Pissaladiere (Onion, Olive, and Anchovy Pizza)
The Southern French dish known as “pissaladi” is made with a thick dough and a topping of caramelized onions, olives, and anchovies.
In a food processor bowl, combine salt and flour.
Add 2 tablespoons of oil and butter.
When the mixture resembles coarse meal, pulse it.
Add one tablespoon of water at a time, pulsing until moist clumps form.
Form a ball of dough and flatten it into a disk.
For at least two hours, wrap in plastic and chill.
In a heavy, large skillet over medium-low heat, warm 3 tablespoons of oil.
Stir in the onions, garlic, bay leaf, and thyme.
Cook covered for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are extremely tender.
After 10 minutes, remove the cover and continue to sauté the onions until the majority of the liquid has evaporated.
Add capers and stir.
Mixture should be salt and pepper-seasoned.
Remove bay leaf after complete cooling.
