Tried Guy Fieriís Deep-Fried Pizza
« on: March 24, 2011, 08:56:21 PM »

For awhile I have been looking at this recipe from Guy Fieri to make deep-fried pizza.  I thought the deep-fried pizza would be interesting to try and I also thought the recipe was interesting, because it call for a high amount of ADY, sea salt, AP flour, sugar, and a high amount of olive oil.  It said in the recipe the dough should ready to be used in a little over an hour. First I rehydrated the ADY in warm water and then I mixed the dough by hand and the only thing I change from the recipe was I mixed the olive oil in last.  The dough was put into the oven with the light on for an hour, then punched down and left to rest for 10 minutes, then rolled out.  This dough reminded me of the other dough I tried for the    
Focaccia col Formaggio di Recco at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,13104.0.html  The dough today also was quite elastic when rolling it out.

The dressing were the same as Guy Fieri used except I used mostly Polly-O whole milk mozzarella with some mild white cheddar.  After making these deep-fried pizza, I think other dressings could be used inside other than what is listed in the recipe.

Guy Fieri says in the video that he likes Fair Food, just like I do, because I have fair blood in me too, from all the years my husband and I had stands at fairs and festivals.

If anyone is interested in the recipe it is at.  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/guy-fieri/crispy-deep-fried-pizza-recipe/index.html

The video is to make Guy Fieriís deep-fried pizza is at. 

This deep-fried pizza turned out very well and was easy to make. The crust was nice and crispy.  I did let a couple of skins thicker to see what would happen and they also turned out good. I think children would really like the Guy Fieri deep-fried pizza.  This was an easy recipe to make and the end results were good. It says in the recipe the dough can be frozen. A new quick way to make pizza for me.  Delicious fried fair food, is good in my opinion.  I also made fried Oreoís and Twinkies at one point in my life.

This recipe made 5 deep-fried pizzas and some leftover dough to fry.  The leftover dough fried was also good dipped in pizza sauce.

Looks good Norma.  I LOVE fried foods.  That pizza crust looks like it would make great fried pies as well.   Fried apple pie dusted with powdered cinnamon sugar?   :chef:

Chau,

I love fried foods too, but don't try to eat to much.  When I saw the deep-fried pizza recipe, I thought I had to give that a try.  Your idea to use the recipe with apples and powdered cinnamon sugar sounds great!  ;D  To think I was at the gym 2 1/2 hrs. this morning and then ate this tonight.   :-D

Yum!

Ron,

Thanks, I think most people would like Guy Fieri's deep-fried pizza.

Like you Norma, I try not to eat a whole lot of fried foods.  However, those puppies would certainly cause me to grab a few off the plate >:D.

Nice work...

Paul,

Thanks for your kind words!  :) Guyís recipe sure was fast and the results turned out better than I thought they would.  I had wondered when I looked at his recipe for the deep-fried pizza dough, why all that oil was needed, but I guess it helped to make the dough good, even if it was fried.  Wish I could have given you one to try.  At least then I wouldnít have been the only one eating the deep-fried pizza. >:D

Craig,

The deep-fried pizza was good.  :) The melted cheese just oozed out when cut. The crust had all the characteristics of something that is deep-fried.  It was crispy, crunchy, and had a taste of other foods that are deep-fried and still tasted like a pizza because it had the dressings of a pizza.  I donít think the dough alone without being deep-fried would have been that good.  The dough did have a yeasty smell though, from using all that ADY.  I wish I had a vent hood at market to try the deep-fried pizza for customers to see if they would like it, but I donít.  Different food stands at market do sell deep-fried foods. The one I like the best is the deep-fried veggies, but I only buy them about one time a year.

I wonder if you could take a slice of regular pizza, batter it with an egg batter, and fry it like a Monte Cristo? Dust it with some powdered sugar and serve with some raspberry preserves...

Craig,

Your idea to take a slice of regular pizza and batter it with egg batter, then fry it like a Monte Cristo does sound good to me.  :) Maybe you want to try that experiment. Your idea to dust with powdered sugar and serve with raspberry preserves sounds delicious! I did take my Preferment Lehmann dough many times and used it to deep-fry different kinds of concoctions, but never tried to deep-fry a slice with some kind of batter.   

There was an article on Slice yesterday after deep-fried pizza also.  It said the slice was deep-fried in Panko bread crumbs.  That deep-fried pizza was interesting, but the topping after the deep-fry didnít look too appetizing to me.

