I had onion tart on our last trip to Berlin and I loved it! It was a light dough with custard on top. Very savory! I tried this recipe and it was more like bread with onion topping? What did I do wrong.

You actually did nothing wrong. The above recipe is for the onion tart that is famous in certain parts of Germany. What I think you're actually referring to is Flammkuchen. The "custard" on top is usually a type of crème fraîche, but Greek yogurt works well.

Give this recipe a try. I think you'll like it.

This was my Dad's favorite.....growing up, we had a neighborhood bakery(a German one) that made this occasionally, Dad could eat most of it by himself...Our family is mostly German....
