Pizza dolce di ricotta

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Flour
⅓ cup Sugar
½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Baking powder
8 tablespoons Cold unsalted butter
2 larges Eggs
1½ pounds Whole-milk ricotta
½ cup Sugar
4 larges Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 tablespoon Anisette
¼ cup Finely diced citron
1 teaspoon Cinnamon; divided



One 9 by 2-inch deep cake pan, buttered. Set a rack in the lowest level of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.

For the Pasta Frolla, mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. Rub butter in finely and stir in beaten eggs. Press dough together, wrap in plastic and refrigerate until firm.

For the Ricotta Filling, beat ricotta by hand until smooth. Stir in sugar, then eggs, one at a time. Stir in remaining ingredients, reserving half the cinnamon for the top of the Torta, being careful not to overmix.

To assemble, cut off ⅓ of the Pasta Frolla and reserve it. Roll the ⅔ of the dough into a 16-inch disk and line a buttered and paper-lined 9-inch cake pan with it. Allow the dough to hang over the edge of the mold. Pour in the Ricotta Filling and sprinkle it with the remaining ½ teaspoon cinnamon.

Roll the remaining ⅓ of the dough into a rectangle and cut it into 10 1-inch wide strips. Paint the strips with beaten egg. Moisten the rim of the dough on the pan with the beaten egg, and adhere 5 strips in each direction, forming a diagonal lattice. Trim away any excess dough even with the top of the pan and push the dough all around off the top rim of the pan so that it is completely within the pan.

Bake for about 45 minutes until light golden and puffed around the edges.

Cool in the pan before unmolding.
