Sicilian Pizza

8 Oct

Sicilian Pizza is characterized by a thicker dough, and less sauce, cheese and other toppings than traditional American pizzas.  This recipe is amazing!

Making pizza at home is a great family activity, kids love to help out with stretching the dough and arranging the toppings.  Sicilian Style Pizza is a simple recipe with minimal toppings, but, by using your homemade Weekend Tomato Sauce this pizza packs a ton to flavor.  You can always add on a couple of your favorite toppings, some pepperoni or olives.  To make a traditional Sicilian Pizza, add some anchovy.

What makes a Sicilian Style Pizza is that they are square, with more dough, less sauce, and cheese.  The authentic recipe calls for Pecorino Romano cheese and bits of anchovy.  Dough should be very think, some can be found to be over an inch, and is similar to Focaccia bread.  A very important step in making Sicilian Style Pizza is making time for the pizza to rise.  This really helps you achieve a thick crust, that is needed to make this different from the more familiar Neapolitan pizzas.
