      When I order pizza I usually like onions as my topping, especially fried onions. This pie reminds me of a very overloaded onion pizza, without the tomato sauce and cheese, or course! I made the dough in the food processor and love the fact that you don't have to roll it out, I just patted into the baking dish. I would edit the recipe a bit because the shortening is the last ingredient listed, although it is part of the dough and not the topping, so it should be higher up on the ingredient list, together with the flour and baking powder. In fact, I would edit the whole list and put the ingredients in the order needed. Otherwise, if you really don't read through the whole recipe first you might make a mistake. The pie isn't high as a quiche, but makes a lovely nosh or appetizer.
