Sicilian Pizza Dough Recipe

Sicilian pizza dough has its toppings baked directly into the crust. An authentic recipe uses neither cheese nor anchovies. Pizza Hut's Sicilian Pizza, introduced in 1994, is not an authentic example of the style as only garlic, basil, and oregano are mixed into the crust.
