Pissaladière originated in Nice, in the South of France. It is similar to an onion tart only made with a bread like dough. The traditional toppings are onions, olives and anchovies. Ou la la!
For the dough:
- Combine the yeast with 250 g lukewarm water in a lager bowl.
- Let the mixture rest for 10-30 minutes, until bubbles form on the top. The time it will need to rest also depends on the room temperature.
- Add the flour, 50 g of the olive oil, pinch of sugar and salt.
- Stir with a fork. Transfer mixture to a lightly floured working surface. Start to knead by hand for about 10 minutes, until you create a soft and elastic dough.
- Place dough in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest and rise until it doubles in size.
- Prepare the onions while you are waiting.
- Pour the remaining olive oil into a large pan over low heat. Add the onions, bay leaves, aromatics, chilli flakes, salt and pepper.
- Cover the pan with a lid so that the liquid doesn’t evaporate all at once. Cook the onions for about 1 hour until they slightly caramelize, golden and soften.
- Remove lid and continue to cook for another 20-30 minutes, until all of the liquid has evaporated and the onions turn a lovely golden.
- Remove the sprigs of aromatics and the bay leaves and set them aside.
- Preheat the oven to 200* C (392* F) Fan.
- Roll out the dough to a 35x45 cm sheet, on a floured working surface.
- Line a baking pan large enough to hold the dough with parchment paper. Transfer dough onto baking pan.
- Spread the onion mixture evenly over the dough.
- Add the anchovies over the mixture, arranging them to create diamond shapes over the dough.
- Place half an olive in the middle of each diamond.
- Lightly cover the baking pan with plastic wrap and let it rest and rise again for 1 hour.
- Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown.
- When ready, remove from oven. Set pissaladière aside to cool. Cut into pieces and serve.
