Caramelised Onion and Mushroom Pissaladiere

Just over the border of Italy, in Southern France, you’ll find their take on the traditional Italian Pizza. Pissaladiere is typically made with a thicker bread dough, however for this recipe we’ve used ready rolled puff pastry to speed up the cooking time. Topped with sweet caramelised onions and wild mushrooms, this dish is perfect eaten hot or cold as a light snack or appetizer.
