The vicinity to France's Alsace and the fact that both regions often belonged together in the course of time brought us Flammkuchen. This is the thin crispy pizza-like "Tarte Flambée" as it is being called in Alsace. It tastes delicious and as you can see from my photos, a variety of different toppings are offered. The classic version is in my first photo: onions, bacon and cream sauce.

VTer Jean-Louis has visited his Alsace and wrote extensively about the villages. For a detailed description of the French version of Flammkuche, called Flammekueche, please see his Flammekueche at Kintzheim
