  3. Add in the olive oil and continue to knead for 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Oil a 9-inch pan or oven-safe dish with some olive oil. Place the dough ball in the middle of a pan or dish. Let the dough rise for 2 hours. It will double in size.
  5. When the 2 hours are up, blanch the onions, if you haven’t already. This involves boiling the onion slices for 3 minutes and then quickly putting them in an ice bath.

  7. Stretch the dough to the sides of the pan.
  8. Put the mix on top of the dough and let rise for another half hour.
  9. In the meantime, heat the oven to 350.
  10. When the half hour is up, bake the Sfincione for 40 minutes.
  11. Let cool for 5 minutes and then slice into quarters, or smaller pieces. Top with more grated cheese if you wish.
