                                       MAIZE PIZZA

Production area
The whole region

Methods of manufacturing
The raw materials are: maize flour, salt, extra virgin olive oil, hot water. Pizza with maize is the basic recipe for different typical dishes of Molise as well as the “mbaniccia” of Ferrazzano, “Fruffella” of Bonefro, “Pizza e minestra”, “Ri fallarielli”.
Knead maize flour in a container, adding oil, salt and hot water until obtaining a soft and homogenous kneading. Take a “coppa” and after forming a three-finger-high pizza, make it rounded. Traditionally, a cross is marked in the middle. Lay the pizza on a stratum of leaves well lined up on a cap or on the “traville” and let it slide softly on the hot, sleek part of the fireplace. Cover the pizza with the “coppa” and consumed embers. Cook it for about one hour.
It is produced all year.

Materials and tools
Fireplace, “coppa” (large overturned pan), vine or chestnut leaves.
