Sicily's Tomato Pie.

Sfincione is a thick Sicilian pizza, or more precisely a focaccia bread, topped with tomatoes, onions, anchovies and grated cheese, seasoned with wild oregano. Outside Italy, "Sicilian pizza" is used to describe all kinds of things, but until the 19th century, Sfincione (loosely translated as "thick sponge") was the kind of pizza usually consumed on the streets of western Sicily.
