Ingredients for 2 people

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 50 ml olive or canola oil 
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
  • water as needed 
  • Pork lard or lardons (If using lard, buy one with a good mix of meat and fat and dice finely) 
  • ½ onion
  • crème fraîche or cottage cheese


  1. Mix all ingredients except water in a silicone bag with a roll-top closure or a reusable plastic-free waterproof bag so that you can knead the dough well without getting sticky hands. 
  2. Mix roughly.
  3. Add enough water to make a stiff dough, close the bag and knead well. 
  4. Dust a wooden cutting board with additional flour, break off a tennis ball-sized lump of dough, flatten it well with your hands or a rolling pin, and spread it out into a rough rectangle, folding in the edges to keep the crème fraîche from running onto the pan. 
  5. Toast in a dry pan for 2-3 minutes per side. Set aside.
  6. Dry fry the onions and lard/lardons.
  7. Spread the crème fraîche on the toasted dough, top with onions and bacon. Dig in. 
  8. Make more as desired.
