"Pizzagaina is Italian Easter pie. A very traditional savory dish that is a much-anticipated treat for Easter. It can be quite an undertaking to prepare, but I've got a simplified recipe here that the Italian Nonnis may curse me for but tastes great!"

unbaked 9-inch pie crusts, divided
2 (16 ounce) containers
whole-milk ricotta cheese
shredded mozzarella cheese
sweet capicola (coppa)
hot capicola (coppa)
egg white, slightly beaten
Made this Easter morning, instead of the hams, I used a pound of fresh Italian sausage, pan fried and crumbled first. No leftovers here!
Simple and delicious! I only made 1 pie, so I halved all the ingredients, which worked out great. I'm used to having/making this w. bread dough, so I wasn't sure about using pie crust, but I was pleasantly surprised. I will be using this recipe again and again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
