Underwhelming pissaladiere

  • 0

Newbie here- hi!

I had only ever read about pissaladiere- never tried it, so I have no basis for comparison. My expectations were high because what could be better than bread, onions, anchovies, and olives, right? I used an Ina Garten recipe that called for the following ingredients:

1/4 cup good olive oil
2 pounds yellow onions, halved and sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 whole cloves garlic
1 1/4 cups warm
2 envelopes dry yeast
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons good olive oil
4 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for kneading
2 teaspoons kosher salt
12 to 18 anchovy fillets
12 French black olives, preferably oil-cured, pitted

Nothing went wrong. The dough was excellent, but other than that? MEH. It tasted like bread and caramelized onions, which isn't the worst thing in the world, but nothing special either. Did I miss something? Can anyone weigh in with suggestions or share your experience with this dish- whether homemade or otherwise?
