Pissaladière image

Sweet, caramelized onions, briny anchovies and olives make the up the topping for this traditional Provençal tart. This version calls for a yeasted dough, which makes the tart somewhat like a pizza. But puff pastry, which Julia Child preferred, is also traditional, and quite a bit richer. If you'd rather use that, substitute a 12- to 16-ounce package for the yeast dough, and bake the tart at 375 degrees until the bottom and sides are golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. Pissaladière makes great picnic fare, in addition to being a terrific appetizer or lunch dish. This recipe is part of The New Essentials of French Cooking, a guide to definitive dishes every modern cook should master. Buy the book.

Time 2h30m

Yield 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 12

18 anchovy fillets, or to taste
1/4 cup olive oil
3 pounds/about 1.4 kilograms onions, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, grated on a Microplane or minced
1 teaspoon thyme leaves, chopped
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 cup Niçoise olives, pitted or not, or to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
2/3 cup warm water
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups/250 grams all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons fine sea salt


  • Make the filling: Finely chop 2 of the anchovy fillets. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, thyme and chopped anchovy, then cover pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, stir in salt, and continue cooking for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. The onions should be pale golden and very soft; lower the heat if they start to turn dark brown at the edges or stick to the skillet. Use your judgment on timing: Look to the color of the onions to tell you when they're done. Remove from heat and cool completely before using.
  • Meanwhile, make the dough: In a medium bowl, sprinkle dry yeast over warm water. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes, then add oil. In a large bowl, whisk together flour and salt, then stir in yeast mixture with a wooden spoon until combined. Turn bowl's contents out onto a floured surface and knead until uniform and elastic, 3 to 5 minutes. (Flour your hands if necessary to keep dough from sticking.) Transfer dough to an oiled bowl, flip the dough over, cover bowl with a damp cloth and let rest in a draft-free place for 1 hour.
  • Lightly oil an 11x17-inch rimmed baking sheet. Working on a floured surface, roll dough into an 11x16-inch rectangle, then transfer it to the oiled baking sheet and press the dough to the sides. Cover with a damp cloth and let rest for 30 minutes.
  • Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Spread cooked onions evenly over dough, and top with remaining anchovies and olives. Bake until edges and underside are golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Kosher salt
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves or 3 teaspoon dried thyme
Freshly ground black pepper
8 anchovies, packed in oil
16 olives, pitted (recommended: nicoise)
1 pound fresh pizza dough


  • To make the onion filling:
  • In a large saute pan, cook the onions with salt in 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-low heat until very soft and caramelized, about 30 minutes. Add the minced garlic and thyme and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Season the onions with salt, and pepper, to taste. Cook's Note: Slightly under salt to account for the salt from the anchovies and olives.
  • To assemble:

Yield Makes one 17-by-12-inch tart

Number Of Ingredients 10

Pissaladiere Dough
1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for pan and plastic wrap
4 medium cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 medium onions, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons coarse salt
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 pounds ripe plum tomatoes
24 anchovies
1/4 cup Nicoise olives, pitted and thinly sliced lengthwise


  • Lightly oil a 17-by-12-inch rimmed baking sheet, and set aside. Roll out dough to a 17-by-12-inch rectangle, and fit into sheet, folding up the edges slightly to form a small lip. Prick dough all over with a fork. Cover with oiled plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place until slightly puffed, about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with a rack in the center. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, onions, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Add thyme and parsley; set aside to cool.
  • Cut tomatoes in half lengthwise, and scoop out seeds with a melon baller or small spoon. Slice tomato halves lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick strips; distribute evenly over dough. Arrange onions on top, then add anchovies in a decorative pattern to form X-shapes. Dot with olives. Bake 12 minutes. Rotate sheet, and continue baking until crust is golden, about 15 minutes more. Remove from oven; using a large spatula, transfer to a cutting board. Slice into pieces, and serve warm or at room temperature. Although Pissaladiere is best eaten the day it is baked, it can be reheated the next day; place in an oven heated to 200 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes until heated through.

2 bay leaves
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)
1 tablespoon dry yeast (from 2 envelopes)
1 teaspoon sugar
2 3/4 cups (or more) all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Yellow ornmeal
20 drained anchovy fillets
20 oil-cured black olives, pitted

This is a gorgeous oniony tart made like a pizza - it makes a great starter or lunch, hot or cold.

