flatbread pizza recipe

This Alsatian ‘pizza’ is so delicious, and the crust is so thin and crispy you can eat much more than you might think.  This is the traditional recipe, with a fromage frais/sour cream base, but you can  mix it up if you want – the crust actually holds up well to some heavier ingredients.  You can, of course, also make this vegetarian, just with onions, or add something a bit more hearty, like chopped eggplant, or zucchini.  It’s really delicious, and the next time you want to mix up ‘pizza night’ give it a try.  : )

  • Yield : makes 2 pizzas, enough for 2 - 4 people



  • In a large bowl, stir together the flour,  oil, salt and water very well with a wooden spoon, then set aside.  (add more water if it's too dry or more flour if the dough is too sticky)
  • In a separate bowl, mix the sour cream and the fromage frais until blended, then stir in the nutmeg, salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C).
  • In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crispy, then remove from the pan and drain.
  • Remove most of the bacon grease from the pan, leaving about 1 tbsp, then saute the onion until it starts to brown, about 3 - 5 minutes, then remove from heat.
  • Line two baking sheets with baking paper or aluminium foil, then grease the paper.
  • Divide the dough into 2 equal parts, place on baking sheets and form into a large rectangle using your fingers, making the dough as thin as possible.
  • Spread the dough with a thin layer of the sour cream/fromage frais mix, then sprinkle the bacon and onions on top.
  • Place the baking sheets in the top and bottom thirds of the oven and bake for about 15 - 20 minutes, or until the edges of the dough begin to brown - rotate the pans from top to bottom and back to front halfway through cooking.
