Sicilian White Pizza

Sicilian White Pizza recipe pictures

I used to think pizza was pizza. I didn’t differentiate between cheap pizza, homemade pizza, deep dish pizza etc…. To me, all pizza was pizza! I mean, when I was young I considered Little Caesars pizza.  Ha!! Obviously, I did not have very high standards. I am much more of a pizza snob these days. All pizzas are definitely not created equal. You will not hear me simply say, do you want pizza for dinner? That is like saying do you want ground beef for dinner? What kind of pizza?

In the past I have had: thin crust pizza, deep dish pizza, mini pizzas, Thai pizza, barbeque pizza and probably many others.  I have never had a pizza quite like this Sicilian white pizza though. However, I do wish I’d been eating it for years.  The toppings on this pizza really aren’t any different than any other pizza. We did not put a sauce on this pizza, but you could if you wanted to.  It is the crust that sets the pizza apart though. I really can’t even compare this crust to any other pizza crust I have had.  It is buttery and flaky and crispy.  I would even say it is closer to a pie crust than a pizza crust. Either way though, I highly recommend making this Sicilian white pizza!
