French Onion Flatbread


French onion soup is such a comforting classic and why not toss it onto some flatbread and cover with that amazing Gryere, which is so fragrant and inviting. I made this vegetarian version for a friend and he was amazed that there wasn't any meat at all, really delivers and just as satisfying as the real thing. Serve this up, topped with some dressed arugula, as a starter or a snack that is sure to impress.

Here's what you'll need

  • 3 or 4 medium onions
  • 2 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 1 cups white wine
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp flour
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup grated Gryere (more or less as you like it)
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary (or 1 tbsp dried)
  • 1 batch of pizza dough
  • salt and pepper
  1. slice the onions really thin

  2. sautee them with the garlic in the butter and olive on medium-low heat, oil until they're a nice deep colour (at least an hour)

  3. then sprinkle in the flour and cook about 5 minutes

  4. then add in all the liquids, the sugar and the whole rosemary sprigs (keep some of the tops of the sprigs to toss onto the flatbread before it hits the oven

  5. simmer until most of the liquid is gone...about an hour or so

  6. set aside and let cool slightly

  7. meanwhile make the pizza dough

  8. flatten the dough onto a baking sheet
