1/4 thinly sliced onion

2 slices torn Proscuitto (Optional)

I need cream sauce. I need it to live.

I had to get creative with no dairy. No butter. No cheese. No milk.

Fortunately thanks to some heavy spicing I have a spicy, well seasoned, white sauce. This is definitely going on pasta in the future!

This pizza is inspired by Flammkuchen- a specialty pizza that’s popular in Southern Germany/Northern France. Earlier in history, the border of Germany was further North. The region we lived in used to be French and the influence in food is still very heavily felt.

Flammkuchen is a thin crusted pizza, topped with a sour cream/cream cheese style cheese topped with Lardon and onion. It’s cooked in a brick oven so the crust gets those beautiful crusty raised bubbles. Oh how I missed it! All I need now is to find Lardon and I’ll be in heaven.
