Pizza Di Pasqua, Italian Easter Cheese Bread

The Pizza di Pasqua is a beloved Easter specialty originating from the picturesque Umbria region in central Italy.

The recipe makes pure magic out of the simplest Italian ingredients with generous helpings of Parmigiano Reggiano, Pecorino Romano, and extra virgin olive oil giving the cake its signature savory flavor.
