One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A Provençal open tart resembling pizza, typically made with onions, anchovies, and black olives.
- ‘The pissaladière of Provence, topped with an onion-and-tomato mixture, a latticework of salt anchovy fillets, and olives, is sometimes made with pastry, but properly has a bread base.’
- ‘Just over the border from Italy, in the south of France, they have their own version of pizza Pissaladière.’
- ‘Pissaladière is a specialty from Nice, in the South of France.’
- ‘And then, alas, the pissaladière was on plasticky pastry and all but free of anchovies, the salade de gésiers was greasy, the pig's head was fine but uninteresting with a good, tangy gribiche.’
French, from Provençal pissaladiero, from pissala ‘salt fish’.
