What’s Cookin’ – Alsatian Pizza

One of my favorite cooking websites is Smitten Kitchen.  Awhile back, a recipe was posted for Pizza with bacon, onions and cream (or Alsatian Pizza).

You can go to the website and print the recipe off from there, but I enjoyed this so much that I thought I would share it.  It is basically an appetizer type pizza.  In fact, you take one pizza dough and divide it into four small pizzas.

You need pizza dough, ready made or your own.  Or you can use my recipe.

Simple ingredients.  The onion is carmelized and the bacon is cooked until crispy.  I blended the ricotta, crème fraîche, flour, salt, and pepper in a food processor.

The recipe calls for fromage blanc or ricotta.  I used ricotta.  The recipe calls for crème fraîche or sour cream.  I used crème fraîche.  The recipe suggests blending the ricotta and crème fraîche in a food processor if you want it to be smooth, and I did this.

It doesn’t look like enough onions and bacon, but trust me, there is enough to flavor these little pizzas perfectly.  More would be too much.

Preheat the oven to 450°F.  Oil the pan.  Divide the dough into four equal portions and roll out into 8″ circles.  Spread the cream mixture over the dough circles.  Sprinkle the onion and bacon over the cheese mixture.

You can see that I used parchment paper rather than oiling my sheet pan.  You can also see that my circles are a little rustic (not perfectly round).

Bake for 12 minutes or so until the crust is golden brown.  Cut into wedges and serve.
