    1. Yes Gertrude. But as I told Annabelle. It is normally made with bread dough (which is more or less the same, isn't it???). Sixte

    1. Yes, try it Annabelle. Normally, the pissaladiére is exclusively made with bread dough. But it is very common to do it with pizza dough as I proposed it... Sixte

    1. Hello Carla. Pizza of course! "a kind of Pizza" appeared in 997 AD... Apparently, the Roman introduced the "onion tart" during the Avignon Papacy (XIV's). Best, Sixte

  10. People form Nice do not like plum tomatoes, I suppose. Just joking. Both recipes are excellent. Kelly

    1. No, Nice was the 1st one to do it : the famous "onions tart". They add anchovies and the "Pissa" was born! In Menton, it is called "Pichade" so they add tomatoes. Best, Sixte
