Looking for a savory dish to serve at your Easter brunch this Sunday? You should definitely try Pizza Rustica, this week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe. Don't be confused by the name; it's not a pizza you normally think of. It's actually a deep-dish pie that's similar to a quiche and packed with ricotta, mozzarella, pecorino romano and prosciutto.
The pizza rustica was easy to make because the pastry dough was extremely forgiving. For my pie I included two more cured meats to make it super flavorful, calabrese salame and capocollo. Next time I think I'll also add some fresh or dried herbs like basil and oregano to kick it up a notch. While a slice can be enjoyed cold or at room temperature I preferred it warm with a side of arugula tossed in vinegar and oil. Delizioso!
Capital Region Dining and The Place They Call Home are this week's hosts and have published the recipe on their blogs.
