This recipe comes from my childhood, my grandmother, who passed away over 25 years ago used to make this, and I still remember the recipe.
2 lbs dough (you can buy pizza dough in most supermarkets)
1 lb sausage, sweet or hot
1/2 lb shredded mozzarella or grated cheese
few tablespoons olive oil
pepper to your liking
First, roll the dough out with a rolling pin, pretty thin. Rub the olive oil, leaving just the top edge dry. Cover with raw sausage. In this picture it looks like pepperoni, but this is link sausage squeezed out and spread out over the dough. Sprinkle with cheese and pepper.
Cut into sections, about 4 inches long, and press between your hands (end to end, don’t squeeze out the filling.)
Cook at 350F for about 30 minutes until browned. If you don’t eat sausage for whatever reason, you can substitute ground beef, turkey, or other filling. This is a fun recipe for the kids to help with and to tinker with the filling. Enjoy! Note – when I tried to confirm the spelling of this dish, I couldn’t find anything close. The recipe itself is called ‘bogliolati’ on other recipe sites, but my family never heard of that dish. Different parts of the country I suppose.
