Fugazza is a delicious foccacia-like pizza popular in South America. Fugazza has a soft airy crust, perfect for soaking up olive oil, and does not have tomato sauce or much cheese. Fugazza is most often topped with sweet cooked onions. Fugazza is easy to make. The dough is just pressed into the pan - no need to roll it out. The onions are sautéed in olive oil to soften and sweeten them. Artichoke hearts, olives (black and green), pimento, thinly sliced ham, herbs, parmesan are frequent additional toppings. Use a pizza stone or a perforated pizza pan if you have them, but a regular baking sheet will work fine.

The traditional way to prepare Polish pecan cookies -- ciastka kruche z orzechami -- is by enveloping a pecan half in the fragile dough. My family took a shortcut by adding ground pecans to the dough and forming it into crescent shapes. They usually were made only at Christmas becaue they were time consuming and pecans were (and still are!) so expensive, thus we called them "Christmas crescents." I've taken a further shortcut by scooping the dough and tamping it down. The crescents have become full moons! They are similar to Russian tea cakes, snowballs and Mexican wedding cookies.
