Pitoni Messinesi (also called Pidoni) are one of the many typical street foods of the city of Messina. The filling of curly escarole, cheese and anchovies is considered the ‘traditional’ one, but it is now common to find them on sale with different fillings like:

  1. From Sinagra: endive, fresh tomatoes cut into cubes or tomato sauce, fresh pecorino cheese (primo sale), or mozzarella or ricotta cheese. Let the ricotta release as much water as possible before using it in the filling. If you like, add 1 anchovy.
  2. Chicory, cherry tomatoes, primo sale cheese, salt and anchovy.
  3. Ham, cheese and tomato sauce
  4. Salami, cheese and tomato sauce

The day after, take the pan off the fridge and let it reach room temperature with the time needed. When the dough has reached room temperature, separate in 100gr portions.
