(from Beyond Burgers and Bratwurst)
NOTE: I use a yeast dough crust.
2 cups Flour
2.5 Tbsp Oil
2/3 cup Water
1/4 tsp salt
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!).

This looks delicious, Ann. I'm going to have to make this – maybe tonight!!
Ann, I've had a very similar recipe for years that called for a tart pan. It was given to me by a friend whose grandmother made it. She never had a name for it-simply onion tart. Your version looks fabulous! I'll be trying it Thank you!xoxo Pattie
I have had this many times but not in a pizza shape….yours looks wonderful!I want a piece right now!L xo
Ann..what's not to like? I just went snowshoeing..this would be divine!!!!
I'm glad you liked it. It looks wonderful.
Now this sounds absolutely lovely!! I will definitely give this a try!!
I'm smelling this from here. Oh, yes, deeee-lish! I'll take a big wedge of that, please. And I'd probably overcome my shyness and ask for another!
I have never heard of a Flammkuchen before. I would love to try this. It looks so good.
I am going to concur….I think by the very nature of the ingredients that this MUST be a winner. Love love love it all..
This looks lovely! I may have to make one!
Hello dear Ann, thank you so much for featuring this recipe (and thank you to Dana, too!) It looks fabulous.Finally our colds are passing and we can \”taste\” again! lol.I know this would be such a treat. Your photos are sublime. xo
Oh my, this looks wonderful, Ann. Who could resist the toppings you've used. I was planning on making pizza today. I must try your version.
I've heard about this recipe, and I keep telling myself I should make it. I'm not afraid of yeast, but have been enviously seeing your beautiful work with baguettes and shaped breads. (I've been remiss in leaving comments, sorry). I will write down this on my \”must make\” list (which keeps growing). I love creme fraiche!
