lahma bi ajeen لحم بعجين (Lamb Pizza)

This lamb pizza is awesome!  If you ever had Turkish pide this is very similar.  This is a Lebanese origin open face meat pie called “lahma bi ajeen” which translates into english as “Meat on dough”.  In Arabic restaursnts that serve this dish you will find it being called a “Lamb Pizza”.   To me its more of a meat pie but I understand why its called a lamb pizza.  There are no limitations to this dish and you can add whatever toppings you want but the standard is just lamb meat mix with pine nuts.  Whatever name you give the meat pie or combination you try,  this pizza is definitely delicious either way you name or eat it!
