Pizza Rustica

INGREDIENTS:
Dough:

• 4 c all-purpose flour
• 1 c (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1⁄2 inch cubes
• 1 large egg
• 1⁄2 tsp Kosher salt

Filling:

• 1 lb. Liuzzi Basket Cheese torn into small pieces
• 1 lb. dry Italian sausage, cubed
• 1 lb. soppressata, cubed
• 18 large eggs
• Black pepper, to taste

RECIPE:
Dough: Whisk 1 egg with 6 tbsp cold water. In food processor or large bowl, add the flour & butter; work the butter into flour until pea-sized crumbs remain. Slowly drizzle in the egg & water mixture, pulsing or stirring in the dough as you pour. Add 1 to 2 more tbsp water as needed to moisten the dough, until the mixture holds together when pinched (do not overmoisten). Turn out the crumbly dough & form into 2 rectangles: One piece use 1⁄3 of the dough, & the remaining 2⁄3 of the dough for the 2nd piece. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap & refrigerate until slightly firm & easy to roll out, 25 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease & flour a 9-by-13 pan. Take larger dough, roll out on floured board to thin rectangle about 12 by 16 inches. Transfer dough to prepared baking pan, tucking dough neatly into the edges & against corners. Roll out remaining dough & set aside. (If dough overwarms, refrigerate again for 5-10 minutes.)

Filling: Whisk 17 eggs. Stir in sausage, soppressata, & cheese, season with pepper to taste. Pour into the prepared crust, smooth with spatula. Top with smaller piece of dough, trim excess edges, press dough edges together to seal. Beat remaining 1 egg with 1 tsp water & brush on top of dough. Cut small slit in center to vent. Bake until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Remove & let cool slightly. Slice into squares & serve.
