Knead the dough with hands (if the dough needs extra water u can add it). Make a soft dough.
Now sprinkle flour on a flat surface and make the dough soft by kneading with hands for about 10 minutes.
Take a flat baking greased tray and put the dough over it. Make the dough even on all sides by tapping with your hands. I took 4 *4 inches baking tray.

Until the dough rises, start preparing the topping. Take 2 tablespoon olive oil in a saucepan and add onions and a teaspoon of sugar and caramelize for 10 minutes. Switch it off and keep it aside.
Preheat Oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

Bake it in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or till u see a nice brown color on the top.
