How to prepare the Neapolitan casatiello recipe in the air fryer

  1. First dissolve the yeast in the water together with a teaspoon of sugar. Then add the flour little by little, mixing with a wooden spoon. When it begins to take consistency, add the salt and lard. Finish working everything on the pastry board forming a ball .
  2. Let the dough rise until doubled by placing it in a bowl covered with cling film. We recommend using the oven with the light on.
  3. In the meantime you can prepare the other ingredients. Cook the eggs in plenty of water for 8 minutes after boiling, or prepare them in the air fryer (separately). Once cool, peel 2 and keep the others for decoration.
  4. Dice the provola, pecorino and salami and mix them in a bowl.
  5. Once risen, roll out the dough until it reaches half a centimeter thick and cut a strip along the long side (it will be used for decoration).
  6. Distribute all the cheeses, cured meats and hard-boiled eggs cut into pieces on the surface . Season with freshly ground pepper and roll up. Then join the two edges to form a donut.
  7. Place the hard-boiled eggs, pressing a little, and with the dough kept aside, form the characteristic cross on each egg. Alternatively you can leave the stuffed bread more rustic, without removing part of the dough and without making the cross on the eggs.
  8. Leave to rise directly in a pan suitable for the air fryer for about 1 hour.
  9. Cook 20-25 minutes at 140°C and then 10 minutes at 200°C , transferring it directly into the fryer basket. Let it cool before serving.
