Sfincione de San Giovanni
Casual and quick, pizza isn't exactly something that you think of having a place on the Christmas dinner table. But the Sfincione de San Giovanni, also known as a Sicilian Christmas Pizza, is only served on special occasions including Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, Good Friday and on the feast of San Giovanni. Light and topped with bread crumbs, the Sfincione di San Giovanni is a Sicilian-style pizza. Aptly described by its name – Sfincione translates to "thick sponge" – the dish features a soft, tender dough and a flavorful sauce. This unusual twist on a common dish is ideal for holiday indulgences and impressing guests. This version is the creation of Bruno DiFabio, a World Champion Pizza Chef born to Italian immigrants and owner of 10 widely-lauded pizzerias.
