Denny Mushroom Flammkuchen

Serves: 6 - 8Prep time: 15 minutes plus 1 hour restingCook time: 25 minutes


250g white bread flour
1 tsp salt
150ml water
50ml neutral oil

2 Tbsp butter
2 large onions, sliced thinly
160g créme fraîche

1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp neutral oil
1 punnet any Denny Mushrooms
Handful fresh thyme sprigs
Salt and pepper, to taste

To serve:
Micro herbs for garnish


  • Begin with the dough. Mix the flour and salt together in a large bowl. Combine the water and oil and then mix into the flour. Stir until the dough comes together.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic. Place in a lightly oiled bowl and leave to rest for an hour.
  • Preheat oven to 250°C fan on. Place rack on lower third. Place two large baking trays in the oven to preheat. (If your oven can only accommodate one tray at a time then just cook the 2 flammkuchens one after each other)
  • Melt butter in a large frying pan and cook the onions with a good pinch of salt.
  • Cook until sweet, tender and very lightly golden but not browned.
  • Turn the onions out into a bowl and mix with the crème fraîche. Set aside.
  • Slice and prepare the Denny Mushrooms.
  • Heat the butter and oil on high heat in the same frying pan used for the onions.
  • Add the mushrooms and cook until golden brown.
  • Remove from the heat and season well with salt and pepper.
  • Divide the dough into two.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out as thin as possible into a rectangle.
  • Place the two rectangles onto pieces of baking paper.
  • Spread the onion mix over each base. Leaving a little border like a pizza.
  • Top with exotic mushrooms and a few sprigs of thyme.
  • Carefully remove the hot tray (or trays) from the oven.
  • Transfer the flammkuchens onto the hot trays.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and crisp.
  • Scatter with micro herbs, slice into squares and serve.
