GRANDMA’S PIZZA RUSTICA (ITALIAN HAM PIE)

From my Grandma’s memories, one of the most delicious Italian recipe.

 

 

 

 

SERVINGS: 4 to 6

INGREDIENTS:

2 cup ham, diced
3 cup of flour
3 tbsp sugar
3 eggs
1/2 cup shortening
1/8 cup milk
1 lb. sweet sausage
2 lbs. ricotta
1 small Mozzarella cheese, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup grated cheese
1/4 cup chopped parsley
4 raw eggs (additional)
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
 
 
 
METHOD
 
Mix the flour and sugar together.
 
Make a well in the center, add the 3 eggs, shortening and milk, mixing together until dough is easy to handle.
 
Divide in half; roll out one portion and fit into 9×13 inch baking pan.
 
Cover other half until later.

Parboil sausage 8 minutes and cut into small pieces.

Mix sausage with remainder of ingredients and spread in crust.

Roll out remaining dough and fit on top of mixture.

Seal edges; cut slit in top.

Bake for 45-60 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven until crust is golden brown.

Cool slightly before serving.

Brush tops with a mixture of 1 well-beaten egg and 1 tablespoon of milk (makes crust shiny).
