Dairy free Flamenkuche

Flamenkuche 32

Flamenkuche is a typical dish from the East of France which has been inspired by the German. Last time that I made the dish for some friends of mine, I texted them that I will make that, they googled it and they decided to call it a “German pizza” which is pretty true.

The traditional recipe is made with pretty thick crème fraiche and the dough is pretty thin. I prefer to make mine, lighter using a mix of yogurt and cream and make it on a fluffy dough.

How to make a dairy free Flamenkuche?

  • Start by preparing the dough, in a large bowl mix together Water, Salt, Olive oil, Sugar and add Flour and Yeast and then knead the bread dough by hand
  • If you have a bread maker, put all the ingredients in the order quoted in the ingredients section and use the dough/kneading program (usually 15 minutes long)
  • Leave the dough to rest in a warm environment for 40 minutes
  • Then make a big ball of the dough and roll the dough for making a large rectangular dough base

! The size of the dough should be big enough for covering a standard size baking tray

  • Cover the baking tray with baking parchment and lay down the dough
  • Peel the onion and slice them thinly

! Use a mandolin for having quite similar onion slices

  • In a bowl, mix together the yogurt with the cream for having a semi-liquid texture
  • Spread the texture on top of the dough
  • Then add the sliced onion and the pancetta
  • Add salt and pepper
  • Leave it to rest 30 minutes
  • Bake it at 180°C/200°C for 15 to 20 minutes
  • Serve it straight away on a big chopping board and make some square pieces
