Maybe 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 (or 2.d4 cxd4 3.Nf3 g6) 2...g6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Bc4 Nf6 5.e5 d5 is the way.
Just don't try it with the bishop already on g7, e.g. 4...Bg7 5.c3 Nf6? 6.e5 +/-. After 4...Nf6 the engine prefers white following 5.Qxd4, but this can't worry black who was willing to allow 4.Qxd4.

Ok so I give the Morra the accelerated treatment by
1.e4 c5 2.d4 cxd 3.c3  Bg7 4.cxd d5.  Essentially making it an Alapin.

However when white delays the recapture on d4 what then?

For example 1.e4 c5 2. d4 cxd 3. Nf3 g6  4. Bc4 Bg7 5.c3 what then?   Can black still play d5?
