  • Step 3/4

    Preheat the oven to 250°C/475°F top/bottom heat. Divide the dough into 6 portions and shape into even balls. Place the balls on a lightly floured baking sheet, cover, and let rest for approx. 10 – 15 min. Roll out one dough ball thinly, place on a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread with about 2 tbsp of the beef mixture; the beef mixture should be spread out thinly and evenly. Bake for about 6 – 10 min. or until the lahmacun is lightly golden coloured. To speed things up, you can also use two baking sheets at a time to bake two pizzas at a time.
