Time for part two of the bites we served at our house warming party! This time I share with you these extremely simple thin pizzas (inspired by flammkuchen) with red onion, crème fraiche and dried ham. So little ingredients, such a nice and luxurious flavour!

If we don’t include our birthdays for our family members, this was officially the first “party” we hosted together. A small party, but still. It felt a bit like a milestone, which was probably why I spent hours and hours trying to decide what to serve…. Only to change the plans last minute 😉
However, I’m quite happy I decided to swap one of my other ideas out for this pizza recipe. I only made a small batch but they were gone in no time! That must’ve been one of the things I enjoyed most about hosting this party: seeing people enjoy my food. They all claimed to be so full, yet continued eating… Success!
To conclude on the party: it was a big step for me. I can be so nervous for no reason, and that day I learned that I can be a bit more confident. At least when it comes to party planning and cooking 😉 So I’ve grown in confidence a bit!
I used a store-bought dough because I simply wasn’t confident enough in my pizza dough making skills (is that a skill? I would put it on my CV for sure). However, feel free to use homemade if you feel up to it! Whatever dough you use, just make sure to roll it out really thin.
I’ll be back soon with more fun recipes, let me know if you enjoy the party/bite sized recipes so I’ll know that I need to add more. Oh, and please pin the image down below if you liked this recipe 😀
- Pizza dough (defrosted), 225g
- Crème fraiche, 100g
- Dried or smoked ham, 50g
- Red onion, 1 half
- Salt and pepper
- Italian herbs (optional but recommended)
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
- Roll the dough out until it's really thin, about 3mm. Cut into cubes of 6 by 6 cm.
- Slice the onion and cut the ham in cubes.
- Spread a nice layer of crème fraiche over the dough and top with some onion and ham.
- Sprinkle some salt and herbs over the top. Place this on a piece of baking parchment and in the oven for about 18 minutes.
- If you have a drier dough you can brush some olive oil on the baking parchment before placing the pizzas on top.
