Vegetarian Lahmacun Turkish version of Pizza with a soft, thin crust with just a little bit of cheese and chopped veggies. Perfect as on-the-go food.
My family loves Pizza. Both my kids have polar opposite tastes in food, but the only thing that both of them like is Pizza. I am always looking for pizza recipes, especially ones that are unique and different from what we get in pizza corners here in the US. In that quest, I have tried quite a few different versions. Today, I have a delicious vegetarian Lahmacun from Turkey.This month’s host of Bread Bakers is lovely Karen who blogs at Karen’s Kitchen Stories. Our theme for the month is “Middle Eastern Breads’. I love middle eastern food and try new recipes all the time. I tried some amazing Middle Eastern breads in the past, like this Naan-e-barberi and this Pita bread.
Today, I have a delicious pizza recipe from Turkey – it has a thin crust and is usually served and eaten folded. Amount of cheese used is much light compared to the American versions. Traditionally Turkish peynir is used, but mozzarella is a great alternate. But if you want to make a vegan version, recipe is below.
