Spelt pizza with onions and no cheese

Who said pizzas have to include cheese? 

Try this version with spelt flour and lots of onion so that the dough is soft and juicy !!!

Ingredients for the dough:

250 gr. spelt flour

15 gr. yeast

1/2 cup warm water

2 spoonfulls of oil (if flavored with some spices much better)


Ingredients for the topping:

2 onions

Black salted dry olives (you can find in Moroccan shops)


fresh basil

Crumbled cod (optional)


To make the dough, mix in a bowl the flour, the baking powder and a pinch of salt. Gently add water, mixing well until the dough does not stick to your fingers.

Let stand covered with a cloth for 2-3 hours.

Then add the oil kneading the dough again and let it sit while preparing the topping.

For the topping, saute the onion with a pinch of salt in a pan with oil over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes.

Lower the heat and let continue cooking until golden brown and tender.

Add the pitted olives and the crumbled cod (optional).

Add dried oregano and fresh chopped basil and leave a couple of minutes longer.

Pre-heat the oven to 220 degrees.

Spread the pizza dough on a floured baking tray.
