- 120 ml White wine
- 100 ml Olive oil
- 1.5 Cups Flour Follow recipe before you add flour
- 1/2 Cup Pitted black olives
- 1 Tbsp Herbs de Provence See notes for alternatives
- 1/2 Tsp Salt
- 1 Tsp Baking powder
- 3 Cloves Garlic roughly chopped
- 2 Tsp Oil
- 4/5 Large Pink or Red Onions
- 1 Tsp Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/4 Tsp Salt
- Get a large mixing bowl. Add your wine, oil and herbs and mix.
- This next step is important. Add the baking powder and salt to your flour and using a sieve and a wooden spoon, gradually sift about a cup of flour into your liquid mix.
- Continue to sift your flour until you have a sticky dough. You may use up to two cups.
- Grease a baking sheet and roughly roll out your dough onto the sheet.When this is done pop it into the fridge for about 20 minutes.
- While your dough is chilling, you can pop on your oven to get it heated up (200 C).Chop up all of your onions.
- Then heat up about 2 tsp of oil in a pan and add your chopped onions.To caramelise the onions, brown them a little in the pan with a pinch of salt. As the onions begin to brown add in your apple cider vinegar and about a teaspoon of sugar. Continue to cook until onions are browned and sweet.Then put to one side.
- Get your chilled flatbread from the fridge and aerate using a fork.Pop into your oven for ten minutes (don’t add onions at this stage).
- After ten minutes remove from the oven and now cover with the caramelised onions. Put back into the oven for another ten minutes.
- Once this ten minutes is up, remove, add your black olives and garlic and return to the oven for 5 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and your delicious and easy flat onion bread is ready to be enjoyed.
Super easy and delish. A fancy appetiser to be enjoyed with a glass of wine. A great dinner party starter!
Roughly roll out your dough onto a greased baking try and fork it!
After the first bake, lash on your toppings.
