Four Italian Pizzas from David Rocco In the pizza episode of David Rocco’s Dolce Vita, David proves that authentic Italian pizza can be much more than a simple Margherita pie. In his three variations on a basic pie, David incorporates such ingredients as potatoes, onions and chile peppers, and smoked cheese with pork sausage.
They take a little time to clean, but the crisp, slightly acidic flavor of fresh artichokes is worth the time. Finish cooking the pasta with the sauce so the fettuccine absorbs the tomato, lemon and artichoke flavors.
Rich and nutty Parmigano Reggiano needs little adornment; David Rocco simply dresses penne with Italian cream cheese, Parmigano and butter for an Italian take on an American favorite: macaroni and cheese.
