The recipe of the stocking of the salty Befana it is a fantastic variant a little faster, but always tasty and in this case also with a decidedly captivating shape, to prepare the escarole pizza. Obviously, even if I have chosen this filling, it does not necessarily mean that you have to choose it too: you can in fact opt ​​for the filling that convinces you the most, for example by choosing ingredients more congenial to children or simply those you have at home to consume.
Similarly, the recipe can be used at other times of the year simply by varying the final shape of your cute escarole pizza: you can change it from the befana's stocking to a star, Santa's hat, Easter bunny, or even leave the classic round shape if you prefer. A basin and good epiphany;)


How to make the stocking of the salty Befana

Clean and wash the escarole, then let it dry for a couple of minutes in a pot with a little water and the lid.

Drain it well and cut it into pieces.
Prepare a sauté with garlic, oil and the chopped anchovy fillets. When the anchovies have dissolved in the oil, add the escarole.
Let the escarole flavor for about ten minutes, then add the olives cut in half and the capers and let the water dry well.
Finally, season with salt and pepper and let it cool.

Overlap the 2 sheets of shortcrust pastry keeping them separated with a sheet of parchment paper so that they do not stick together, then draw your sock with a pointed blade.
Set aside the scraps of pasta, separate the two sheets of brisée and stuff one of the two socks, leaving 1-2 cm free along the edges: arrange the escarole on top, then add the cheese in pieces.

Gently take the second sheet of dough and cover the filling, pressing lightly to let the air out.
Then seal the edges well with the tines of a fork.
Beat the egg in a small bowl and brush the sock. Use the leftover paste to decorate the sock, brush the decorations as well and add the poppy seeds to taste.

Recipe of the salty Calza della Befana, for a "finger food" Epiphany

There is little time left for lunch atepiphany and you don't know which appetizer to kick off the dances of the last post-Christmas holiday? Simple, to honor tradition, the Salted Epiphany stocking is for you. It requires only very few ingredients, and the preparation times are very short, just ten minutes, for a course that is beautiful to look at and good to taste!

Ingredients (for 6 people)

  • 2 rolls of shortcrust pastry or puff pastry
  • 120g of cooked ham
  • 1 yolk (or water) for brushing


Start by carving the figure of a stocking of the Befana on the shortcrust pastry or puff pastry, and brush the edges with yolk or water. In the center of the pasta, arrange in an orderly manner, filling the empty spaces, the slices of cooked ham. After having also shaped the second layer of shortcrust pastry, taking care to obtain the same shape as the first sheet, and spread it on the pan, where the first layer is also located.

Now carve the edges, as if you were preparing maxi lozenges, obtaining strips of just under a centimeter to be rolled up on themselves. Refrigerate for thirty minutes, then brush the rest of the yolk on the surface. Cook at 200 ° in the medium-low part for about twenty minutes. Once ready, serve your salted Befana stocking and enjoy your meal!

(For the filling you can be as creative as you see fit. Not only cooked ham, but also raw ham, salami or other cold cuts of your choice. You can also stuff the sock with smoked salmon, or grilled vegetables)

What to put in the stocking of the salty Befana

The Epiphany sock in version salty it is particular, perfect for those who do not love sweets, the perfect accessory for a gift that surprises. There are many ideas for filling the stocking, some simpler others a little more different to make. One of the best is definitely the pizza rose, perfect for making the it fits greedy, to make it you just need some pizza dough, roll it out and cut thin strips, spread the tomato purée and mozzarella. Roll up the dough and form small roses to bake. In a few minutes the rose will be ready to be packaged and put inside the sock. Also very interesting panzerotti little ones, both baked and fried, to bring a little surprise in the socks. In fact, the filling can be as varied as possible. Perfect solution even the meatballs, or better bun, to be wrapped inside the plastic food bags. The sock in this way will have a very particular flavor and even more interesting and beautiful.

First, take the two rolls of shortcrust pastry and arrange them one on top of the other. I advise you to leave its parchment paper, so when you go to cut them, they don't stick together.

Now, delicately engrave the shape of a sock, starting from the top. Divide the two parts, so as to obtain two socks.

On one side, lay the slices of cooked ham and the grated mozzarella.
(You can use any cheese you like).

Overlap the other sock, sticking the edges well.

With the leftover dough, create strips and place them on the top of the sock.
With another longer strip, create the sock hook.
Finally, with the tines of a fork, seal the edges well.

Place it on a baking sheet with parchment paper and cook it in a preheated oven at 180 ° for about 10 minutes.

Before enjoying it, let it cool for a few minutes.
