    I agree with the ladies. In order to keep with the authentic taste of lahmacun, oftern referred to as "Turkish Pizza", you need to keep with the original spices involved in making the meal. The recipe doesnt call for cinnamon which can alter the flavor. After preperation, I like to add thinly sliced tomatoes and kirby on top of the lahmacun, a pinch of cumin, some lemon, then I roll up it and enjoy. Yum. Helens reciepe sounds good too; she just included her own touch!

    i agree with Elif, this is not exactly the right recipe. if it's done in a right way with the right recipe ,it can be a delicious snack or main course. but i don't think that it's "lahmacun",i think it's "pide".

    Hi,this is a traditional Turkish recipe and its name is 'lahmacun'.thank you very much for that recipe. But anissa helou's recipe is not right one.and traditionally its not include cinnamon and allsipice. lahmacun's topping should include parsley.and it should serve with lemon slices,parsley and onion slices.very delicous and you should try it.because its a good thing! if you like you could look at that recipe bets regards
