  1. Heat the oil in a wide pan and add the onions. Cook gently for 5 mins uncovered then cover the pan and sweat for 25-30 mins or until the onions are quite soft and slightly caramelised.
  2. In a large bowl mix the flour, salt, yeast and sugar in a bowl. Beat in the milk, vinegar and egg and then, gradually, the oil. It should form a sticky dough. Cut the dough into large walnut size pieces and then press each flat with your hands on a baking tray. Spread the onions over the pizza base. 
  3. Drain the sardines and mash them roughly with a fork, then spread them over the onions. Squeeze over the lemon juice and grate over some salt and lots of black pepper. Cover lightly with clingfilm and leave in a warm place for an hour to rise.
  4. Heat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Bake for 20-35 mins, or until the pizzas are sizzling.
