    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 200g bacon, diced
    • 1 onion
    • 150ml creme fraiche
    • 2 tablespoons milk

    1. Preheat the oven to 210 C / Gas 6-7.
    2. Fry the bacon in a pan over high heat without fat for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the pan and set to one aside.
    3. Cut the onions into thin slices and fry them in the same pan until translucent, about 5 minutes.
    4. Mix the creme fraiche, milk, egg yolk, nutmeg and a little pepper in a bowl. Roll out the pizza dough as thinly as possible on a floured work surface and place on a baking tray. It doesn't matter what shape the dough is.
    5. Brush with the cream and spread the bacon and onion on top. Sprinkle with a little Gruyere if desired. Bake in the preheated oven until the cream and batter are lightly browned around the edges, 10 to 15 minutes.
