  • Ingredients

For the dough of 2 Flammkuchen

250 g flour, type 0
140 ml water
1 spoon extra-virgin olive oil
6 g fine salt

For the topping

200 g cooking cream
70 g grated cheese (fontina or similar)
140 g Speck Alto Adige PGI, sliced into matchsticks
1 sliced onion

To roll the dough

Double-milled durum wheat flour



Combine the flour, water, extra-virgin olive oil and salt in a bowl.

Knead to a smooth dough for approx. 7 minutes. Wrap in cling film and leave to rest for 15 minutes at room temperature.

In the meantime, heat the cooking cream in a saucepan. When it begins to come to the boil, remove from heat, add the grated cheese and stir until melted.

Dust the work surface with some double-milled durum wheat flour. Divide the dough in half and roll out to a thin sheet.

Transfer the dough to a baking tray lined with baking paper, spread with half of the cheese fondue and top with the Speck Alto Adige PGI matchsticks and sliced onion.

Cook in a static oven at 250°C for 12 minutes.

Remove from the oven and cook the second tray of Flammkuchen.

Slice the Flammkuchen and serve hot.
