Roostica Pizza Sauce:
  • One 28-ounce can San Marzano tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 
  • 2 teaspoons ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, torn 
Sicilian Pie:
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • 21 ounces pizza dough, rolled into a ball 
  • 1/2 ounce garlic, finely chopped 
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 ounces sweet Italian sausage, sliced into half moons 
  • 2 ounces spicy salami, sliced 
  • 5 ounces mozzarella, grated 


Special equipment: a 10-inch round baking pan with 2-inch-high sides

For the sauce: Work the tomatoes through a food mill into a large bowl. Mix in the oil, pepper and salt. Gently stir in the basil.

For the pizza: Preheat the oven to 500 to 550 degrees F. Lightly oil a 10-inch round baking pan.

Place the dough in the pan and press it down evenly. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle the garlic, Parmesan and oregano over the top. Spoon 5 ounces of the pizza sauce over the dough, and then layer the sausage and salami slices. Top with the mozzarella and a drizzle of olive oil. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until golden brown and bubbly, 5 minutes.
