TWD | Baking with Julia : Pizza Rustica
We love pizza. I am not sure that love even captures the complete feeling we have over our favorite food. There is a pizza restaurant down the block from our place and we hit it up every Friday night. They have a beet salad that the baby loves (the wait staff are always amazed to watch him devour it) and pizza that is good. Really good. So when the the TWD recipe for the month was Pizza Rustica, I was ever so eager to try it.
I read the recipe and scratched my head. "How is this a pizza?" I wondered. I threw my confidence into Julia and Dorie and went about making this. Along the way I stopped and questioned what Julia and Dorie were thinking. I finally gave in and declared "We love pizza and we love pie!" I then crossed my fingers that it would all work out in the end.
You know what? It did. This little pizza is it's own thing and a delicious one at that. Make sure to let it cool. We couldn't wait and got a gloppy serving that tasted great but was well, gloppy.
I followed the recipe as written. Find the recipe at Baking with Julia by Dorie Greenspan or visit Emily of Capitol Region Dining and Raelynn of The Place They Call Home, the TWD hosts.
