Quick Onion Pizza

It is a daily challenge deciding what to have for lunch, and one that Tom in particular finds very trying. It's a difficult meal, because I don't get another chance to eat until finishing work - seven hours of class without a lunch break. Luckily, I was recently inspired by my own onion-stuffed chicken to make a lunchtime pizza in the style of Flammkuchen. A perfect meal for my specific needs: quick, tasty, filling. I would advise using creme fraiche if you have it; if not, my cream concoction worked pretty well.

Quick Onion Pizza
Serves 1

2 rashers bacon
1 tortilla wrap
2 tablespoons onion relish
1/2 cup cream
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 tablespoon butter
(or creme fraiche instead of cream/lime/butter)
1/2 onion
1 teaspoon mixed herbs

Grill two bacon rashers until crispy.

Spread the onion relish over a tortilla wrap.

In a blender, mix cream, lime juice and butter until stiff. Spoon over the onion relish.

Cut the onion into thin crescents and lay gently on the cream mixture.

Sprinkle with herbs, salt and pepper.

Once the bacon is cooked, allow it to cool slightly. Using scissors, snip it over the pizza and move the pizza to the oven. Cook at 180 degrees (360 Fahrenheit) for about ten minutes, checking on it regularly.
