TWD- Pizza Rustica

I know one of the first rules of cooking and baking is to read the recipe all the way through. I read this recipe through a few times so I knew what ingredients, how to make the dough, and how long it would take to prepare. I decided to make this for dinner tonight. I made the crust this afternoon and left it in the fridge for a few hours. 
We eat at 5pm so I thought I'd just start this at 4:20 or so because it bakes for around 30 minutes.
How did I miss that you're supposed to cool it completely before serving? We ended up just eating it hot. And a little runny.
This is an interesting dish- a sweet crust filled with a ricotta cheese, eggs, cheese, and prosciutto (my fave). The crust isn't subtlety sweet, my daughter thought it tasted like cookies and left out eating the filling. :) Both my husband and I really liked this. My kids, not so much.
Margaret and Jessica will have the recipe!


  1. Funny your daughter thought the crust tasted like cookies! It looks great!

  2. Your pizza looks great. I think this is a dish that appeals to adults more than kids, although one of my teenagers enjoyed it.

  3. Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I love the way your pizza rustica is and all of your cakes, you have a new follower!!

  4. Your pizza looks great! I'm glad it was a hit for you and the husband.

  5. It looks perfect. I think your daughter is right about the cookie taste. It just doesn't seem to be a kid-friendly dish as a whole. Who wants to make kid friendly things all the time though? I didn't see the cool completely thing until I was making it for dinner either. It was still warm when we ate it. oops.

  6. What kid wouldn't want cookies for dinner :-)
    Looks good!
