My Neapolitan family's recipe includes pepperoni, ham, rice, romano cheese, ricotta, raisins and eggs. It is savoury, with a touch of sweetness from the raisins at the same time. It is served in small slices at room temperature, as an appetizer or a mid-day snack.

Google Pizza Rustica Recipe and you will find many articles and recipes on the subject. One version uses Wheat Berries, and I think that my grandparents substituted rice when they emmigrated to US. Can't figure out why the raisins, but it's not Easter Pie in our family without them.

Buona Pasqua!
