Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 1 large pizza
- 2 - 3 tablespoons crème fraîche
- 2 - 3 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 white, yellow or red onion, sliced thin or chopped
- 6 slices thick bacon, cut into pieces
Here's how to make it:
- Combine the flour, oil, salt and water in a bowl. Use your hands to mix together until it forms a dough. Knead for a few minutes until smooth.
- Cover a baking sheet or pizza pan with parchment paper. Put the dough on the baking sheet and roll out to create a thin crust.
- Combine the crème fraîche and sour cream in a bowl. Spread evenly on the dough. Add the onions and bacon. Season with salt and pepper (more pepper than salt because of the bacon).
- Bake in a preheated 475-degree F oven for about 15 minutes, or until golden. Watch closely because it could burn at this high of a temperature very quickly. Remove from oven, cut into pieces and serve. Garnish with chopped green onions, if desired.
