Caramelised red onions and cranberries

  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
  • 2 large red onions, sliced
  • 50 g dried cranberries
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) sugar

Flat bread base

  • about 300 g ready-made bread dough (available at most bakeries) or use a pizza base recipe
  • 3 Tbsp (45 ml) cake flour, for rolling
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) olive oil, for brushing

To finish

  • 100 g garlic and herb Chevin or plain goat’s cheese, sliced or crumbled
  • a large handful of wild rocket (about 30 g)
  • extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • freshly milled black pepper

Caramelised red onions and cranberries

In a small saucepan, sauté the onions, cranberries and sugar in the oil until slightly softened. Cover with a lid and simmer for 10 minutes. Simmer uncovered for a further 5 minutes until soft and sticky. Keep to one side.

Flat bread base

Preheat the oven to 240 °C.

On a floured surface, roll the dough out into a rectangular shape and place onto a greased baking tray. Stretch it out some more on the tray. Prick some holes onto the base with a fork and brush with olive oil. Bake for about 8 minutes or until golden and with crispy edges.

To finish


Top the base with the caramelised onions and cranberries and spread out evenly. Arrange slices of goat’s cheese over the onions and top with fresh rocket. Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and season with freshly milled black pepper.

This flat bread is lovely on its own but is also great as part of a tapas-style meal.
