How to make it

  • CRUST:
  • Combine flour and butter in food processor and pulse until mixture resembles a coarse meal.
  • Add the eggs, sugar, pepper and lemon zest.
  • Process until mixture turns into a smooth dough.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of the cream and pulse until incorporated.
  • The dough should be smooth and soft, but not sticky.
  • You can "fix" dough by adding flour or cream depending on adjustment necessary. Use either SPARINGLY!
  • Remove dough to lightly floured surface and form into a large disk.
  • Wrap disk in plastic and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • Position the rack on the bottom of the oven.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large heavy frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the sausage and saute until golden brown, breaking up as you go.
  • Transfer mixture to a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the eggs, ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan.
  • Mix well.
  • Add all of the meats and stir to combine.
  • **This step is best done with clean hands.
  • Cut off 1/3 of the dough and set aside.
  • Roll out the larger piece on a lightly floured board to a 16 to 17" round.
  • Transfer dough to a 10" springform pan.
  • Gently press the dough to fit.
  • Trim dough overhang to 1".
  • Save scraps for patching holes later!
  • Spoon filling into the dough lined pan.
  • Roll out remaining piece of dough into a 12" round.
  • Place dough over filling.
  • Pinch edges together to seal.
  • Brush the egg white over the entire pastry top.
  • Bake until crust is golden brown, about 1 1/2 hours OR until toothpick inserted into pie comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven.
  • Let pie cool for at least 30 minutes.
  • Release pan sides.
  • Transfer pie to a platter.
  • When cooled, cut into huge wedges and serve.
  • **Go outside and run two miles wearing a weighted vest to counteract the assault on your arteries! (This was NOT my addition!)

    OK. If I walk from Minnesota to Pennsylvania I should be able to have a slice or two. You start cooking. I haven't even made it to two miles on the tread mill yet. I am going to print this and hang it in front of the treadmill.-Lori

    Lorraine, Great recipe 5 for sure. I was just wondering, instead of running 2 miles in a weighted vest do you think I could just drink a glass of red wine and take a nap?
