- In a food processor, combine anchovies, red wine vinegar, half of garlic and pepper to taste. Pulse until well combined. With processor running, add 3 Tbsp olive oil in a slow, steady stream until mixture forms a smooth paste. Refrigerate until ready to grill.
- In a large heavy skillet, heat 3 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat.
- Add onions, rest of garlic, bay leaf, Herbes de Provence and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally for 20-30 min.
- Uncover and continue cooking, stirring constantly until most liquid evaporates.
- Add fresh thyme; cool completely and discard bay leaf.
- Preheat grill to medium heat.
- Lightly brush both sides of naan with anchovy olive oil mixture. Place naan upside down on grill; cook for 2 min.
- Turn the breads and quickly spread each with about 1 tsp of the anchovy mixture. Top with onion mixture and sprinkle with olives.
