How to Make It
    For the Coca with figs & sobrassada sausage
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (350°F). To make the dough, mix the yeast, olive oil and a pinch of salt with the lukewarm water in a large bowl.
  2. Add the flour slowly, kneading until it forms a compact and elastic dough. Make sure it doesn’t stick to the sides of the bowl.
  3. Cover with a cloth, and leave in a warm place to rise (generally about 30 minutes).
  4. For the topping, gently fry the onions over a low heat in the olive oil until caramelised (about 15 minutes). Set aside.
  5. Divide the pastry into six sections and roll each section into a ball.
  6. Roll out each ball into a long, narrow oval shape. You won’t need to dust the surface with flour, or oil the baking tray, because this dough is very elastic and shouldn’t stick.
  7. Spread a thin layer of caramelised onion onto the dough.
  8. Top with slices of fig, and dot each fig slice with a little sobrassada.
  9. Bake the coques in the oven at 180°C (350°F) until the base is golden. Serve warm.
  10. For the Coca with chanterelle mushrooms
  11. Follow the recipe above from steps 1 through to the end of 7.
  12. Sauté the pancetta in a frying pan, until it has released all the fat. Add the mushrooms and the garlic. Stir constantly, on a medium heat, until the ingredients are golden.
  13. Spread the mixture on top of the layer of caramelised onions, and bake as above.
