Shakshuka pizza is my favorite Israeli-Italian-American mash-up. If the combination sounds weird, just think of shakshuka as a spiced tomato sauce, which makes it perfect to spread on top of some store-bought pizza dough. Served as a cheesy deep-dish pizza with runny eggs on top, this dish is comfort food at its best and perfect as a weeknight dinner. If you don't have a cast-iron pan for this, you can also use a square or round cake pan.
Comfort food varies from person to person, family to family, region to region. As the author of Modern Jewish Baker and editor of The Nosher, Shannon Sarna has always wanted to tell the story of the Jewish people through food and continues to do so here in her latest book. Modern Jewish Comfort Food showcases recipes and variations that have shaped Jewish cuisine from around the world―including immigration waves from Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, New York City, and beyond.
