People in Partinico love this sfincione, the Sicilian version of a fat focaccia in which a topping of cheese and crunchy bread crumbs plays against tangy anchovies and a sweet tomato sauce. It’s spicy and filling, a treat for a picnic or a midday meal, the rustic Sicilian equivalent of a thick pizza with everything on top. You could even cut it in small squares to serve as part of an antipasto.
