OK so I didn’t make this fabulous creation my MIL did! However I do intend to make it one day! here is the recipe I might use or I will try hers 🙂
Pizza Rustica – Easter Pie from Italian Trips
1/2 cups flour
1/4 lb. butter
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/4 cup warm water
1 pepperoni, sliced thin
15 hard boiled eggs, sliced
1/4 lb. piece salami, cut in strips
1/4 lb. piece provolone diced
1/4 lb. prosciutto crumbled
1 small basket cheese Formagetto
To prepare the dough, blend the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Work in the butter with a fork until the flour resembles coarse meal. Stir in the eggs and water gradually with a fork.
When just mixed, cover with foil and refrigerate for 4 hours. Bring to room temperature and divide dough in half. On a lightly floured board, roll out half the dough to 1/8 inch thickness and 14 inches around. Place in a greased 12-inch pie plate.
Add the filling in the layers as follows: 5 sliced eggs, provolone, salami, 5 sliced eggs, basket cheese, pepperoni, prosciutto, 5 sliced eggs.
Roll out the remaining dough and cover pie. Seal around with a fork. Use a knife or scissors to cut off excess. Glaze with egg yolk and prick a few holes on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until golden brown. Serve slightly chilled.
