Sicilian Christmas Pizza (Sfincione)
Topping a thick-crust pizza with bread crumbs might sound like a strange idea, but it really is the crispy, cheesy secret sauce behind this Sicilian Christmas Pizza. Well, that and the actual sauce of onion and anchovies--ingredients you might want to keep secret from guests. Also key is the extremely sticky dough, which bakes into a feather-light, spongy crust that contrasts perfectly with the crumbly topping. Garnish with the customary dried oregano if desired.
Recipe Summary test
Add any tomato sauce you prefer. For best results, sauce should be highly seasoned.
I'm not claiming any kind of authenticity here as I didn't use casciocavallo, the traditional cheese for this pizza, so feel free to use whatever melty cheeses you like for the topping.
If bottom gets soggy, pizza slices can be reheated in a dry pan, which will crisp up the crust nicely.
