How To Make Pizzagaina

Pizzagaina is a savory Italian pie often served for Easter. This simplified recipe is as delicious as ever, with its mix of cheese & pepperoni.

Prep: 20 mins
Cool: 10 mins
Cook: 45 mins
Total: 1 hr 15 mins
Makes:

Ingredients

  • 4 unbaked pie crusts, 9-inch, divided
  • 16 fl oz whole-milk ricotta cheese, 2 containers
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ lb pepperoni
  • ½ lb sweet capicola, (coppa)
  • ½ lb hot capicola, (coppa)
  • 1 egg white, slightly beaten

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Press 1 pie crust each into the bottom of two 9-inch pie pans.

  2. Mix ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, and eggs together in a large bowl. Roughly chop the pepperoni, sweet capicola and hot capicola; fold in chopped meats. Spoon half the mixture into each of the 2 prepared pie pans.
  3. Top each pie with a pie crust, crimping the edges together creating a seal. Brush the top of each pie with egg white.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the crust is golden brown. This will take 45 to 60 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
