This is not a pizza post. Onion Tarte with American/Canadian Tid bits

Please click here for my new blog
When I first met my bf who is my husband now he made me a tarte of onion tomato and olive one night and it was so yummy. Since then he has never cooked for me again.
This tarte had a look of a pizza but the dough was a kind of shortcrust e.g what you make quiche with. You must pre bake the dough then baste with French mustard not Frenches mustard. I use Maille which I hope is vegan:) I do not see how it could not be. We baste the dough in french mustard and add a bunch of slow cooked onions on the dough mixed with chopped tomatoes and then we top with olives. I wanted to show off the little sliced meats and cheese I got from NYC so I added some Yves pepperoni and some follow your heart cheese. I sprinkled his French tart with Italian seasoning and made it Frentalian. It was good none the less. I suggest that you made small individual tarts so that it can be thick like a tart and look poor like a pizza. The pic is an understatement to how this taste. I suggest not adding other toppings and keep this one very simple. It is even fine for a last min picnic and the taste is very good. For the dough you can make a short crust dough 1/2 fat to flour and iced water and overwork it a bit.
Since the oven was on I made some of Julie Hasson Chocolate Mocha Cakes which are my favourite but this time I made a chocolate peanut butter ganache it was very yummy. I am still scared esp when it comes to vegan cake baking. I am afraid to try new cupcake recipes. If anyone has a fool proof one please email me it so I can make another cupcake.

Tommorrow I am going to experiment with the sole pack of tempeh I bought back with me. I have no idea what it taste like how it is suppose to be seasoned... I will hope for the best
