  • Put the flour and salt in a mixing bowl or in the work bowl of a food processor.
  • In a measuring cup, sprinkle the yeast over the warm water and stir in the sugar.
  • Add to the flour all at once and stir or motor until smooth.
  • Be careful not to over-process.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and allow it to rise, undisturbed, for 45 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and rub two large baking sheets with a little vegetable oil.
  • Divide the dough into four parts, and on a well-floured surface, roll each part into an 8-inch round.
  • Put the rounds on the oiled baking sheets and set aside.
  • Combine the fromage blanc or cottage cheese, the crème fraîche and the 1 tablespoon of flour and stir or process until smooth.
  • Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until some of the fat is released, then add the sliced onion and cook 2 or 3 minutes, or until the onion is barely softened.
  • Distribute the cheese evenly between the rounds of dough and spread it up to the edges.
  • Sprinkle the bacon and onions on top.
  • Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  • Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until the pastry is browned.
  • Serve hot.

    I have made this recipe 5 times now. These are the changes I have made: I preheat my oven to 500 and put a baking sheet in the oven. Then, I roll out the dough on parchment and place all the toppings on. Then, I place the parchment onto the hot sheet pan and bake for about 8 minutes. This gives it a crispy outside crust. This was still getting soggy in the middle so, i made another change. Now, I only put the onions and bacon on top. Once it comes out of the oven, I scatter some small spoonfuls of the creme fraiche mixture on top. This makes the entire dough crispy. I usually only use plain creme fraiche because it's hard to find fromage blanc.
