Red Cabbage and Potato Valentine's Flammkuchen

Flammkuchen is a homemade personal German style pizza. For this heart shaped Valentine's Day inspired version, In honor of Valentine's Day, I used all red toppings: Red wine drenched red cabbage, red potatoes and caramelized red onions. But you can substitute any vegetable or meat you like.

I added roasted garlic powder and kosher salt to the crust dough for extra flavor.  Good decision.

The dough base is coated with a mixture of schmand and creme fraiche, then topped with grated emmenthaler cheese. Swiss or gruyere cheese would do the trick as well.

Schmand is a thick creamy ingredient commonly used in Germany in both sweet and savory dishes. It's a hard item to find in the USA so I have included an extremely easy recipe for a homemade version in the link below. 

This recipe makes four individual flammkuchen or pizza. the topping are loaded so this is a hearty meal all by itself.
