Alsatian Pizza

I was making a slew of different pizzas for the family tonight.  And while most of them were made before, I did have one new one, this Alsatian Pizza.  I liked it much more than I thought I would.  I didn't make it exactly like the original recipe.  If you are interested in seeing that, follow the link, but I made it the way I typed it out here. 

Alsatian Pizza
1 Lb pizza dough
1 Tbl plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 Cup fromage blanc or fresh ricotta
1 Tbl all-purpose flour
1/2 Cup crème fraîche or sour cream
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 Lb thickly sliced smoky bacon cut crosswise into 1/4-inch strips
1 medium onion thinly sliced

1. Put a pizza stone in the oven and preheat it to 500
2. Roll out dough in to a large thin circle
3. In a food processor, pulse the fromage blanc until smooth. Add the
flour, crme frache and the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season
with salt and pepper and process until smooth.~
4. In a medium skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat until the fat
is rendered, about 4 minutes. Add the onion and cook just until softened,
  about 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool.
5. Remove the stone from the oven, put the dough on the hot stone.  Spread the fromage blanc mixture over the  rounds to within 1/4 inch of the edge. Sprinkle with the bacon and onion.
6. Bake at 500 for 6-7 minutes or until dough is browned a bit and the cheese is melted and bubbly


  1. Sounds like a yummy pizza! Great recipe :)

  2. Love this idea! In fact, I was thinking about doing pizza on the grill for my family tonight. Wanted one traditional pepperoni for the kids, and something fancier for Mr. Allie & I... this just fits the bill! Thanks for sharing!
