PIZZA RUSTICA


Primary category: Entrees

Ingredients

3 lbs ricotta
12 eggs
1 lb ham
1/4 lb cappicola
1/4 lb genoa salami
1/4 lb hot pepperoni
1/4 lb sharp provolone
1/4 lb jarlsberg or swiss
1/4 lb mozzarella
1 batch of pizza dough

Procedure

Mix ricotta and eggs. Chop cold cuts and shred cheeses and add to ricotta.

Line greased casserole with dough. Pour in cheese mixture. Top with more dough and seal edges. Cut a few small holes in the top to allow steam to escape. Bake at 350° until the dough is golden brown and the mixture has set. Eat hot or cold.

Dough: In the bowl of a food processor put exactly 3 cups of flour and one tsp. salt. In a measuring cup put exactly 1 1/8 cup of warm water (110°), one package of rapid rise yeast, 1 tsp sugar and 1/8 cup olive oil. When the mixture starts to foam, turn on processor and add liquid all at once. Process for 20 seconds. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Shape into a ball then place in a large oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until doubled in size. Voila! Pizza dough.
