You must see this video. Chef Pasquale is too cute for words. Pizza Rustica is an Italian tradition at Easter time.
My Mom always made it with pepperoni and hard boiled egg, but there are so many variations and you can put in it what you like (as like Chef Pasquale). As Mom got older, it was too much for her and time consuming to make the dough, so the store-bought dough works just as well.
Here is a blurb I found on recipes.wikia.com: “Unlike the flatter surfaced pizza commonly made in homes and restaurants, Pizza Rustica resembles a pie that is filled with cheeses and meats, which may include ricotta, mozzarella, provolone, and Romano cheese combined with meats such as sausage, salami, and prosciutto, or perhaps mortadella and soppressata instead of the sausage and salami. The ingredients are then baked within a pie dough crust and covering. The dough may be either pastry dough without sugar or yeast dough, both of which encase a savory filling of meats and cheeses.”
Happy Easter to everyone. For those of you who do not celebrate Easter, I wish you all a Happy April.
