– eggs – ricotta, drained – provolone – Pecorino Romano – ham – Napoli salami

In a food processor, pulse together the flour, salt, lard, and butter until it becomes like a meal. Next, add 1 egg at a time until combined.

While on high speed, slowly drizzle in 2 to 3 tablespoons of water just until the dough comes together.

Transfer the dough onto a clean surface dusted with flour and mold it together to form a disk. Cover in plastic wrap and chill it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

In the meantime, whisk together the eggs in a large bowl. Next, fold in the ricotta, provolone, Pecorino Romano, ham, salami, salt, and pepper until thoroughly combined. Set it aside.

Remove the dough from the refrigerator, place it on a clean surface dusted with flour, cut 1/3 of it off, and set it to the side.
