Last weekend I watched a cooking show on a German channel with Tim Mälzer, who is a well-known cook in Germany. He was also one of the first cooks who's recipes I tried and also one of his cookbooks was the first I've bought. That Saturday afternoon he baked an asparagus pizza, not with a usual pizza dough, but one with quark. I had no idea what to prepare today for dinner, when I remembered that recipe. I thought why not give it a try. It was absolutely delicious and it is prepared so quickly! Besides if you forgot to make your pizza dough early enough, it is a great alternative! It is actually kind of a mix between a pizza and an Alsatian tarte flambée. Of course I haven't used asparagus as it is no longer in season, but some courgette, spring onions, bacon and crème fraîche.
80 g quark (20% fat)
3 tablespoons olive oil (i forgot to add)
175 g flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Whisk quark, oil and the egg together. Sift flour, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and knead a dough. Preheat oven to 230°C. Roll out dough and add anything you desire on top and bake for 15-20 minutes.
