- 7g dried yeast (1 sachet)
- 200g bread flour, plus extra for dusting
- 50g buckwheat flour (⅓ cup)
- Vegetable oil, for greasing
- 150g crème fraîche
- ½ onion, sliced as thinly as possible on a mandolin
- 120g bacon or speck, cubed
- Finely grated nutmeg to taste
- Thyme to serve
Step 1: Dissolve yeast in 180ml of lukewarm water in a bowl and set aside until foamy (10-15 minutes). Add flours and ½ tsp salt, mix to form a soft dough, then knead until smooth and elastic (4-5 minutes). Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, turn to coat, cover bowl with plastic wrap and stand until doubled in size (1-1½ hours).
Step 2: Preheat oven to 250C and heat 2 heavy baking trays in oven. Knock back dough on a lightly floured surface and halve. Roll each piece as thinly as possible to a rough 25cm x 30cm rectangle, then place on a piece of baking paper. Spread each with half the crème fraîche, scatter with onion and bacon. Sprinkle with nutmeg, season to taste, then transfer on baking paper to heated trays and bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, until cooked through and lightly scorched on the edges (10-12 minutes). Scatter with thyme, season to taste and serve.
Tips: Slice the onion as thinly as possible, use smoky bacon and bake until edges are scorched to maximise the flavours for this dish.
