New York Sicilian Pizza 

New York Sicilian Pizza

In the United States, Sicilian pizza denotes a thick, square-shaped dough topped with mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce.

The sauce is often placed on top of the cheese in order for the crust to be well-cooked. This pizza was brought to the United States (primarily New York) by Sicilian immigrants, and it was derived from sfincione.

Nowadays, Sicilian-style pizza is popular in numerous Italian-American communities in New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE NEW YORK SICILIAN PIZZA

Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees F. 

Coat an 11-by-17-inch rimmed baking sheet with 3 tablespoons olive oil. Add the dough and stretch it to fit the baking sheet. Brush with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Loosely cover with plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature until puffy, about 2 hours.

Combine the tomatoes and their juices and the salt in a medium bowl and crush well until smooth. Uncover the dough and sprinkle with salt. 

Gently place the baking sheet in the oven (the dough might deflate if it is knocked). Bake until golden, about 20 minutes. 

Remove the crust from the oven, top with the sliced mozzarella and cover with 2 cups of the crushed tomatoes. Bake until the cheese is bubbling through the sauce and starts browning, 15 to 20 more minutes.
