Pizza al formaggio

This speciality from Le Marche is also known as Pizza di Pasqua (Easter Pizza!) and is prepared during the Easter season as a savoury treat - sometimes served on Easter morning with cured meat and boiled eggs or later in the day with a glass of red wine.


This simple recipe will make a wonderful addition to any spring feast, going well with meats, cheeses and salads.


Traditionally it is cooked in a round mould called a “tielle” much like the Christmas Panettone. If you don’t have this exact shape then any deep, round cake tin will work just fine.


Ingredients for Pizza al formaggio


INGREDIENTS:

- 500g of all purpose flour

- 3 eggs

- 100g of grated Parmesan cheese

- 100g of grated pecorino

- 7g of dry yeast

- 200ml of whole milk

Also; One electric mixer if you have one.
