This is fmammekueche, aka tarte flambée. Traditional and much beloved Alsatian dish. Some nincompoops call it the Alsatian pizza... Bread dough, sour cream, fromage blanc (cottage cheese), onions, bacon bits. To which you can add mushrooms (tarte flambée forestière), cheese (gratinée), salmon, and so on and so forth... The one above is with cheese. Can be sweet as well. And here it's how to bake it in a wood oven:
Wanna try it yourself? Just google: Alsatian tarte flambee recipe. It is absolutely DELICIOUS!!!
