Every year my aunt made what she called Easter Pizza. I have heard it called Meat Pie also. I know it contains basket cheese and ham or sausage and the crust is brushed with egg yolk then baked. Does anyone have a recipe or know where to get it for Easter?

    It's more like a deep dish pie right? The one I know from growing up was like that. Usually small Italian groceries will sell them around Easter. Try calling Cellini's or Varallo's. If they're not making it, they may know where you can get it.

      It's also called pizza piena and pizza gain.
