Course Entree


  • 1 lb package bread mix or ready made pizza crust
  • 1 onion sliced thinly into rings
  • 1/2 lb German Sauerkraut drained and rinsed
  • 4 oz German imported Black Forest Schinken thinly sliced
  • 1 large tomato sliced thinly
  • 3 oz Bavarian Emmental cheese coarsely grated
  • dried oregano or marjoram
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • Prepare the bread mix according to package instructions. Roll out on a lightly floured board to a think rectangle large enough to fit a shallow lightly oiled baking tray (10 x 12 inches). Lightly grease the tray or line base with parchment paper. Or use ready made pizza crust for convenience.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Scatter the onion rings and sauerkraut evenly on top of the dough making sure they spread right to the edges.
  • Add toppings and sprinkle with herbs and seasonings.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown and bubbling. The bread base should be perfectly baked. Let the pizza stand for 5 minutes before cutting into squares.
