English term or phrase: Arab-style pizza?
Hi,

I'm afraid I'm a bit confused here. Yesterday my sister cooked me something she described as “lahma bi ajeen” (she doesn't speak Arabic), but which I knew from Turkey as “lahm majun” (literally “meat paste”) or rather, as one word, "lahmajun". However, I can tell you that it was much the same as a pizza, but with a mainly meaty mixture on top. Please write the term in Arabic writing.

All the best,

Simon

agree  Rifat Ali: لحم بعجين، لأنه الصفيحة تختلف من حيث نوع العجينة وخلطة اللحمة الموضوعة على العجين، آسف ومن دون أي تهجم يا أخت لميس

  ->  :-) رفعت، نفس الأكلة اسمها بسورية صفيحة وبلبنان لحم بعجين، أنا سورية ولبنانية، يعني ثق برأيي على الأقل من ناحية الطبخ

agree  zkt: سلام اللحم بعجين والصفيحة نفس الأكلة ولكن الصفيحة في لبنان مشهورة في بعلبك شكلها مربّع وحجمها أصغر من اللحم بعجين أما المناقيش فيمكن أن تكون بالزعتر أو بالجبنة البيضاء أو بالكشك وصحتين :-(