Provided by Mary Cadogan

Categories     Buffet, Dinner, Lunch, Main course, Starter, Supper

Time 2h15m

Number Of Ingredients 11

200g strong white bread flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp easy blend dried yeast
150ml warm water
1 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp olive oil , plus extra for drizzling
1kg onion , thinly sliced
a few sprigs of thyme
2 tomatoes , skinned and chopped
2 x 80g cans anchovy fillets, drained, fat ones halved lengthways
a handful of black olives


  • Tip the flour, salt and yeast into a bowl. Pour in the water, spoon in the oil and mix to a soft dough. Turn out on to a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes until the dough is smooth and no longer sticky.
  • Return the dough to the bowl, cover with cling film or a damp tea towel and leave it to rise for 45 minutes to 1¼ hours or until the dough springs back when pressed. Don't worry too much is it takes more or less time - it's not critical for this relaxed recipe.
  • While the dough is rising, heat the oil in a large, deep frying pan or sauté pan, throw in the onions and fry gently for about 10 minutes until softened but not browned, stirring from time to time.
  • Sprinkle in the thyme and some salt and pepper, then tip in the tomatoes and stir well. Cover and cook gently for 45 minutes until the onions are meltingly soft, stirring occasionally and removing the lid for the last 10 minutes to reduce any liquid. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly.
  • Preheat the oven to 220C/gas 7/fan 200C. Lightly oil a shallow 23x33cm baking tin or tray. Knead the dough again briefly, then roll it out and press it into the tin. Don't leave it to rise again.
  • Spread the onion mixture over the dough, then arrange the anchovies on top, making a criss-cross pattern. Stud each window between the anchovies with an olive, then bake for 25-30 minutes until golden. Serve warm, cold or reheated, cut into squares.

Pissaladière image

The most exciting pissaladière I ever had was served it the open-air market in the heart of old Nice. It was baked in a wood-burning oven a few blocks away, sent to the market by bicycle, and eaten standing up or at picnic tables shaded by huge awnings. The wedges were gently sweet and intensely salty; the crust, just a half inch thick, was perfumed with the local olive oil and was perfectly browned and crisp. It was so simple-mostly just sweet onions on a wonderful crust. You can make a wonderful pissaladière at home: just be sure to cook the onions very, very slowly.

Yield makes 4 or more servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

1/2 recipe Pizza Dough (page 572)
Flour as needed
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more as needed
1 1/2 pounds onions, about 3 large or 4 or 5 medium, thinly sliced
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried
6 to 10 anchovies, optional
About 12 Niçoise or other good-quality black olives, pitted and cut in half, optional
6 to 8 thin slices tomato, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 450°F, with a pizza stone in place if you have one. Knead the dough lightly and place it on a lightly floured surface; sprinkle it with a little more flour and cover it with plastic wrap or a towel. Let it rest while the oven heats and you cook the onions.
  • Put the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and add the onions and some salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onions give up their liquid and become quite soft, at least 15 minutes; do not allow them to brown. When they are cooked, turn off the heat and stir in the thyme.
  • Pat or roll out the dough as thinly as possible, to a diameter of about 12 inches, using more flour or oil as necessary. The process will be easier if you let the dough rest between rollings. If you have a pizza stone in your oven, place the dough on a floured peel or long-handled board; if not, lay the dough on a baking sheet brushed lightly with olive oil. Let the dough rest for 15 to 30 minutes, or until it begins to puff ever so slightly.
  • Spread the dough with onions and then decorate, if you like, with anchovies, olives, and tomato. Bake until nicely crisp, 15 minutes or more; if the tart is browning unevenly, rotate it back to front about halfway through the cooking time. Serve hot or at room temperature.
  • Omit the tomatoes and olives. In step 2, stir the anchovies into the cooked onions and cook for 5 minutes. Stir a 6-ounce can of tomato paste into the onions and cook for a few more minutes over low heat. Season to taste. Drizzle the rolled-out dough with 2 tablespoons olive oil and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the bottom begins to turn pale golden. Spread the partially baked dough with 1 cup plain bread crumbs, preferably fresh, then spread with the onion mixture. Return to the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes more, until the bottom is dark golden but not burned and the top is a richly colored caramel. Remove and allow to cool for a few minutes before cutting; best served hot or warm.


