  • 680 grams store-bought bread dough
  • 3 tablespoons (45 milliliters) olive oil, divided, plus more for greasing
  • 1 cup (240 milliliters) ricotta, drained
  • 226 grams soppressata
  • 226 grams capocollo
  • 1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) rosemary leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 milliliters) fresh ground pepper
  • 1 cup (240 milliliters) shredded caciocavallo cheese (or substitute with mozzarella)

Top dough with soppressata, capocollo, and rosemary. Sprinkle pepper on top. Evenly distribute caciocavallo on top. Top with second half of dough. Pinch sides of dough together.
  3. Pierce top with fork. Pour remaining olive oil evenly over top.
