Pissaladière (UK: /ˌpɪsælædˈjɛər/, US: /ˌpsɑːlɑːdˈjɛər/,[2][3] French: [pisaladjɛʁ]; Niçard: pissaladiera [pisalaˈdjeɾɔ] or pissaladina [pisalaˈdinɔ]; Ligurian: piscialandrea [piʃalaŋˈdɾeːa]) is a culinary specialty originating from Liguria (particularly Genoa),[4][5][6][7] now also typical in southeastern France. It is often compared to pizza.


The etymology of the word seems to originate from the Latin piscis "fish",[8] which in turn originated pissalat, the name of an anchovy paste[9] (via peis salat, "salted fish" in older Ligurian and Niçard).[10]


The dough is usually a bread dough thicker than that of the classic pizza margherita, and the traditional topping usually consists of caramelised (almost pureed) onions, black olives, and anchovies (whole, and sometimes also with pissalat).[9]
