Flammkuchen Recipe

A versatile Flammkuchen recipe with options for both yeast and non-yeast dough.


  • 240g wheat flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 170g water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Optional: 2g dry yeast (or 6g fresh yeast)
  • 200g Schmand (or Creme Fraiche)
  • Some pepper
  • 1 big onion
  • 100g bacon or tofu


  1. Prepare the dough by combining flour, salt, oil, and water. For a pizza dough, add yeast. Knead the dough until it no longer sticks to your hands; add more flour if needed.
  2. Let the dough rest for about 60 minutes. For yeast dough, refrigerate for at least 20-72 hours or let it rise outside the refrigerator for 3 hours.
  3. Choose between pan or baking sheet preparation. For the baking sheet, roll out the dough thinly with some flour and transfer it to the sheet. For pan preparation, form 2 to 3 balls, roll them out, and press into the pan. Let the dough stand for at least 30 minutes.
  4. For the topping, cut the onion into fine strips and the bacon or tofu into small cubes.
  5. In a bowl, mix schmand (or Creme Fraiche), bacon or tofu cut in cubes, onion strips, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  6. Spread the topping on the dough and bake in the oven at 200°C for about 20 to 25 minutes.
