Pagnotta or Vastidduni Bread From Sicily

Pagnotta, or “vastidduni” in Sicilian, is a typical homemade bread. This one was made by my cousin Francesca. (It was delicious!) When I asked her how she learned to make it, she said, “I’ve always known!” Her recipe is simple: flour, oil, salt, pepper, oregano, and sometimes anchovies; the hard part is the kneading and shaping of the dough: this requires an inherent instinct and love.
