I wanted to share with you today a sunny recipe! The summer can end outside but doesn’t need to end in your kitchen! I really like recipes from south of France because it makes me feel at home! I hope you will have the same feeling when you will eat this tart!
This is a typical recipe from Nice in the south east of France. The pissaladiere can look like a kind of pizza; but in fact it is made of bread pasta and not pizza pasta. Additionally you do not have any tomatoes in the following recipe. The Pissaladière is a tarte made of bread pasta, onion and anchovies.
- 500 gr. of flour (3.84 cups or 1.1 lb.)
- 20 gr. of fresh baking yeast (0.7 oz.)
- 2 dl. of water (0.8 cup or 6.6 oz.)
- 1 dl. of olive oil (0.4 cup or 3.3 oz.)
- 50 gr. of seeded black olives (0.3 cup or 1.78 oz.)
- 12 anchovies
- 1,5 kg. of onion (3.30 lb.)
- 8 unpeeled garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 2 teaspoons of fresh thyme
- Dissolve the fresh baking yeast in the water.
- Mix in your robot the flour, water (with baking yeast), olive oil and salt. When you got a nice pasta, cover with a towel and leave for 1 hour.
- In the meantime slice the onions and cook the onions with 2 anchovies and the unpeeled garlic cloves for around 45 minutes in a pan covered with olive oil.
- Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F).
- Spread the pasta on a baking tray covered with greaseproof paper.
- Spread the onions.
- Add on top the olives, unpeeled garlic cloves and the rest of the anchovies. Bake for around 30 minutes.
You can eat a pissaladiere as an appetizer or as a main dish with a salad for example and you will enjoy even more this pissaladiere with a glass of rosé from Provence.
I hope this recipe brought a little bit of sun in your kitchen!
