French friday with Dorie: Pissaladiere



This Friday we had a pissaladiere to make. A sort of pizza topped with onion, anschovies and olives. The onion are stoved for quite a long thyme with herbs and get a sweet bite. They tasted really well.
But to be honest. I really think this is not a recipe for a day in October when it is rather cold, as it was this week.
The salty anchovies and olives are probably tasting really well on a hot summer day with a cold glass of refreshment in one hand and a piece of pisaladiere in the other.
I certainly think that as a party dish this is going to work out quite well.
But not this week.
And, because of the particular taste of the olives and anchovies, it's not a very good recipe for my small childeren.
So I am not sure if this is a recipe that I am going to make a lot of times. Certainly not in winter.

But it looked great and it smelled very well too.

I think there are going to a lot of mixed feelings amongst the group on this one.
Nice pictures!

Great photos! I had to add tomatoes myself because I'm not fond of anchovies.

Whatever your feelings about this pissaladiere, it certainly looks great in your shots! Love the green olives too!

That's funny, I thought this was a perfect fall recipe! I can't bear to turn the oven to 425 in the summer! You are right about the refreshing drink for sure.

Love your photos! I really liked this recicpe. I didn't even try feeding it to the kids, although after watching them tear into smoked salmon and caviar blinis, I think they might just have liked this one, too.

Loved this but I couldn't eat the anchovies. Yours looks wonderfully delicious, even if it wasn't a huge hit! Have a nice weekend!

I loved this one! Its easily something we would make for a light lunch or something, even in the winter! /god knows we make enough soups or piping hot dishes in the dead of summer! :) Glad you enjoyed it too!

I loved it, but agree this is more of a spring/summer recipe. Makes me think of the French Riviera for some reason! Happy French Friday!

Your pissaladiere looks wonderful, Anja. Great job!

I can see small children not liking this with the carmelized onions and anchovies, but your pissaladiere looks so pretty.

Beautiful photos!

Looks delicious, Anja. I thought this was perfect for the current cooler weather, though I agree the flavors would be nice in the summer too.

I went for the refreshing drink, despite the chilly weather (we broke out the sweaters and heat this week). I agree on the anchovies. It looks great in your photos and I love the green olives!

Ei said...

I can see where you're coming from regarding this being warm-weather food. I'd agree with that. I hope you enjoyed it anyway!

Yours looks beautiful! My kids weren't too fond of this one... come to think of, neither was my husband!

I love those charred bits of onions! Those are always my favorite part wherever they show up!

As everyone else is saying - your photos are just lovely ! I was struck by the first ones in that this was the most "fresh" looking (or Spring-ish) pissaladiere that I recall seeing. And I love those little dark onion bits - they are my favorite part. Great job !!
