From the kitchen of Diomira Putano. Aunt Diomira came to
America, from Italy, as a teenager. This is not the typical
American pizza. It's topped with grated Romano instead of
mozzarella. Use Aunt Diomira's Pizza Sauce.

five or six days later you're hungry again."
This dough makes a thick crust. The edges are golden & crisp from all of that
oil. The center is amazing and soft.
