1 cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
freshly cracked black (or mixed) pepper
1/2 ounce dried yeast dissolved in 1 T. warm water
12 ounces flour
1 egg, beaten lightly
coarse sea salt or kosher salt
chopped onion, for sprinkling

This flat bread bakes up wonderfully on a pizza stone set on the grill. Be sure that the stone is well heated before placing the onion bread on to bake. A pizza peel or the back of a pizza pan sprinkled with corn meal (so that it slides off easily onto the stone) can be used as a surface for preparing the flat bread while the grill or oven heats up.Stir salt, sugar and olive oil into warm water. Dissolve yeast in one tablespoon of warm water and add to mixture. Add flour gradually, mixing and kneading until smooth and elastic. Cover, and allow to rise overnight in a warm place, free from draft.
The next day, knead the dough and divide into balls about the size of a tennis ball. Roll each one out to about 1/2" thickness.
Brush with egg yolk diluted in two tablespoons water and sprinkle with coarse salt and chopped onion, and finally, coarsely cracked pepper. (For an extra kick, hot pepper flakes can also be sprinkled on lightly). Pierce the dough several times with a fork so that it will remain flat.
Bake on a lightly floured baking sheet in a 400°F oven for about 20 minutes until onions are brown and crust is crisp and golden.
Variation: Top pizza with a combination of black oil cured olives, sliced onions and anchovies. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired (cheese is entirely optional)!
