Tomato sauce, eggplant, olive oil – all baked in a wood-fired oven, then topped with freshly grated ricotta salata (salty).
Direct from our neighborhood pizzeria -Via Va!

Did you ever think of eggplant back in the States? The Sicilians are definitely obsessed and they have influenced me. I feel like we are going to be the crazy eggplant people when we go back to the States. btw. I put a link to your site up on my site… prepare for literally 10s of people flowing your way every year.
LOL – 10s of people. i’m adding you to my blogroll now if I hadn’t done it previously, i have put off those tinkering tasks until FY13 and as of Monday, it will have arrived!!!
I love eggplant, it is so diverse! stir fry ready, creamy when baked, crispy edges pan-fried and thin, grilled is divine, the perfect flavor combo with the tomato and basil, even onion and pepper, mmmmm…and I just got done eating seafood… i had never had it with ricotta salata before coming to Sicilia, that is the piece de la resistance…er, or however you’d say that in Sicilian or Italian
Looks good. Is that the same place as the calzones?
It is delicious! We can have it while you’re here.
miss pizza. miss melanze. i have had american pizza a few times and i’ve had to tell myself that it’s not real pizza….it exists only in Sicila and in Napoli…yum.
I thought you were calling me “Miss Pizza” for a moment…and I liked it.
