How to make traditional tarte flambée?
Prepare the dough: Knead the flour, oil, water and salt into a uniform dough, either by hand or in a food processor with a dough hook. (Knead the dough until it is not sticky. If it is sticky, add a little more flour.) Cover the bowl with the dough with a cloth and set aside while you prepare the filling.
Peel the onion and slice it into thin semicircles.
Using your fingers, split the onion, add it to the bowl and mix it with the bacon and cream.
Preheat the oven to 250°C, top and bottom heat.
Transfer the dough to a sheet of baking paper and roll out very thinly to the size of a baking sheet (about 30x 40 cm). Slide the paper with the dough onto the baking sheet.
Spread the onion and bacon mixture on the dough. Immediately place in the oven so that the dough does not soak.
Bake for about 20 minutes, until the cake is crispy.
