This week the same friend who went to cooking class with me helped make Flammkuchen also known as Tarte Flambée. She expalined it to me as french fast food home cooking. So refer to it as french pizza. We used a recipe from Beyond Burgers and Bratwurst and now I think I have another new favorite food. Again I was not completely satisfied with the crust so I would like to try it again with a yeast dough crust but we chose that particular recipe because we didn’t have a lot of time to let it rise and sit and such. The dough was very easy to roll very thin. This recipe was a fast simple delicious treat! We had it with bacon wrapped asparagus, some broccoli in brown butter and foie gras. I added a glass of wine on the side of mine.
(from Beyond Burgers and Bratwurst)
2 cups Flour
2.5 Tbsp Oil
2/3 cup Water
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup Crème Frâiche
1 onion (can be red or sweet onions)
1 Tbsp Butter
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 clove Garlic
Preheat the oven to 450F.
Combine ingredients for crust. The dough shouldn’t be sticky and should turn smooth and slightly stretchy. Roll out the dough as thinly as possible and place on a baking sheet or pizza pan or stone.
Thinly slice onions and sauté in butter until clear (don’t caramelize). Cook bacon until crisp. I prefer to cook bacon in the oven for a nice even crispness. Finely chop garlic and add it with seasonings to the cream.
Spread the creme fraiche over the rolled out dough and top with the bacon and onions.
Bake for around 10-15 minutes, or until the dough has begun to create bubbles and you see nice browning (you don’t want burnt!).
