"Flammekueche" is a typical Alsacian speciality - and it is sooooooo delicious!!!

This is the pizza of Alsace, a paper-thin crust topped with bacon, onion and a creamy fromage blanc, and baked in a wood-fire oven (a very hot home oven will do just fine). . Here is a recipe, if you like to try:

Ingredients :
bread dough
2 large chopped onions
thick cream

smoked bacon cut into strips
1 table spoon oil
salt, grated nurmeg, pepper

Roll out the bread dough thinly, place on a baker?s oven peel, cover with onions, bacon and seasoned cream and sprinkle over with the oil.

Bake in a very hot oven and eat right away!
