  • 4.4 oz unsalted butter cubed
  • 2 tbsp ice water
  • 2 gg yolks
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 4 oz plain flour


  • 1.8 oz pure pork sausage
  • 1.8 oz smoked provolone
  • 8.8 oz ricotta cheese
  • 4.4 oz mozzarella
  • 1.8 oz grated parmesan cheese
  • 3.5 oz chopped prosciutto
  • 3.5 oz chopped mortadella
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • A clove garlic crushed
  • 2 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 2 pinches chili powder
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp breadcrumbs


  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Pich of salt


  • Make the pizza dough in the usual way (you can follow the instructions here)
  • Divide the dough into two discs, one larger than the other, wrap them in cling film and place in the refrigerator to rest.
  • Place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat it to 400º F.
  • Fry the sausage in olive oil and set aside to cool. Add all the other ingredients except the breadcrumbs and mix thoroughly.
  • Roll the larger dough piece over a 9-inch spring form tin, leaving a few inches overlap. Sprinkle breadcrumbs over the pastry lined tin, add the filling and cover with the rolled out smaller piece. Turn the edges of the overhand over to form a border.
  • Glaze the top of the pie with the milk, salt and egg mixture and stab with a fork to create steam holes. Place on the baking sheet and bake at 400ºF for ten minutes, then turn down the heat and cook at 350ºF for 45 minutes.
  • Take pizza out of the oven and allow to cool for up to 25 minutes before serving. Makes 8-10 servings. Nigella Lawson’s How to Become a Domestic Goddess’ cookbook is a great way for beginners to learn how to bake basic treats, as well as for veterans to polish up on their skill while creating delicious and decadent baked goods.
