Pizza Nissa Socca, the missing recipe

hi emu48. based on the topping ingredients listed in your recipe, i believe this is the pizza recipe i have used for years. i too have lost my recipe and need the recipe for the pizza. although the recipe was called pizza nissa socca, the dough portion of the recipe was not actually a socca dough- it was a basic yeast dough made in the food processor. i am hoping you have the recipe for the dough still and will post it. otherwise, i will keep searching for my lost copy, but i bet my husband accidentally threw it away- wouldn't be the first time. :(

Strawberry Whipped Cream Cake

oh no! sorry you had a disaster- i have never made this cake, but had posted a question about the instructions a long time ago. it is a shame when you go to all the effort to make something and it doesn't work out right. i don't know if your party is over or not, but maybe you could layer the cake with the whipped cream and strawberries and serve it like or trifle or you could run to the store and purchase an angel food cake or pound cake as a substitute for the cake portion of the recipe. i hope you are able to figure something out.

Seeking the REAL "Brooklyn Style" Cannoli Recipe

don't know if original poster will ever see this response since the thread is old... but if trying to duplicate an elusive italian flavor, one might try an italian flavoring called fiori di sicilia. i use it to flavor pizzelle and it could be used to flavor either the cannoli dough or the filling as well. it can be found online or in italian grocery stores. happy baking!
