White Sicilian Pizza

I found this recipe on browneyedbaker and had to try it!

It was really good!! When I was younger my mom would make pizza without sauce for me... cuz sauce was yucky! Now I like it as long as it is smooth with no chunks in it and I still don't put very much! :) Oh and instead of tomato slices I just used pepperoni because we like our pepperoni pizza around here, and tomatoes...not so much!

The crust is thin and flaky almost like pie crust, you make it like you would a pie crust then add yeast with the water.


2-2 1/2 cups all purpose flour, plus extra for kneading
1 TBS sugar
1 tsp salt
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, chilled and cubed
2/3 cup warm water
1/2 tsp instant yeast

Preheat oven to the highest that it can go, mine was 525 degrees. Preheat your pizza stone with the oven if using a pizza stone.

In a mixing bowl combine the flour, salt, and sugar. Using a pastry blender add the butter into the flour mixture and work it in until it resembles coarse sand. In a large measuring cup combine the water and yeast. Add water to flour and mix with a fork until evenly moistened.

Turn onto a floured surface and knead until it is smooth and comes together. Split the dough into two equal balls and let them rest under a damp kitchen towel for 30 minutes.

If using a pizza stone, flour your pizza peal and shape the dough on that. If your just using a pizza pan then you can do it on parchment paper. Shape one piece of the dough into a 10 inch circle. Cook for 5 minutes. Repeat with the other piece of dough. I only made one pizza and froze the other dough (I froze it AFTER I cooked it for the 5 minutes, so now I'll just take it out of the freezer top it and put it in the oven for 5-10 mins!)

Take your crust out of the oven and brush with olive oil and top with cheeses, seasonings, and pepperoni, or whatever else you choose.


Olive Oil
Shredded Provolone
Shredded Mozzarella
Grated Romano
Garlic Powder
Dried Basil
Dried Oregano
Salt and pepper

Return to oven for 5-10 minutes, until cheese is melted and starts to brown. Mine only took 5 minutes.
