Stop the pizza delivery man, for ever! Unless… it’s being delivered directly from Sicily. I am sure that if you try this homemade pizza you will never buy into any impersonator again. Although most of us think of pizza as a round pie colored in red and white, pizza like pasta comes in different shapes, different thicknesses, with different crust, and different sauces or toppings, it’s pretty versatile. What is Pizza, but a piece of bread with anything you like on it. You may as well describe it or liken it to an open face sandwich, except more scrumptious. On some of my other pages I try to educate and encourage my readers to be creative and, that options are endless, as long as recipes are not crowded with many superfluous ingredients and as long as you keep it simple. I repeat again, that the simpler you keep the ingredients the more delectable the dish. This is is the essence of the Sicilian Cuisine. Also, more is not necessarily better, but a formula for messing up a dish. In Sicily or for that matter in all of Italy you will never see a pizza as it is made here in the USA, smothered in sauce and topped with 1 pound of cheese, or better with elastic string that we refer to as cheese. As you will notice from the photograph in this page, the pizza is not smothered in red sauce, and cheese is used sparingly. The reason is, that the taste does not come from those two ingredients but from the right blend of flavors. So, when you try your own concoction of ingredients, keep that in mind, find flavors that complement each other. Now, please entertain my thought and try my simplest recipe below and let me know if I am correct in claiming what I state. I have talked about Tomato Sauce and the best tomatoes, in my blog. Start with a good base, if tomatoes are delicious than the sauce is delicious. Also use real cheese, not the cheap shredded mozzarella or any other cheese preserved in a plastic bag. The amount of topping ingredients below are for a 16 inch pie. Adjust the amounts according to size. The dough recipe will give you about 3 pies. If you can't use it all stick in the fridge until next time. It will keep for a week or so. Or you may want to make bread with it. You'll find that recipe on my site.
