Easter Neapolitan Cake - Recipe

I'm sharing a recipe for an Easter Neapolitan pie with sourdough and beer yeast. And since pork is not consumed by everyone, I suggest replacing the ingredients with other similar ones. Replace the fat with butter and the pork bacon with beef bacon. In the photo both pies are made with sourdough.

Prescription for sourdough

Dough ingredients:

200g of sourdough

500g flour

1 tsp. salt

250ml water

125g of melted pork fat (or butter)

Black pepper

Stuffing ingredients:

120g bacon

150g salami

250g provolone or other cheese

30g pecorino/parmesan or other hard cheese

4 eggs

  1. Start by mixing the sourdough with water (room temperature)
  2. Add the flour, salt and fat. Knead for 15/20 minutes.
  3. Then remove the dough for 12 hours. You can put it on a less cold shelf in the refrigerator or leave it at room temperature. Some people put it in an oven that is off. The pork fat slows down the soaking time, weighing down the consistency and the dough rises more slowly. The fat can be replaced with butter, but the dough may rise faster and the consistency will change slightly. The dough should increase by 2 or even 3 times.
  4. Cut all the ingredients for the filling into small pieces except for the Parmesan. Grate the Parmesan on a fine grater.
  5. Spread the dough with your hands into a rectangle shape and cover the entire surface with the filling.
  6. Wrap the dough and place the dough in a baking dish.
  7. Now take 4 raw eggs and decorate your pie.
  8. Put the dough away for another 8/9 hours.
  9. Preheat the oven to 160°( no ventilation)
  10. Coat the surface of the pie with fat and bake for 60min/70min.
  11. Allow to cool well and the pie is ready.

  6. Cut all the ingredients for the filling into small pieces except for the Parmesan. Grate the Parmesan on a fine grater.
