Pizza might be the most loved food everywhere. We learned the original recipe where Pizza was allegedly invented. Naples in Southern Italy. Basic ingredients,locally sourced and affordable, the end result an amazing soft dough, with a delicious yeasty scent.
“The modern pizza was invented in Naples, Italy, and the dish and its variants have since become popular in many areas of the world” Cit.
We hope you enjoy as much as we do, we used this lovely dough recipe to make what in southern Italy is called “Tortano” or “Casatiello” usually prepared in the days that lead into Easter. We used local cheeses such as Pecorino and Asiago and some of our local butcher Pancetta and Salsiccia piccante.
We baked it in tiny bite-size balls to make it easy to share with friends.
We paired with another Campania region masterpiece, Aglianico del Beneventano Doc, a fully bodied red delicious wine.
