1/4 Cup olive oil

Combine all the crust ingredients in a bowl to create a dough. Knead dough thoroughly and leave it to rise for at least an hour.

Tear off balls of dough, about enough to fill your hand (palm). On a board dusted with flour, roll out the dough thinly with a rolling pin to form the lahmacun (bread) bases look like pita. Ideally each base should be about 8 inches in diameter and 1/8 inch thick.

Then place tomatoes, red pepper, onion, and parsley in a food processor and blend to reach the consistency of a thin sauce. (around 2 minutes).

Place this mixture in a big bowl with the ground meat, salsa, olive oil, paprika, cumin, pepper, and salt.( Manually mix until all ingredients are integrated)

Pour 2 Tablespoon topping onto each base (bread), spreading evenly.

Place the disks into a oven. Preheat 435 F. (takes taround 5 and 8 minutes (until base is just crisp and topping is ready).

Add chili flakes and lemon juice.

Serve with Tomato Slices and fresh Parsley.