I'd love to try it, unfortunately I really don't have a good fryer for small-sized items. I'm also trying to loose some weight moment (the holidays were hard on me), so maybe not the best thing for me to be eating right now. Please let me know how it comes out if you decide to try it.

Craig,

If you want to try out your idea about frying a slice of pizza with egg batter, then deep-frying and then dusting with powdered sugar and serving with raspberry preserves, I will try it.  Do you just want me try out a piece of my preferment Lehmann dough for the experiment, or do you want me to first bake the dough then fry it?  I do have leftover frozen dough from market I could try.  I donít have any raspberry preserves, but I do have some low sugar strawberry preserves and also some orange marmalade.  I think the orange marmalade with go well with bacon.  Let me know what you want me to try.  I can do that experiment in the next few days if you want me to.

I was thinking that you could take any piece of cooked pizza you happend to have ready and batter and fry it. I think any good fruit preserves would be good. I'd love to see you try it. I think it would be something that you could sell if it comes out as good as it sounds. At least down here, they fry everything, and it all sells. I have not seen fried pizza though. Maybe it's the next thing?

Craig,

I had looked at different Fair Foods that were fried before, when I had my Funnel cake stand and I did make many fried food items.  I saw when looking awhile ago,  they did make fried pizza.  That is one reason I wanted to try Guy Fieriís deep-fried pizza.  If you or anyone is interested in seeing what they sell fried at the Indiana State Fair, this is the link to see the fried items.  http://www.state.in.us/portal/news_events/41011.htm and http://www.wthr.com/story/10805733/indiana-state-fair-offers-chocolate-covered-bacon-other-delights?redirected=true and http://www.dallasvoice.com/state-fair-fried-foods-duke-it-out-106731.html and http://spitzit.com/2010/10/03/2010-texas-state-fair-tour-of-fried-foods/   There are also other fairs that sell so many different fried foods, just like you said they do in Texas.  People really seem to like fried foods.

In the next week I will try your experiment out with baked pizza and also just taking the dough and dipping it in the batter.  I wonít be able to sell it at market though, because I donít have a vent for frying foods.  I did try ďpizza fritteĒ at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,9266.msg80138.html#msg80138 and fried Pizza men at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,11084.0.html  and finally at Reply 463 why I decided to try out a Pizzette after reading pizzanapoletana thread about them.
 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,9908.msg99680.html#msg99680 if anyone is interested in seeing them.

Ay Yo, waiting for Don From Mexico to tell us about a empanada. The Spanish know something about this.  Guy does not get to much respect in the world of Chefdom. But Anthony Bourdain does.

I think this was around 2000 when he had his first show. Scots and the deep fried slice. Absolutely horrid, but you are going to eat it....  ;D

At about 3:30 in. Battered pizza.

Enjoy.... :chef:

SinoChef,

Thanks for referencing Anthony Bourdain video with the deep-fried pizza.  :) I did enjoy the video. I enjoy watching all the foods that Bourdain tries, but never saw that video from Scotland.  I wonder how Craig wants me to go about deep-frying a slice of pizza since I watched that video.  ::)  Bourdain says the Scots only batter the cheese side.  I have also tried deep-fried candy when I had my Funnel Cake stand. Bourdain tried Mars bars, but I only tried Snickerís and Milky Ways.  There were good in my opinion batter fried. 

I also wonder about using  empanada shells.  I do make  empanadas sometimes and can imagine how good a pizza made inside of an empanada shell would taste.  I donít make my own empanada shells but buy Spanish frozen shells when I made the empanadas.  Maybe Don will come up with some more original ideas for a pizza in an empanada shell.  He is good at coming up with new inventions for pizza.  I have one of those pampered chef little things for making other things that can be deep-fried, but havenít used it for awhile.  It would make a little calzone.

Bill,

I wish the deep-fried pizza was more healthy too.  :) I would eat it more.  My daughter had shared some of the deep-fried pizza I made Thursday.  There one deep-fried pizza leftover last evening.  She put it in the oven on aluminum foil and said it tasted just like the evening I made them, so at least the deep-fried pizza can reheat well.  I would have taken a picture of the reheated deep-fried pizza but she said you arenít going to take another picture of pizza are you.  :-D

Personally, I'd say batter the whole thing - but we're kind of that way down here.

We'd call it "chicken fried pizza"
