    Does anyone have a recipe for the sicilian type bakery pizza that used to be sold at Di Leos bakery at Taylor and May back in the 1970's? Its made in a big oblong pan and they cut pieces of it off and its served at room temperature. I believe it is sold elsewhere but I would like to make it at home. I used to buy it on my way to class we lived in a coachhouse in the alley by the bakery. Need recipe for dough especially. Its not the same as thin crust dough.

    As an amatuer home pizza maker, I have learned a great deal from the pizzamaking.com website, which has forums of pizza style you would like to imitate. Even if you follow instructions very well, it's still going to be a learning curve since a lot of dough making is the "feel". Below is a link to sicilian style, good luck!

    Hi,

    Since I wasn't leaving home today, I needed something interesting to do.

    I found Kenji's Sicilian pizza with pepperoni and spicy tomato sauce. It's Kenji's effort to emulate Pearl Street Pizza from New York.

    I made a half recipe fitting a jelly roll pan, because full was a half-sheet pan size. I also halved the amount of crush red chilis called for, because heat is not my thing.

    The family really liked this pizza. They were glad I cut the chili in half, since they felt the impact of what was present.

    The greatest compliment: "You can make this again."

    Kenji’s recipe is in our regular rotation and I agree that it’s excellent.

    I'm curious, do you typically make the full recipe or halve it? A half sheet pan is really quite a bit of pizza.

    Thanks!

    We've always done the full pan and frozen leftovers. It reheats very well.
    It's also a good recipe for a small party because there's little last minute prep.

    kenji's pizza looks great, except for the pepperoni(which is the only sausage i don't like). can anyone who's made it compare it to d'amato's pizza slices? this is my favorite pizza in the world (though sometimes it's overbaked; sometimes underdone). it looks close- but i don't want to go to the trouble of making it if it tastes nothing like it. thanks!

    ...thanks, but they don't live/eat in chicago and can't compare it to d'amato's bakery pizza...

    I usually prefer thin crust, but there’s some styles of pizza where I don’t mind a thick crust. This looks enjoyable.
    I’ll have to try some variation without obviously the pepperonis since I am vegetarian.

    Joan,

    If irisarbor is ok with this, I will make it for the Mardi Gras party. You can then test it and offer your considered opinion.

    I can bake it, then quickly get it over there within 10 minutes. It will be awfully close to take-out pizza with an amateur delivery person: me! :D

    that's really nice of you- but please don't make it just because i want to try it...i might be on a very restricted diet the week of the party and may not eat much-i'll just enjoy the company and the music....but, good news if you DO make it: sicilian pizza is intended to be eaten at room temp, or hot, so you don't have to rush it over...
