Aunt Theresa


1/4 c. oil
2 eggs
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
2 cups warm water
2 pkgs. dry yeast
6-7 c. flour

1/4 lb. pepperoni
14 lb. salami
1/4 lb. capricola
1/4 lb. Canadian bacon
1/2 lb. baked ham
1/2 lb. ricotta
1/2 lb. swiss cheese
4 beaten eggs
4 hard-boiled eggs
Egg whites for brushing top crust

Use the dough recipe above for your pie, or use store-bought if you choose. You'll need two crusts: One for the bottom and one for the top.

Mix the 4 eggs and ricotta until well blended.

Form your crust in the pan, then layer the meats, cheese, sliced hard-boiled eggs and the ricotta mix to fill the pie. Cover with top layer of crust. Make slices in the crust for steam to escape.

Bake in 350 oven for 30 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush the top of pie with egg white. Return to oven for 2 additional minutes.

Let cool, and enjoy!

Personal Notes:
Aunt Theresa normally just buys a pound of the meats and makes however many pies she can.
