For my homemade version, I just bought some pre-baked Flammkuchen crusts from the grocery store, and topped them with some crème fraîche I got in France, some German shredded white cheese (I forgot what kind I used- oops!), and some cooked bacon. I omitted the usual onions that are supposed to top this dish, and used fresh chives on top after it came out of the oven. (I thought it would be more kid-friendly without the onions). It was delicious and flavorful.
We had this last night for dinner with Insalata Caprese (using heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil from a plant I just bought), and a fruit salad. We had bought some local berries earlier (strawberries, blueberries and raspberries) and we mixed them with some delicous, creamy, German vanilla-bean yogurt. Everything was very good!
Tarte Flambée or Flammkuchen
2 pre-made Flammkuchen crusts (or roll out pizza dough as thin as possible)
1 cup (or a little more) crème fraîche
2 cups shredded white, mild cheese
8 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
4 tablespoons fresh snipped chives
Preheat oven as hot as it will go. Place crusts on pizza pan or stone. Spread the crusts with crème fraîche, and top with shredded cheese. Then sprinkle bacon on top, and cook until cheese is starting to brown and bubble; 5-10 minutes (depending on the heat of your oven). Remove from oven, and top with fresh chives. Serve immediately.
