PITTA ‘MPOGLIATA Typical Calabrian Sweet.
The pitta ‘mpogliata is a typical Calabrian dessert, very popular in the province of Cosenza.
It is a dessert prepared, in much of Calabria, on the occasion of the Christmas holidays.
It contains simple and poor ingredients and during the Christmas period it was consumed in place of the famous panettone that was once not known in the regions of southern Italy.
The dessert is also identified with the name of pitta ‘nchiusa or pitta’ mpiglita.
It is made up of pastry sheets that enclose the filling and similar spirals of roses are formed, grouped in the center and surrounded by a last sheet of dough that holds them together until cooked and then spread with honey to leave them soft and tasty.
The name derives from the Hebrew and Arabic pita, which means flattened.
