13 x 9 pan – greased and flour pan very well on bottom, inner corners and up sides.

Crust Ingredients:

3 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup Crisco
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
3 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup water (more or less as needed)

Filling Ingredients:

All meats should be purchased in solid chunks as you will be dicing them into 1/2" to 1/4" pieces.

12 eggs

3/4 tsp. of coarsely ground or cracked multi colored peppercorns
2 sticks of dry sausage-sopressata (remove casing)
1 stick of pepperoni (remove casing)

Preparation for Crust:

Combine all ingredients to make dough, (don't work too hard to avoid making it tough) Line pan completely, gently pressing into the bottom, the corners and up the sides. Note: crust should be thicker than for a regular pie.

Preparation for Filling:
