The Hungarian Focaccia Pizza aka Kenyérlángos is a traditional, old Hungarian meal, originally made in a furnace. As the English name, I gave it hints, it’s somewhere between the Focaccia and the Pizza.
When I started writing this post I realized I can’t really translate the word Kenyérlángos. The word Kenyérlángos is created from two words: kenyér – bread and lángos – fried dough.
Obviously I couldn’t translate it as bread-fried-dough…it sounds horrible and what’s more, it isn’t even fried. So, I tried to think of what it’s most similar to, that’s how I ended up with the Focaccia Pizza.
The dough is most similar to a Focaccia, but the topping is most similar to a Pizza.
When you decided to give it a try, you can change the toppings (like I did a bit), but the traditional Hungarian Focaccia Pizza – Kenyérlángos is topped with sour cream, cream cheese, red onion, and bacon. I added olives and mushrooms too, just because my family loves them, but you can personalize it to your preferences.

Spread the mixed cream on the dough, then add the toppings.
