We like to think of our Sicilian pizza as the perfect Friday night meal: it's quick and easy, and it'll feed the whole family or a group of friends. Either way, you'll be happy you made it!

Sicilian Pizza

 3 - 4 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 1 round of store bought or homemade pizza dough
 1 tetrapak of Colavita Crushed Tomatoes
 6 - 8 anchovy filets, broken up into smaller pieces
 ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
 ¼ cup seasoned breadcrumbs (store bought or home made)
 Freshly ground black pepper
 Fresh basil

Heat your oven to 400°F.


Oil a baking sheet with Colavita Olive Oil.


Stretch out your pizza dough onto the baking sheet


Drizzle about 1 tbsp of Colavita olive oil over the top of the dough, smoothing it over the surface with your hands.


Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rise at room temperature for 30 minutes.


After 30 minutes is up, remove the plastic wrap. Press the dough very gently into the corners of the baking pan (if it doesn’t reach the edges of the pan, it’s ok).


Spoon the Colavita Crushed Tomatoes on top of the dough.


Place the anchovy pieces on top of the tomatoes, distributing them around the surface of the pizza.


Sprinkle the top with breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and freshly ground black pepper.


Drizzle with another tbsp of Colavita Olive Oil over the top.


Place the pizza in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through the baking process.


Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh basil.


Slice and Serve!
