Spanish Flatbread with Caramelized Onions – Coca de Cebolla Recipe
When it comes to simple and tasty food, Spain is king. This Spanish Flatbread with Caramelized Onions is no exception. Loaded with simple yet incredible flavors, beyond easy to make and done in about 45 minutes.
In Spain most people enjoy this flatbread for breakfast or afternoon tea, but you can always serve it as a tapas appetizer. Heck, I even like to serve this flatbread next to a salad for a complete meal. For this recipe I used a premade pizza dough, just to make things easier. If you prefer, you can make your own dough, get the recipe here.
What really takes this flatbread to the next-level in greatness is the additon of sweet smoked Spanish paprika. This really gives the flatbread a new dimension in flavors and takes it ¨over-the-top¨. I used Kiva´s sweet smoked Spanish paprika, truly an amazing Spanish paprika. It has the perfect balance of sweetness and smokiness to give this flatbread that ¨wow¨ factor.
