Figs & Ricotta Flammkuchen

I was craving something quick and had some black figs and ricotta around. With a flammkuchen base and topped with lemon zest, honey and a pinch of salt.

Figs and ricotta flammkuchen


  • Flammkuchen
    • 100g all purpose flour
    • 60ml water
    • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 100g ricotta cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 40g walnuts
  • 275g black figs


  1. Mix 100g all purpose flour, 60ml water and 1 tablespoon sugar and knead until a dough is formed. Leave to rest for 15 minutes.
  2. Roll the dough as thin as possible (~1mm) in a baking tray.
  3. Preheat the oven at 220ºC (~430ºF).
  4. Mix 100g ricotta cheese, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon lemon zest and spread over the flammkuchen dough.
  5. Add 40g chopped walnuts and 275g black figs in small pieces on top of the ricotta.
    *The figs I had were really sweet and decided to leave them raw, but since the flammkuchen dough bakes really quickly, you can also pre-toast the figs.
  6. Bake in the over for 5-10 minutes until the dough starts to get brown.
  7. Finish the flammkuchen toping it with some lemon zest, honey and a pinch of salt.
