 Ingredients List

  • 3/4 ts Dried yeast
  • 1 c Warm water
  • 1/4 c Olive oil
  • 2 1/2 c All-purpose white flour
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 1/2 lb Red onions, sliced very fine
  • 4 tb Margarine
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 pn Sugar
  • Olive oil


Stir the yeast into the water in a large mixing bowl & let stand until it
is creamy, about 10 minutes. With a wooden spoon, stir in the olive oil
followed by the flour & salt. Knead by hand until moist & velvety. Place
dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover & let rise until doubled. Meanwhile,
saute the onions in margarine over the lowest possible heat until they are
soft & transparent, about 40 minutes. Season with salt & pepper & sugar.
Leave to cool. When the dough has risen, turn out onto a floured board &
shape into a long log. Transfer to a greased baking sheet & join the two
ends to make a ring of 6" tp 8" diameter. Keep the hole in the centre as
open as possible. Cover & let rise till doubled. 30 minutes before baking,
preheat oven to 400F. When the dough has risen, scoop up the onions in a
slotted spoon & pile on top of the ring. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce
the heat to 375F, brush the exposed surface with more olive oil & bake
another 15 to 20 minutes until golden & crispy. Remove & slide onto a wire
rack to cool.
