Ingredients for the dough

  • 300 g flour plus a little extra you'll need for later - I used whole grain spelt flour
  • 10 g yeast or 1/2 package of dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • a little warm water

Ingredients for the topping

  • 1 cup curd
  • sea salt & pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 onion lightly sautéed
  • ham cubes
  • cheese - I used gouda


  • Dissolve the yeast in the warm water
  • Give all the dry ingredients in a bowl and add the liquid yeast
  • Incorporate well
  • Now cover the bowl with a clean dishtowel and put in the oven at 50ºC for about 10 min if you have to be quickly. If you have some time you can prepare the dough in advance. You don't need the oven then just set the dough aside at a warm place (maybe next to the heater or place in the sun) for approx. 2 h
  • In the meantime prepare the topping
  • Give the curd, egg, salt and pepper into a bowl and mix well with a fork
  • Now back to the dough. Add a little flour and knead the dough with the ball of your hand and the put again in the oven covered with the dishtowel for another 10 min (no matter if you used the oven before or any other warm place - just make sure the dough doesn't get more than 50°C
  • Now place the dough on one or two baking trays lined with baking paper. You can roll it as thick or thin as you like. If you roll thicker it will turn out softer, if you roll thinner it will turn out crunchier. We chose crunchy yesterday :-)
  • Now cover your dough with the curd paste and sprinkle the onion, ham cubes and cheese over it.
  • Put it in the oven at approx. 200°C for 15-20 min
