PIZZA FRITTA 


The English translation of Pizza Fritta is Fried Dough. This a a treat you usually can get at a street carnival, a faire, an outdoor art show or something of that nature. It is deceptively simple to make. In an Italian household, it's a treat, something you whip up in a flash when people get the "hungries".  It would be of the same nature as popcorn. Something you whip up for a snack while watching football or a movie or to nosh on out on the patio while the kiddies are on the swing set.

The only ingredients you'll need are a tube of PILLSBURY CRUSTY FRENCH LOAF from the dairy section of your supermarket, a bit of oil for frying, and granulated sugar for sprinkling.




Put about 1/2 cup of granulated sugar into a brown lunch size paper bag and set aside. I let the bread dough come to room temperature before cracking open the tube. I lay the dough out on a flour sprinkled counter. Heat 3-4 tbs. of bland oil (canola or vegetable) on medium heat. Cut off a small portion (1" to 1.5") of the bread dough with the kitchen shears. I roll out that piece with the rolling pin, then I stretch it with my hands until it is stretched as much as possible without tearing. Immediately fry it on both sides, in the oil. You want to see a golden brown color and the dough bubble up.  Drain on paper towel for a couple minutes. Then shake it in the brown paper, sugar filled lunch bag. Remove and set on a serving dish until all the dough is used up in the fashion. 




I got one dozen pizza fritta from one tube of French Loaf.

It's messy and addictive, therefore, very wise to eat outdoors. I guarantee your children and grandchildren will have special memories of this treat and often request it when they come for a visit.........

Note: If the oil in your fry pan begins to have burnt flour sediment,  change pans and use fresh oil. Always being careful not to burn.

Looks great. Do you think it would be good with some cinnamon in with the sugar?
