Sasoun Bakery



Lahmadjune also known as Lahmadjun, Lamaju, Lahmadjun, Lahmajoun, Lahmacun, Lahmajin, and Lahmajeen is an Armenian meat based pizza that is loved the world over. The dish is traditionally made with ground lamb, lemon, and spices but can also be made with beef. There are many variations on Lahmadjune but we believe that Sasoun bakery is the best in the business.

History of Lahmajoun

Lahmadjune is a staple in Armenia. The name Lahmadjune translates into ‘dough with meat’ and is a favorite of people of all ages throughout the Middle East.

The dish is made by thinly stretching dough so that it is round and then it is topped with meat, spices, herbs, tomatoes and vegetables, depending on each family’s recipe. The spices used in Lahmadjune usually consist of cayenne pepper, paprika, cumin and cinnamon. Once all of the toppings are added it is baked and served straight away, nevertheless still being tasteful while served cold.

Sasoun Bakery has been lovingly hand making Lahmadjune for over 27 years. Many years have been spent listening to our elders in order to produce the best Lahmadjune in California.
