Provencale Pissaladiere


  • Mix together the lukewarm water, sugar, dry yeast and 1 cup flour in a large bowl. Set aside for about 5-6 mins until it begins to bubble. (This is called proving and serves to ensure that the yeast is active.)
  • Then add 1 tspn salt to the dough with up to 1½ cups flour, gradually. Using a wooden spoon and then your hands, knead the dough until smooth and elastic.
  • Transfer the dough to a clean bowl, sprayed with a little oil. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside for about 1 hour until doubled in size. Then punch it down and let it rise again for about 2 hours until doubled. (This can be down overnight in a large sealed container in the fridge.)
  • Preheat oven to 210°-220°C.
  • To make the topping, heat the oil in a large pan and gently saute the onions until tender. Add the tomatoes, thyme and seasonings. Mix well and gently cook for 15 mins.
  • When ready, place the dough on a lightly oiled baking tray and press out evenly. Then spread the tomato mixture on top of the base.
  • Combine the olives, chargrilled capsicum and eggplant, artichokes and anchovies to taste. Then scatter on top of the tomato sauce. Cook in the oven for about 20-30 mins until risen and golden.
  • Cut into squares or triangles and enjoy!
