Avocado Pissaladière

  • TOTAL TIME: 40 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 4 to 6
  • FAST

This pizza-like tart, pissaladière, is a specialty of Nice, France. The traditional toppings include caramelized onions, anchovies and olives but here, creamy slices of avocado are added as well. Using store-bought pizza dough makes quick work of the crust.

  1. All-purpose flour, for dusting
  2. 1 pound pizza dough, thawed if frozen
  3. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 2 medium sweet onions, such as Vidalia or Walla Walla, thinly sliced
  5. 2 tablespoons sugar
  6. Kosher salt
  7. Freshly ground pepper
  8. 2 medium Hass avocados, peeled and thinly sliced
  9. 1/3 cup pitted kalamata olives
  10. 8 anchovy fillets in oil, drained
  1. Preheat the oven to 450°. On a lightly floured work surface, using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll out the dough to a 12-inch round. Transfer the dough to a parchment paper–lined baking sheet and brush with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden and cooked through. Transfer the crust to a rack to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil. Add the onions and sugar and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions are softened and deep golden, about 15 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Top the crust with the caramelized onions, avocado slices, olives and anchovies and serve.
