From insider, my way of seeing rustic pizza perfectly reflects the definition of “rustic”” of our Italian vocabulary. Unfortunately on the net, even in very established sites, pizza rustica is associated with the recipes that they have nothing of rustic.

You can not call something rustic pizza made with puff pastry instead of pizza dough, and that has as ingredients ricotta and spinach, all this has nothing to rustic, instead it should be called “delicate cake” or something similar.
