8 ounces basic pizza dough

1/4 cup fromage blanc or quark

1/4 cup creme fraiche

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon salt

Pinch white pepper

Pinch nutmeg

2 ounces white onion, thinly sliced and blanched in boiling water

2 ounces smoked bacon, cut into fine slivers


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. If you have a baking stone, preheat it now.
  2. Using a minimum amount of flour to keep the dough from sticking roll out the pizza dough, getting it as thin as you can. You can make the dough into either a rectangle or a round.
  3. Place the dough on a slightly oiled baking sheet or on a pizza peel if you are using baking stone.
  4. Whisk together the fromage blanc, creme fraiche, egg yolk, and seasonings and spread this mix thinly over the dough leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges. Sprinkle the onions and bacon over the tart and slide directly into the oven.
  5. Bake for approximately 5 minutes or until the dough is fully cooked and golden.
  6. Check the underside of the tart. Slice and serve very hot.
