I can only second Arnaud and Emile : Django is very probably what you're 
looking for, and by all means better than any PHP thingie - wrt/ both 
development time and security.

You'll indeed first have to learn the framework (and Python of course), 
and learn how to deploy your app in production (which can be a bit 
tricky if you're not familiar with server admin), but there's a good 
documentation and a very helpful community around both the Django 
framework and the Python language.
