Vegan Lahmacun/Vegan Turkish Pizza

Lahmacun, this oval shaped Turkish pizza is traditionally baked with spicy lamb or minced beef topping. However Vegan and vegetarian versions do exists.As i told in my previous post, i baked three different and definitely delicious pizzas for this week's blogging marathon. My kids are ardent fan of pizzas, and obviously my kids went crazy once these homemade pizzas came out of the oven. Lahmacun, am trying my hands with this Turkish pizza for the first time and its completely vegan. You may wonder how can we bake this Turkish pizza as vegan version, yes we can. Actually, in this vegan pizza, those spicy lamb or minced beef topping is replaced with a mushroom and walnut topping.

Vegan Turkish Pizza

My theme for this week's blogging marathon is Pizzas, after a cheese loaded Fusion paneer pizza, i couldnt stop myself to bake this Vegan Turkish pizza for this theme. You wont miss meat in this pizza as mushroom and walnut mixture replace very well meat here. However if you are a meat lover, prepare this same pizza with minced meat spiced as much as like mushroom-walnut mixture. Trust me, vegan lovers will definitely fell in love with this extremely flavourful Turkish pizza. The crispy crust of this pizza tastes absolutely amazing and everyone enjoyed thoroughly this ultimate pizza when served with some salads.
