  • About

Around the corner from where we stayed in Antibes, France, there was the prettiest boulangerie (bakery) that sold sheet pans full of this savory onion tart. My version has capers instead of the traditional anchovies.


Then mix in

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ t chopped fresh rosemary
  • ½ t fresh thyme
  • 1 T capers


Slice 2 large onions using a mandoline (or very thinly with a knife) & sauté on med/low heat with 3 T oil, plus a pinch of salt & pepper, for 20 min, stirring often.

Sauté with the onions for 2 more min

Prepare an 8-in (20-cm) puff pastry sheet on a greased baking sheet by pinching up the edges to form a crust. Spread the onion mixture over the dough. Decorate the top with kalamata olives & thin slices of red bell pepper arranged in Xs.

Bake at 400°F (205°C) for 20 min
