Legend says that it was the 14th century bakers in the Alsace region of France who created Flammekueche as a means of testing an oven’s temperature for their bread with a thinly stretched piece of dough; if the temperature was right the dough would bake in just a minute leaving the edges crisp and slightly charred. Today it is the region’s specialty dish topped with bacon and onions.
WHAT FLAMMEKUECHE IS NOT ?
Pizza! .. Despite having very similar characteristics, Flammekueche has its own unique personality! Our dough is millimetres thin and contains minimal yeast, guaranteeing a crisp bite & removing that bloated feel. Due to the thinness, we are able to cook it at a very fast speed. Sharing is caring! Pick a few for the table and split them between yourselves so you can enjoy different flavours!
