French tart Pissaladiere with sardines

Pissaladiere is a another classic tart that comes from the South of France. It exactly comes from Nice. I will not tell you the original recipe, I am not from there, but I really wanted to share this one because it is simple, easy and a great option for your picnic and apero during the  summer.

Ingredients for 4/6 persons:
- 1 pizza dough
- 400 gr. of yellow onions
- 40 gr. of olive oil
- 1 garlic clove
- salt and pepper
- 1 can of sardines or anchovies (or both!)
- black olives
- fresh thyme or oregano

Turn on the oven to 200C.

1/ Make or buy a pizza dough. In this case, I am sorry, but I totally skip this part... but I am sure you know where to find a pizza dough, either at the supermarket or in your kitchen aid! ;-)

2/ Peel and slice thinly the onions.In a large stir-fry pan, get together the onions and 2 tbsp. of olive oil at medium heat and cook the onions for 15 minutes, till you get a compote. Stay on top and stir constantly to make sure you get a compote and not fried onions! This is the secret know-how of this recipe! Add salt and pepper. Onions are sweet, so make sure you adjust well the salt.

3/ In a large oven tray, lay down some parchment paper and cover it with the pizza dough giving a rectangular shape to the dough. Spread the onion compote evenly. Add some black olives and the fish fillets.
The original recipe is made with anchovies preserved in salt. But I ran out of them, and found tiny sardines to replace them. The result was really yummy! So, choose the fish you prefer!

4/ Put the pissaladiere in the oven for 20 minutes till it gets golden and the dough is crunchy.

5/ When ready, sprinkle some fresh thyme and/or oregano on top. You can serve it warm, lukewarm or cold! This is quite versatile and allows you to have it done in advance or bring it for a picnic.

I slice it in squares and store it in a air-tight box in the fridge. Feel free to warm them up again in the oven or even on the barbecue before service if you prefer it warm.

Enjoy and feel the summer still here in your plate!
