Alzatian Pizza

I found this wonderful recipe from Bake my day blog. This is a perfect Pizza for me.

2 tsp yeast
1.1/2 tsp salt
375 grams all purpose flour
375 grams breadflour
500 ml water
1 tsp sugar

Don't leave out the sugar, I think it enhances the flavours. This is the ideal dough to knead in your stand mixer or bread machine; (I discovered that loading my bowl with liquid first works best), just add it all to the bowl and mix for 10 minutes on low speed. It will come together beautifully, soft and silky, slightly tacky to the touch. It won't clear the bowl completely, there will be a tiny sticky part on the bottom of your bowl but don't mind that. Scrape it all out, a few quick turns on an ungreased, unfloured surface and ready to rise in a well-oiled bowl for about 45 minutes.
In the meantime get your filling ready

100 gr. fresh cheese (100 gr yoghurt)
100 ml. creme fraiche (100 gr single cream)
2 tsp flour (4 tsp flour to make up for the thinner cream and yoghurt)
1/2 ts salt
1 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs chives
small handfull of cheese
Mix well in a small bowl, set aside.
2 onions, peeled and sliced into thin rings

Proceed to divide and roll the dough to fit three (or four depending on size) pizza molds. Don't roll too thinly though. Smear the filling onto the dough and sprinkle with onin rings and bacon.
Another quick rise, let's say: 15 to 30 minutes and bake in a preheated oven 400F (200C) for 15-20 minutes. . When you'd like this pizza to be vegetarian, you can used used nice greens like leek, broccoli or spinach and add a dash of pepper.
