The meat-topped flatbread known as lahmajoun is popular in Turkey and Armenia. We’ve created an easy weeknight version by swapping the usual homemade flatbread dough for store-bought pita breads. Simply combine the meat mixture in a food processor and spread onto pita, then bake in a hot oven. When processing the mixture, don’t overdo it or the meat may become tough. Pulse a few times, just until combined. If you like, finish the dish with a sprinkling of fresh herbs and a drizzle of cooling yogurt to complement the spiced meat.

Didn't work
I followed this recipe exactly. The pita bread burned to a crisp while the meat never cooked and stayed cold. Waste of time and ingredients and I was left without dinner.
