Kinghat Middle Eastern Pizza (Lahm Bi Ajeen)

Lahm bi ajeen is a Middle Eastern Meat Pizza. A thinly round rolled dough topped with minced meat. Most commonly beef or lamb, with vegetable, onions, tomatoes and Lebanese seven spices with pine nuts, then baked.

Ever street corner in Lebanon, you find a Lebanese bakery offering Lahm Bi Ajeen freshly served from breakfast till dinner time. One traditional way of making such a pies is to bake them on a saaj. A dome-shaped metal oven fired by wood or gas. 

I had this recipe from a friend of mine who had it from his mother. So easy to prepare and taste so good. We made the filling and took it to our local Lebanese bakery Al jabal in Action.
