Scacce ragusane

The procedure is different depending on whether you want to make scacce with tomato sauce or scacce of other flavors.


    • SCACCE WITH TOMATO SAUCE

Season the tomato sauce with oil, salt, sugar and basil to taste.
Roll out the dough very thin with a rolling pin.
Add the seasoned sauce and the chopped caciocavallo.
Add a drizzle of oil.
Close the scaccia by folding it to form layers.
Bake in a pre-heated ventilated oven at 200 ° until golden brown.


    • SCACCE WITH BROCCOLI OR WITH EGGPLANT

- Whit broccoli:
Wash the broccoli well by removing the stem, drain them well and cut them into small pieces.
Season with extra virgin olive oil, salt and a pinch of red pepper.
If you want you can add a little "capuliato".

- Whit eggplant:
Slice the aubergines, season with salt and fry until lightly golden.
Let them cool and cut them into small pieces.
Season with toasted breadcrumbs, grated cheese, a little tomato sauce and fresh basil.

Roll out the dough with a rolling pin to form a disk with a thickness of about half a cm. Fill half the disc with the dressing. Turn the part without seasoning over the part with the seasoning until it forms a crescent. Close the edge with the typical "riefico".
