Flammkuchen Recipe

  • Author: Cook Homey
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 2 Flammkuchens 1x


Is Flammkuchen better than pizza? I don’t know. Is it delicious? Absolutely! Lovely onions, leeks, bacon, and creme fraiche. The Flammkuchen recipe is simple, fast, and mouth-watering.


Units Scale

Dough (for 2 Flammkuchens):

  • 310 g of all-purpose flour
  • 135 ml of water (lukewarm)
  • 15 ml oil (or melted butter)
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • 250 g creme fraiche
  • 1 large onion
  • 4 tbsp leek (green part)
  • 260 g bacon (or cured ham)
  • A pinch of salt and pepper
  • A handful of fresh chives


  1. Prepare the dough first. In a bowl, mix flour, salt, water, and oil. Put together, start kneading for about 2 minutes and shape into a nice ball. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour. Then let it rest for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 450 ° F (230 ° C). Furthermore, prepare all the necessary ingredients. Cut the onion and leek into slices and bacon into smaller cubes.
  3. Divide the rested dough into two pieces (or more, when making more portions). On the lightly floured surface, roll out each piece into a nice circle. The dough for Flammkuchen should be relatively thin.
  4. Transfer the rolled dough to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread creme fraiche all over the surface. Add and distribute chopped onions, leeks, and bacon evenly.
  5. Put in a preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. If the edges are nicely golden-brown and crispy, the Flammkuchen is ready.
  6. After removing it from the oven, let it rest for a minute and garnish with finely chopped chives.


While rolling out one piece of the dough, cover the other pieces with plastic wrap to prevent them from drying out.

Be generous with creme fraiche.
