To Prepare Meat Filling:
Chop all vegetables very fine, or put them through the medium blade of a meat grinder.
Mix together meat, vegetables and seasonings, as well as tomato paste, whole tomatoes with juice and lemon juice.
Blend well.
To Prepare Dough:
Sift flour into large bowl.
Dissolve yeast as directed on the package, using 1 cup of the lukewarm water in recipe.
Combine dissolved yeast, remaining 1/2 cup water, oil and salt; stir and pour over flour.
Blend well and knead dough into a soft smooth dough.
Dough should be softer than bread dough.
Cover; let stand 1 or 2 hours, until double in size.
Punch down dough.
Divide into 36 to 40 balls.
Roll out each ball on a well floured board into very thin 6 to 7 inch circles.
Arrange on greased baking sheets.
Spread evenly with the meat mixture, right to the edge of the circle, and press down lightly with fingers.
Bake in a 500 degree oven for 6 to 8 minutes on a wire rack.
Stack two together and cover pies to prevent from drying.
Combine in this manner until dough and meat mixture is used.
Serve hot with tossed salad.
