Flammkuchen: pizza, Alsace-style

This wafer-thin dish made of bread dough is a speciality from neighbouring Alsace that is now widespread on the Basel side of the border. The "Alsace pizza" is scattered with crème fraîche, red onions and bacon, and baked in a wood oven. Other ingredients can be added at will – with Flammkuchen, the only limits are to your imagination!
