Going Sicilian at Casa



Going to California…. but first taking a plane to Sicily….

Well the kids do not care for Shrimp, so we took out the old Sicilian pan and took the kids to where there Grandmother and Great grandmother were born. Sicily…

We let this pie proof in the pan with olive oil for nearly 4 hours….

The kids were rewarded for their patience….

Set oven for 425 degrees and when oven is ready cook until crispy. The dough will form bubbles when cooking, you must open the oven and put fork holes in the bubbles so the go down. When cooked Flat Bread should look like the example below.

Cut long ways down the middle and then two more cuts on the short side to make 6 rectangle slices.

Pizza Sauce

Of course you can buy pizza dough and pizza sauce at the supermarket if you want to speed things up…


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. I will spin my pizza dough as if it is a normal pie, on a floured surface. With a 2 inch biscuit cutter cut small holes close to each other throughout the entire pizza dough. Both examples below.

donut holepizzette 1

Spray a pizza screen with baking spray or a cookie sheet. Lay out your Pizzets Dough. Add a spoon of pizza sauce on each one, and then top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Top Pizzets with whatever topping you choose. Example below.

pizzetts 4

If using pizza screen like I am in the above picture, place a pizza pan on the bottom rack of your oven to catch any melted cheese. Place your Pizzets on the top shelf. Cook till golden crust. 7-10 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes than place them on a serving dish. They wont last long. Enjoy, Jason.

Rosemary, Onion, and Garlic Focaccia


foc cooked

Last night I said I was going to make Homemade Dinner Rolls with our Soup and Salad for Dinner… I couldn’t sleep well- I think the menu didn’t sit well with me. So at 4:00 AM tossing and turning in bed I decided some Homemade Focaccia will compliment the Veal Milanese over Salad and Manhattan Clam Chowder better… I finally got to bed, so here it is.

Casaculinarian.com pizza dough recipe. Link below. I suggest using High Gluten Flour if possible.

Pizza Dough for Home

olive oil 1/2 cup

fresh rosemary sprigs 2 tablespoons

salt and pepper taste

grated parmesan cheese 1/8 cup

onion 1/2 julienned

garlic 3 bulbs sliced

Italian seasonings 1 tablespoons

parsley 1 tablespoon

granulated garlic salt 1 teaspoon

 On a Sicilian pan or cookie sheet add olive oil and spread out evenly  on pan. Place dough after it is ready on the pan. Spread out like a round thick pizza, so its still 1 inch thick. With a pastry brush add olive oil to top of dough. Use a fork and poke holes all over top of dough. Cover with plastic wrap and place in you oven for 3-4 hours. Do not turn oven on. The dough will proof and double in side.

Take dough out of oven and turn oven on 400 degrees. In a sauté pan add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sauté onions and garlic. Brown the onions and garlic but do not burn. Season Focaccia with all seasonings and herbs. Add onions and garlic to top. Example below.

raw foc

Cook on 400 degrees and before it browns add more olive oil with a pastry brush. Finish in the oven till golden brown. (olive oil may not be completely used.) Enjoy! You can use this for sandwiches or as a side.
