This Super Easy Keto Lahmacun is set to become every family’s favourite.
What is a Lahmacun? Lahmacun is basically an Armenian or Turkish pizza, that is made with mince meat that has been mixed with vegetables, herbs and spices, and is made very thin. Traditionally it is topped with some extra raw vegetables, a squeeze of lemon and rolled up and eaten that way. It is truly delicious, and also extremely easy to make.
What I love about lahmacun, is that you have a very fresh thin “meat bread” that you can top with yummy salad and seriously enjoy for any meal. It is great for a lunch legend, a breakfast wrap topped with an egg, or at dinner time topped with a greek salad.

If you are not a lamb lover you also easily swap this out for any protein or vegetarian alternatives.
This version here of Christine Ladewigs is made with beef mince and she added a hot sauce and garlic sauce to the mix to spice them up a bit. If you love your spices and heat then dial it up and enjoy your lahmacun the way you would like it.
