Caramelised Fennel and Onion Pizza

Caramelised Fennel & Onion Pizza 015aFor this upmarket – but still easy – pizza I have used locally
produced posey bread. Havelock North’s, Pipi Café, is a popular Hawke’s Bay eatery and Pipi Truck draws crowds wherever it parks up.

Caramelised Fennel & Onion Pizza MultibPosey bread comes out of the same kitchen and allows you to have the taste of Pipi at home. Available as Original Posey or Roast Garlic Posey, both come in packs of five oval breads or pizza bases. Each is about enough to feed one to one and half people.

Look for Posey Bread at leading Hawke’s Bay supermarkets and
specialty food stores in Hawke’s Bay and around the country.

Caramelised Fennel and Onion Pizza

Chopped any feathery fennel tops and use as a garnish for the pizzas – scatter over pizzas just prior to serving.

Serves 4-6

3 medium red onions, thinly sliced
3 medium bulb fennel, thinly sliced – reserved any feathery tops for garnishing
olive oil
4-5 Posey Bread Pizza Bases or use pizza bases of your choice
2 cups grated cheese of your choice – choose a good melting cheese, on this occasion I used Mainland Mount Egmont

1              Place onions and fennel with a good drizzle of oil in a heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat. Cover and cook, stirring
occasionally, for 25-30 minutes or until mixture caramelises – it may take longer. This step can be done in advance.

2              Divide fennel mixture over bases, then scatter with cheese and bake for 10 minutes or until base is crisp. Serve scattered with chopped fennel feathery tops.

Happy cooking and eating.
