I really have no idea why I wanted to make this pizza so badly. I think I liked the name, ''Victory Pig''. It was very tasty and I will be making it again...and again.
Victory Pig is one of the unique pizza tastes in a region where great pizza is everywhere. The nearby town of Old Forge, PA bills itself as the "pizza capital of the world" simply because they have more pizza restaurants per capita than anywhere else in the world. The high percentage of sicilian families over the years has resulted in many families serving their family's pizza at their restaurant and bar and there are many of them up & down the main street of the town. The family that started the Victory Pig restaurant has been so successful that the restaurant is only open 3 evenings a week, wednesdays, fridays, & saturdays.
Victory Pig is so unique that those of us who grew up with it and moved elsewhere spend their lives trying to get it or figuring out how to make it themselves. I'm in the latter category and now that I know how, I can take that flavor with me wherever I go. I have given the recipe to friends & relatives all over the country and it seems to be universally loved. Everyone who has made it is amazed at how easy it really is and how simple the flavor profile of the pizza is.
This forum was a huge help to me in determining the recipe and I love to spread it around so for everyone who has made it, keep baking and above all.......enjoy!!!
