Lahmajoon (Armenian Pizza) Recipe

Lahmajoon (Armenian Pizza) Recipe

With my family's Armenian background, I grew up surrounded by great cooks. Since Armenian food is time-consuming and labor-intensive, cooking for any party started weeks in advanced. I learned to cook from my mom but have revamped many of her dishes to make them healthier, simpler and quicker, like this version of Armenian Pizza. —Jean L. Ecos, Hartland, Wisconsin

"Easy, fresh (if you use fresh tomatoes and herbs), and delicious! Our German exchange student pronounced it very similar to the Turkish pizza popular in Germany."

"Delicious! I love the many layers of flavour. I served this as suggested in the magazine topped with the Armenian Garden Salad and folded in half and ate like a taco. Yummy!"

"My grandmother was Armenian, lahmajoon is my favorite memory of food she would have ready for us kids when we would visit.Sadly, I never got her recipe, so I experimented as I got older. This recipe looks very good! When I crave those flavors I remember, I do use lamb, sometimes grinding it myself, and use naan bread or pita. I also cover the bread with seasoned tomato paste first, then layer the rest like you would pizza."

"This is an easy and simple recipe. I used fresh mint instead of dried. I love the freshness of mint. We also topped the lettuce with a little sour cream."
