ITALIAN EASTER PIE
- For the dough: In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and water; set aside. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour and salt and pulse a couple of times. Add the chilled butter and pulse about 10 times until pea-size pieces remain. Add the egg mixture and pulse 15 to 20 times until a dough ball forms. Place the dough ball on a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 1 minute. Divide into 2 balls, wrap each ball with plastic wrap and rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
- For the filling: While the dough is resting, whisk together the ricotta cheese, salt, some pepper and 6 of the eggs in a medium bowl and set aside. In a 10-inch skillet over medium heat, add the oil and brown the sausage, breaking up the pieces while it's cooking, 5 to 8 minutes. Drain the sausage on a paper towel-lined plate, leaving behind any fat. Add the asparagus and cook until beginning to soften, 4 to 5 minutes. Set aside.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch cake pan with butter.
- On a well-floured counter, roll out each dough ball into a thin 14-inch circle. Cover one circle with plastic wrap until ready to use. Loosely roll the other dough circle around a rolling pin and unroll over the prepared cake pan, letting the excess hang over the side. Press the dough gently into the sides of the pan so there is no gap between the pan and the dough. Shingle the salami over the bottom of the dough, creating an even layer. Then, add the asparagus in an even layer on top of the salami. Next, add half of the egg mixture and spread it out evenly, then top with the capicola in an even layer. Layer in the sausage and top with the remaining egg mixture, then finally the provolone cheese.
- Whisk the remaining egg with 1 tablespoon water and brush the outside rim of the dough with the egg wash. Add the remaining dough circle to the top of the pie and cut off the excess dough. Press both circles together to create a seal. Brush the remaining egg wash over the entire top and slice a couple slits in the top of the pie. Bake until golden brown, 45 to 55 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

- Blend 3/4 cup of powdered sugar, eggs, vanilla, orange zest and ricotta in a food processor until smooth. Stir in the rice and pine nuts. Set the ricotta mixture aside.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Lightly butter a 9-inch glass pie dish. Lay 1 phyllo sheet over the bottom and up the sides of the dish, allowing the phyllo to hang over the sides. Brush the phyllo with the melted butter. Top with a second sheet of phyllo dough, laying it in the opposite direction as the first phyllo sheet. Continue layering the remaining sheets of phyllo sheets, alternating after each layer and buttering each sheet. Spoon the ricotta mixture into the dish. Fold the overhanging phyllo dough over the top of the filling to enclose it completely. Brush completely with melted butter.
- Bake the pie until the phyllo is golden brown and the filling is set, about 35 minutes. Transfer the pan to a rack and cool completely. Sift powdered sugar over the pie and serve.

Yield 2 nine inch deep dish pies
Number Of Ingredients 15
- CRUST PREPARATION: Mix flour and salt together, cut in shortening with 2 knives or pastry cutter.
- Add beaten eggs to flour mixture slowly, incorporating very well.
- Add milk (additional liquid if necessary) to hold mixture together as it is kneaded.
- Shape pastry into two balls.
- Chill for 30 minutes or until ready to begin making the pie.
- PREPARATION FOR FILLING: Remove the sausage meat from the casings; set aside in small bowl.
- In another small bowl, place all the mozzarella, cut into 1/4-inch cubes; set aside.
- In another small bowl, place all the provolone, cut into 1/4-inch cubes; set aside.
- Do the same for the ham and salami and proscuitta; set aside keeping all the ingredients separate.
- Boil dozen eggs; cool, peel, cut into quarters and set aside.
- Make EGG WASH:In a blender, add 10 eggs, parsley, 1/2 cup grating cheese.
- Blend; set aside.
- This will be used between layers of ingredients as the"holding agent" to keep all the ingredients together.
- TO ASSEMBLE PIE: Roll chilled pastry on floured board to 1/8-inch thickness.
- Make into 2 large circles to fit into a 9-inch deep-dish glass pie plate and to cover.
- Better to do this in glass; it cooks more evenly and you can see if your bottom has fully cooked.
- Fit the pastry into the pan and up the sides.
- Begin by layering the quartered hard boiled eggs as the first layer on bottom, about 1-inch apart from eachother.
- In between each quartered slice of egg, with your fingers, place a small piece of sausage meat; going around the whole first layer of the pie.
- Sprinkle a layer of grated cheese all around.
- Next, a thin layer of mozzarella; (one piece high), Next a thin layer of proscuitta; Next a thin layer of provolone cheese; Next a thin layer of salami; Next a thin layer of boiled ham.
- Pour 1/2 cup of your egg wash over the first layer.
- Begin again with your quartered eggs; alternating the quarters"in between" the quarters of the first layer.
- Layer each ingredient as you did on the first layer and so on.
- Proceed with your second layer; again egg wash poured over the layer, etc.
- Depending on the depth of the pie pan, the size of your cut ingredients, you may have two or three layers, but don't fill it beyond the rim of the dish.
- Cover the last layer with another piece of pastry dough and crimp together firmly"gluing" if necessary to keep things together as the pie expands.
- Cut a steam hole on top and brush pastry with a tablespoon of milk (just to enhance the beauty of this meal for presentation) to form a glaze.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Bake for one hour or until the pie crust is golden on the top and ingredients are bubbly.
- The aroma will tell you the pie is done!
- If you filled the pie too much with egg wash or ingredients, it may boil over.
- It is a good idea to place a sheet of aluminum foil beneath the pie in the oven to catch any drips.
- Serve the pie warm.
- Keep Refrigerated; leftovers can be reheated nicely in a toaster oven or a microwave for 1 minute.

