Lahmajoun (Arabic: لحم بعجين‎‎; Armenian: լահմաջու lahmaǰu or լահմաջո lahmaǰo; Turkish: lahmacun from Arabic: لحم عجين‎‎, laḥm ʿajīn, short for Arabic: لحم بعجين‎‎, laḥm bi-ʿajīn, "meat with dough") is a round, thin piece of dough topped with minced meat (most commonly beef or lamb), minced vegetables and herbs including onions, tomatoes and parsley, and spices such as cayenne pepper, paprika, cumin and cinnamon, then baked. Lahmacun is often served with ayran or şalgam and wrapped around vegetables, including pickles, tomatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce, and roasted eggplant.

Other than Lahmajoun (Arabic: لحم بعجين‎‎), Sfiha and Manakish are also other dishes with toppings on top of dough (Meat, Zaatar, Jibneh) that originated in the Levant. Lahmacun is a popular dish in Armenia, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, and in Armenian and Turkish communities worldwide. The dish has existed for thousands of years but has become much more popular over the last few decades. The dish is sometimes known as "Armenian pizza" or "Turkish pizza". Due to the hostile nature of the relations between Armenia and Turkey, the opening of Armenian restaurants serving the food in Turkey had caused protests.
