Turquoise Grill

Daniel Kramer

Domino's has nothing on the Turkish lahmajun pizza (a.k.a. lahmacun pide) ($5.99) at Turquoise Grill (3701 Kirby, 713-526-3800). Lahmajun is an Arabic word that means "meat on dough." The pizza's wafer-thin, hand-formed crust is extra crispy as it emerges from the brick oven. It's topped with a mixture of finely minced beef and lamb, along with onions, green peppers, tomatoes, paprika, parsley and a spritz of lemon juice. Lahmajun might also mean "quickly disappears," since that's precisely what happens with this dish.
