Food Friday Panzerotti

Labels: , ,


I have been itching to make panzerotti, fried pizza dough filled with cheese and tomatoes or ham, since the day I saw a travel show where people were eating them on the street in Italy, can't remember the city. They're like calzone but much smaller in size, and they are fried not baked. They're easy to make with store-bought pizza dough.

These are 5 inch thin dough rounds filled with cheese mixed with chopped tomatoes and pepperoni. The rounds are folded and sealed just like empanada then fried in hot oil until golden brown. They have to be eaten right away as they don't stay crispy.

Those look really good! I can just imagine how this'll work with different toppings (well, more like fillings!); mozzarella and mixed mushrooms - yum!
