Lahmajoun, or the Armenian pizza as my kids call it, are not only delicious, they are so filling too! So when my husband makes them, we keep some of the sauce separate and instead of minced meat we add mushrooms! It’s really that easy. Add some lemon juice and you will not be able to stop!
3 tbsp. tomato paste
1 tbsp. minced flat-leaf parsley
1⁄2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1⁄4 tsp. ground cumin
1⁄4 tsp. sweet paprika
1⁄8 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 oz. finely chopped mushroom
2 cloves garlic, minced
