Sicilian pizza

Sicilian pizza

Sicilian pizza, also known as Sfincione (or Sfinciuni in Sicilian language) is a variety of pizza with ingredients sometimes incorporated into the dough, instead of just placed on top. This variety of pizza originates from Palermo, Sicily. An authentic recipe does not use mozzarella cheese, often adding small chunks of pecorino cheese and bits of anchovies.

However, in the United States, a Sicilian pizza is a square pie with dough upwards of an inch thick. This pizza is very popular, especially in the New York area. It is typically served in an aluminum baking sheet.

A particular variety originated from Messina, Sicily, which can be both considered a Sicilian Pizza or a focaccia, it's the focaccia alla messinese made with endive and anchovy.
