that ain't surprising. Looks tasty.

    That looks great and the recipe sounds wonderful.  I would like to try it with the salad on top.  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • Went through his recipes at work today. Some good looking stuff.

    Check out his two cookbooks, Plenty (vegetarian) and Jerusalem. Though you can get most of his recipes on line, the books are fantastic (and beautiful). His chicken with caramelized onions is truly special.
