Pizzagaina: Traditional Italian Easter Pizza Pie

  • Easy

Ingredients

Share

Pizzagaina is a traditional savoury pie the Italian make during Easter time. The old-fashioned way takes quite a while to assemble, but I created a simplified recipes that tastes great!

Steps

1
Done

I begin by whisking together the eggs, then adding the Maille Dijon Mustard to give it a sweet kick.

2
Done

To make the rest of the filling, add the remaining ingredients to the egg mixture: the sausage, the cured meats, the ricotta & the mozzarella.

3
Done

Lay the pizza pastry into a buttered pie dish to create the base of the pie, leaving the extra pastry. Pour in the egg mixture and close off the pie with the extra pastry for a rustic, imperfect look. Brush with egg-wash & spread some sesame seeds to create a crunchy pie crust. Bake at 180C for about 45 minutes until the crust is golden brown. Serve warm.
