Good things from a small kitchen.
We have some great Turkish restaurants in the UK, and a while ago a friend of mine with Cypriot heritage suggested I try Lahmacun, a thin bread base with a spiced lamb and tomato topping. Calling it Turkish pizza doesn’t really do it justice as its quite different and the delicate spicing is fantastic, my version is an approximation based on the real thing using some ingredients I had at home, but you can find authentic recipes on the internet.
I started with a standard pizza dough recipe and let it prove for a few hours. Meanwhile i made some Baba Ganoush with some delicious smokey aubergine ( this is a good recipe http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/baba_ganoush_44415 ) to use as the sauce for the base. When the dough was ready I rolled out a circle and spread the baba ganoush over in a thin layer. Then i spread on some chopped tomatoes with most of the juice squeezed out, some spiced roast lamb that i had left over and frozen from the weekend before, chopped Halloumi, sliced aubergine, pine nuts and chilli.
