Sicilian Christmas Pizza (Sfincione)
You'll notice three main elements that distinguish this hearty Sicilian pizza from the rest--the first being the extremely sticky dough. With generous help from some olive oil, you'll work that wet dough into a nice, thick crust that turns feathery-light and spongy upon baking. Second, there's the extremely savory sauce, laden with foods rich in glutamates such as onions, tomatoes, and anchovies. It might be best to not tell your friends and family what's in it, at least not until they realize it’s one of the most delicious things they’ve ever had. Last but not least, the bread crumb topping, complete with anchovy and olive oils, provides another savory layer that makes this pizza unique.
