Sicilian Pizza is a thick crust or deep dish pizza, originated in Sicily, Italy.The main difference between Sicilian pizza and Italian pizza is in the crust. Italian or Italian-American pizza usually has a thin crust which can be either crispy or chewy. Sicilian pizza has a very thick crust. It’s more bread-like than Italian pizza. In Italian pizza, the emphasis is on the toppings such as sauce, cheese and pepperoni. With Sicilian pizza, the crust is king.

Italian pizza usually has a coating of sauce, cheese, vegetables, meats or other toppings. Sicilian pizza is often made without cheese using whatever is left over in the kitchen for toppings. The oldest type of Sicilian pizza is sfincione, which means “thick sponge.” It’s made with only herbs and olive oil.

Sicilian pizza, when it does use cheese, uses Sicilian-made cheeses like pecorino. Mozzarella is an Italian cheese. Modern Sicilian pizza chefs will use mozzarella, even in Sicily. Cheese can be baked into the dough or is placed directly on top of the dough before any spices, sauces or whatever.( information courtesy of Google)
