La Pissaladière

posted in Main Dishes |

I’ve been wanting to try this “onion pizza” since the day I saw it on The Cooking Ninja’s blog. No sauce, no cheese, just a ton of caramelized onions, some herbs, tomatoes, and anchovies. Simple and amazingly tasty. We love onions, so I knew this would be a hit.

Lisa says:

Holy mackerel it smells good in here.

Chris says:

Actually those are anchovies, and it should smell good — I caramelized four whole onions for this pizza!

Lisa says:

Yum! This is delicious — even with the anchovies!

Chris says:

I thought you would like them; that’s some salty goodness. 😉

Thad and Abbie say:

Why do your clothes smell like onions?

La Pissaladière
(courtesy The Cooking Ninja)
1 pizza dough
4 large onions, sliced (I used 3 yellow, one red)
4 tomatoes, thickly sliced
1 can of anchovies
Herbs de Provence

Preheat the oven to 410F, or use the instructions on your pizza dough. Heat some oil in a pan over medium-high heat and sauté the onions until they start to turn golden brown; sprinkle with salt. On a floured board, roll out your dough into a 12-14″ circle, then move to a pizza pan or baking sheet. Lay the onions onto the dough, then layer with tomatoes, some herbs, and finally, the anchovies. Cook for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

    Well that’s a different take on this classic dish. I can’t recall seeing other Pissaladière recipes with thick slabs of tomato like yours, but hey, what ever floats your boat. I’d definitely try it though as tomatoes are one of my favorites too.
