Stuffed-crust pizza might seem like a very American phenomenon, but it's a classic in Naples - just done a bit differently. Creamy ricotta is bundled into the points of this star-shaped pizza, giving it not only a striking visual shape but a seriously delicious bite of crust.

This pizza might look complicated, but it’s very easy to make, and even better to eat. If you like the basil leaves to remain bright green, top the pizza with the leaves once it’s out of the oven... or do both!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a small skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sausage, breaking it up with a spoon and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the passata and the salt.
  3. Preheat the oven to 500°F. Set an oven rack in the lower third of the oven. On a lightly floured sheet of parchment paper, roll or pat the dough out to a 14-inch round. With a pizza cutter or a knife, make 8 evenly spaced 1 3/4-inch cuts from the edge towards the center of the dough. Lift the dough on the parchment onto the flip side of a large rimmed baking sheet or onto a large rimless cookie sheet.
  4. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the ricotta onto the dough in between each of the 8 cuts. Lift the corners of one section of dough together over the ricotta and pinch together to seal, making a point. Repeat with the 7 other cuts.
  5. Drizzle the center of the pizza base with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and top with the pecorino and tomato. Scatter the mozzarella, sausage, and basil leaves over the tomato. Brush the points of the star with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and bake until the crust is browned in parts and the underside is crisp, 12-15 minutes.
