the Teramana Easter pizza – Italian Cuisine

Teramo Easter pizza

Abruzzo boasts many important typically Easter recipes, but Easter Pizza is a real must for breakfast and lunch at these parties

There Easter to Teramo it is a very serious matter, especially at the table.
There are many typical dishes that are prepared these days, but probably the most important of all is the Easter Pizza.

A long leavening makes the difference

At first sight looks like a panettone because very often it is prepared right in the panettone paper mold.
In reality it is a question of a leavened dough, but it has no butter among the ingredients.
The recipe is quite simple and the preparation is similar, but you have to be very careful about two things to get a perfect Easter pizza: leavening and cooking times.
The leavening is divided into two phases, or rather three if we consider the lievitino. The last traditionally lasts a whole night and must be done in a closed environment, away from heat sources.
The secret of many Teramo ladies is to leave the pizzas to rise next to some basins of boiling water because humidity helps the dough to grow.
As for cooking, however, a lot depends on the type of oven. Certainly with the wood oven the result is much better.
Since it is practically used to prepare an Easter pizza a whole day, often at least 5-6 are put in the pipeline to amortize work times.

Tradition and variants

The traditional Easter pizza has inside only aniseed, but over time it has been enriched with the addition beforeraisin, then also gods candied and finally of the chocolate.
However, there are no rules and everyone can do it as they wish, more or less greedy.
The version we will call "poor", therefore with few additions, is perfect for the Easter breakfast also known as "sdiuno" and as an appetizer for lunch because it can be served with boiled eggs, cheese and cold cuts.
The "rich" version instead must be strictly accompanied with chocolate eggs.
