Ok. I’ll confess. I am a self-taught and not all that sophisticated cook. One thing I appreciate about the Cooking with Dorie group is that I am making things I have never even heard of, let alone made. This is one of those recipes. For starters, the finished product does not resemble any pizza that I have ever had. However, the instructions and the recipe seem so fool-proof that even I was able to make it with reasonable success. The crust is simple and the filling is easy and both are tasty. The only issue was not knowing a way to test to see if it was fully baked. My rustic was runny and I am not sure if that was because I didn’t bake it long enough or if it was because I didn’t let it cool completely before serving. In any case, my runny rustic pizza was tasty and enjoyed by all!
