Pissaladiere- a speciality of Provence

Try this French variation for Pissaladiere:

  • Make the same pizza base but spread black olive paste mixed with olive oil over it instead of tomato then add slowly cooked onion so it covers the olive paste.
  • Make a Pissala- a Roman paste similar to Garum or fermented fish and add this first before the onions ( see video)
  • Add salted anchovies as decoration.
  • Sprinkle with thyme leaves and bake as before.
  • You can also vary this recipe by using the onion first spread out over the base and then adding whole olives and anchovies

See a good authentic recipe here although use your favourite dough recipe We recommend baking this either in a tin as shown in the photo or as a ‘pizza’ straight on the hot hearth of a wood-fired oven. Either way it will be delicious!

Serve sliced as a starter with aperitifs or cold Provençal rosé wine. Here is a video to make it a bit easier…..