Pissaladiere (Onion, Olive, and Anchovy Pizza) image

Pissaladière is a pizza-like dish made in Southern France, around the Nice, Marseilles, Toulon and the Var District, and in the Italian region of Liguria, especially in the Province of Imperia. It can be considered a type of white pizza, as no tomatoes are used. The dough is usually a bread dough thicker than that of the classic Italian pizza traditional topping consists of caramelized (almost pureed) onions, olives, garlic and anchovies. No cheese is used in France, however, in the nearby Italian town of San Remo, mozzarella is added.

Pissaladiere (Provencal Onion Tart) image

The Provencal pissaladiere is an oven-baked (pizza-like) focaccia or torta topped with caramelized onions, black Nicoise olives, and anchovies. A street food of Nice, it is often sold by street vendors or at local markets. It can also be served as an appetizer. It is believed to have been introduced to the area by Roman cooks during the time of the Avignon Papacy. The dough in this recipe rises for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. If a longer or overnight rise is more convenient, make the dough with 1/2 teaspoon of instant yeast and let it rise in the refrigerator for 16 to 24 hours. The caramelized onions can also be made a day ahead and refrigerated. Recipe requires use of a baking stone.

Time 1h15m

Yield 2 tarts

Number Of Ingredients 19

2 cups bread flour, plus extra for dusting work surface
1 teaspoon instant yeast
1 teaspoon table salt
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus additional oil for brushing dough and greasing hands
1 cup water, warm (about 110F)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 lbs yellow onions, sliced 1/4 inch thick
4 garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1 teaspoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup nicoise olive, pitted, chopped coarse
8 anchovy fillets, rinsed, patted dry, chopped coarse
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, minced
1 tablespoon marjoram leaves, minced (optional)
1 teaspoon fennel seed (optional)
1 tablespoon fresh parsley leaves, minced (optional)


  • In workbowl of food processor fitted with plastic dough blade (can use metal blade if necessary), pulse flour, yeast, and salt to combine, about five 1 second pulses. With machine running, slowly add oil, then water, through feed tube; continue to process until dough forms ball, about 15 seconds.
  • Generously dust work surface with flour. Using floured hands, transfer dough to work surface and knead lightly, shaping dough into ball.
  • Lightly oil 1 quart measuring cup or small bowl, place dough in measuring cup, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and set aside in draft-free spot until doubled in volume, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • While dough is rising, heat oil in 12 inch nonstick skillet over high heat until shimmering but not smoking. Stir in onions, garlic, salt, and brown sugar and cook, stirring frequently, until moisture released by onions has evaporated and onions begin to brown, about 10 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently. After 15 minutes, remove garlic cloves, mince them and then return them to the pan, along with the balsamic vinegar. Stir and continue cooking for 5 more minutes, until onions have softened and are medium to golden brown. Off heat, stir in water; transfer to bowl and set aside.
  • When dough has doubled, adjust oven rack to lowest position, set baking stone on rack, and heat oven to 500°F.
  • Remove dough from measuring cup and divide into 2 equal pieces using dough scraper. Working with one piece at a time, form each piece into rough ball by gently pulling edges of dough together and pinching to seal. With floured hands, turn dough ball seam-side down. Cupping dough with both hands, gently push dough in circular motion to form taut ball. Repeat with second piece.
  • Brush each lightly with oil, cover with plastic wrap, and let rest 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cut two 20 inch lengths parchment paper and set aside.
  • Coat fingers and palms of hands generously with oil. Using dough scraper, loosen 1 piece of dough from work surface. With well-oiled hands, hold dough aloft and gently stretch to 12-inch length (like a very large breadstick). Place on parchment sheet and gently dimple surface of dough with fingertips. Using oiled palms, push and flatten dough into 14x8 inch oval.
  • Brush dough with oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Leaving 1/2 inch border around edge, sprinkle 1/4 cup olives, 1 tablespoon chopped anchovies, and 1 teaspoon thyme evenly over dough, then evenly scatter with half of onions. Sprinkle with fennel seeds and marjoram, if using.
  • Slip parchment with tart onto pizza peel (or inverted rimless baking sheet), then slide onto hot baking stone. Bake until deep golden brown, 13 to 15 minutes. While first tart bakes, shape and top second tart.
  • Remove tart from oven with peel or pull parchment onto baking sheet; transfer tart to cutting board and slide parchment out from under tart. Cool 5 minutes; sprinkle with 1 1/2 teaspoons parsley, if using. Cut tart in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise to form 8 pieces; serve immediately. While first tart cools, bake second tart.
