Originating from the Alsace region of France which borders Germany to the east and Switzerland to the south, Flammekueche in Germany or Tarte Flambée if you're French is an iconic Alsatian delicacy adored by locals for many generations. Traditionally served on wooden boards spread with crème fraîche, speck (bacon) and onion, the introduction of Flammekueche into the Australian market by John and Karin Greenslade has seen the product passionately embraced by locals utilising the bases not only for the Alsatian favourite, however also a means for crafting their desired homemade pizzas.
Cooking to a crisp finish in a matter of just minutes, the bases themselves being so thin result in a significantly lighter variation of your typical homemade pizza. While we all know and many of us love the quintessential homemade pizza, we also know it's not everyone's cup of tea as it often ends up leaving you feeling full and heavy immediately afterwards.
With the freedom to utilise your favourite pizza ingredients or go for something a little more experimental, the necessary mindset and key to a successful Flammekueche is to remember that less is more. With this in mind, why not give it a go and see for yourself! Don't just take our word for it though, of course we're going to be biased. See what others think below.