- In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, olive oil, and instant yeast.
- Add the flour and salt, and mix the dough together with a wooden spoon until it forms a ball. Then knead the dough for 1 minute, or until it feels smooth and springy.
- Cover the dough in the bowl with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place for 2 hours.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
- In a large bowl, add 10 eggs, ricotta, parsley, and Pecorino Romano. Whisk the mixture until smooth.
- Add the ham, pepperoni, provolone, hard salami, prosciutto, and bread crumbs. Fold in the cubed meats and cheeses. The texture should be thick and slightly wet.
- Once the dough has doubled in size, dump it onto a floured surface, knead for 2 minutes, and shape it into a ball. Roll the dough out to a rough circle, about ¼-inch (½-cm) thick.
- With a pizza cutter or knife, cut out a large disc that is 2 inches (5-cm) wider than a 9-inch (23-cm) springform pan or round baking dish. With the rest of the dough, cut thick strips about 9 inches (23-cm) long and 1 inch (2 cm) thick.
- Transfer the dough disc into the springform pan or baking dish. Gently press the dough against the bottom and sides of the pan, allowing the excess to hang over the sides.
- Pour the egg, cheese, and meat mixture into the pan. Pack the filling down and smooth the top with a spatula.
- Weave the strips of dough on top to create a decorative pattern. Trim any excess dough, then fold and crimp the edges. Brush the top with egg wash.
- Bake the pizza rustica for 2 hours, or until the filling is cooked through and the pizza dough has browned.
- Let the the pizza rustica cool completely. Remove from the pan. Chill in the refrigerator overnight on a wire rack.

- Line a 9-inch square cake pan with parchment paper, leaving a 1-inch overhang on two sides. On a nonstick baking mat or lightly floured piece of parchment paper, roll out one piece of dough to a 14-inch square, about 1/8 inch thick. With a dry pastry brush, sweep off excess flour; fit dough into the prepared pan, pressing into corners. Prick the bottom of the dough all over with a fork. Roll out the remaining dough in the same manner and, using a pastry wheel, cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Transfer dough strips (on parchment) to a baking sheet. Chill pie shell and dough strips until firm, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Line the chilled pie shell with parchment paper, leaving a 1-inch overhang; fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake until the edges just begin to turn golden, about 15 minutes; remove parchment and weights. Return to oven; continue baking until the edges turn light golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
- In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium heat; add spinach and cook until just wilted. Drain spinach on paper towels, then finely chop (for about 4 cups).
- In a medium bowl, combine spinach, ricotta, Parmesan, mozzarella, prosciutto, the whole egg, 1 egg yolk, salt, and nutmeg. Spread evenly into cooled pie shell. Weave dough strips on top to form a lattice. Using kitchen shears, trim dough flush with the top of the pan. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining egg yolk and the cream; brush egg wash over the lattice top and the edge of the pie shell.
- Bake, rotating pan halfway through, until crust is golden brown, about 45 minutes (if edges or top of crust browns too quickly, loosely cover with aluminum foil.) Cool slightly on a wire rack. Using parchment paper overhang, gently lift pie out of pan. Serve warm or at room temperature. The pie is best eaten the same day it is baked, but it can be kept, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
