How to make it
- Preheat oven to 400° F.Place the flour, salt, and olive oil in a large bowl and work it with your hands until the oil is incorporated and the mixture resembles crumbs.
- Add the egg mixture and toss until the dough comes together in a dry mass. (Add another tablespoon or two of water, if needed.) Knead until just smooth.
- Flatten the dough into a disc; set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine all the filling ingredients except 1 tablespoon of the eggs and 1 tablespoon of the pecorino.
- Line the bottom and sides of a 9-inch-diameter pie dish with 2/3 of the dough (rolled out 1/8 inch thick), allowing for a 1-inch overhang.
- Scrape the filling into the dish and top with the remaining 1/3 of the dough (rolled out to the same thickness). Press the edges together to seal, and cut slits in the top crust.
- Brush with the reserved egg and sprinkle with the reserved cheese.
- Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350° F and bake until the top has puffed out, about 1 hour more.
- Let cool 15 minutes before removing from the dish. Serve warm or at room temperature.
