Onion Flatboard about to go into the oven

Onion Flatboard Appetizer

My mom always made onion pie shaped into rectangle with a top dough. The filling was outrageous. 

This appetizer is a modified version.


2 flatboards

1/2 cup black calamata olives, halved, pitted of course

1 - 15 oz can chopped tomatoes, drained very well

1 large white onion, sliced

Salt and pepper to taste

Olive oil

2 TBS Pesto

2 anchovies, chopped

Grated cheese


Lay 2 flatboards on cookie sheet.

In frying pan, add 1 TBS olive oil, and saute the sliced onion. Takes approximately 20 minutes to get to browned stage.

In bowl, combine drained tomatoes, olives, remaining olive oil, and anchovies.

Preheat oven to 375.

Spread the pesto on the flatboards. Top the pesto with the cooked onions. Top onions with remaining ingredients.

Sprinkle with grated cheese.

Place into the oven. Cook for 17-20 minutes or until the flatboards get crispy around the edges and everything gets cooked through.


You can add crumbled feta cheese to the mixture, if you like.

Cut into squares, using a pizza cutter or sharp kitchen shears.

Enjoy with some chilled Pino Grigio.....salute!


Hot out of the oven....smells Soo good
