Ingredients:

Base

175g / 6 oz Odlums Cream Plain Flour
125g / 4 oz Margarine
3 to 4 tablespoons Cold Water
Pinch Salt and Pepper

Topping

3 Large Onions (peeled and thinly sliced)
25g / 1oz Margarine
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 Egg (beaten)
2 tablespoons Cream or Milk
75g / 3oz Cheese crumbled or roughly chopped (Gorgonzola, Danish Blue, Cheddar)
Freshly Ground Pepper

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6.
  2. Lightly grease a flat baking sheet or a 26cm /10″ pizza tray.
  3. Heat margarine and oil in a saucepan, add the sliced onions and sugar and “sweat” or fry over a low heat until onions are soft and lightly browned. Stir the onions occasionally during cooking.
  4. Meanwhile, make the base by placing the flour, salt, pepper and margarine in a bowl. Rub in the margarine until the mixture starts to come together, then add sufficient water to bring the mixture together to form a dough.
  5. Place on a lightly floured board and roll out to fit the pizza tray or a 26cm/10″ round on a flat baking tray.
  6. Allow to rest while finishing the topping.
  7. When onions are ready, remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  8. Add the egg, cream or milk and the cheese.
  9. Stir well to combine all the ingredients together.
  10. Spread over the base and sprinkle with freshly ground pepper.
  11. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until brown and “set looking”.
  12. Serve hot with a green salad.
