"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Sprinkle yeast into warm water in a large mixing bowl (or food processor bowl) and let stand until dissolved. Beat in 1/4 c. butter, 2 tbsp. sugar, egg, lemon peel and salt. Gradually add enough four to make a soft dough. Beat well. Turn out dough onto floured board and knead until satiny and no longer sticky. Place in a greased bowl and butter top of dough lightly. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size. Punch dough down and turn out onto floured board. Knead lightly. Roll out into a 15-inch circle and place in a greased 14-inch pizza pan or on a baking sheet. Form a rim around the edge. Spread with remaining 1/4 c. soft butter and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 c. sugar. Let stand in a warm place 20 mins. Bake in a 500 F oven 6 mins. or until golden brown. Serve at once, hot, cut into pie-shaped wedges. Accompany with vanilla-flavored whipped cream and fresh berries or sliced peaches.
