Puff Pissaladière

Pissaladière is a wonderful dish that originated in the south of France. The dough is a bit thicker than Italian pizza and topped with pistou, rather than tomato sauce. On our Vegan Diploma course we made it with Ruff Puff pastry, but at home make a quick vegan version using puff pastry. We added freshly made vegan cheese to the top.
