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
  1. 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.
  2. For the pizza: Preheat the oven to 500 to 550 degrees F. Lightly oil a 10-inch round baking pan.
  3. 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.
