Ingredients
  

Ingredients for the base

  • 400 g Flour no need to sieve
  • 25 g fresh yeast from the bakery
  • 25 cl lukewarm water
  • 25 Tbsp olive oil

Ingredients for the topping

  • 1 kg Onions finely sliced
  • 70-100 g anchovies fillets
  • a few black olives preferably pizza olives
  • Provence herbs

Instructions
 

  • Mix the flour, yeast and warm water in a large bowl and knead it into a stiff dough.
  • Pour 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and mix into the dough. NB: this may seem unusual for people who make normal pizza dough, but it’s a necessary step!
  • Form the dough into a ball and sprinkle lightly with flour. Cover the bowl with a dishcloth and let it rise for an hour.
  • Peel and slice the onions finely.
  • Take a deep frying pan that has a lid and add a splash of olive oil.
  • Gently sweat off the onions without browning them. Stir them periodically, but keep them covered to create an unctuous soft mixture, adding a bit of water or more oil as needed. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • When the onions are cooked, let them cool down completely.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 deg C.
  • Place baking paper on the baking sheet, or add some flour.
  • When the dough has risen, spread it out evenly to take the shape of the baking sheet. Use a rolling pin, or a wine bottle, to roll it into the corners.
  • Let the dough rest for a few minutes so it rises to about 1cm.
  • Spread the cooled onions evenly over the surface of the dough.
  • Add the sliced anchovies and olives.
  • Sprinkle Provence herbs over the top, or add fresh sprigs of thyme and finely cut rosemary.
  • Bake the pizza in the oven for 30 min.
