Turkish Pide

I made Turk Pide, or pizza, last night for a dinner party. It turned out pretty damn good.
Here’s the recipe:
Make a pizza dough in your bread maker (yes, I cheat), with a bit of whole wheat flour.
For cheese topping (the kids really loved this) mix :
1 raw egg, some crumbled feta and a small amount of shredded mozzarella, salt and pepper
For lahmacun filling mix:
Raw ground lamb, minced onion, minced parsley, chopped green pepper, crushed red pepper, allspice, salt and pepper
Shape dough very thin, like a long football.
Spread filling thinly in center. Roll up the edges. Bake in hot oven.
Serve with pile of parsley or cilantro and lemon wedges.
Afiyet olsen.

Looks impressive... You should consider opening a "Turkish Pide House"...

I hope you like it. The lamb is very unique; it's not really pizza cause no cheese. I miss eating this dish, which is one of the most common street foods in Turkey.
Happy Holidays!
