I wanted to try an experiment for a fried pizza and also make a submission to this months challenge of “Not Round”. I decided to take a small dough ball and cut it in half and I just made a circle and pinched the dough together. Then the doughs were stretched a little and cut with a scissors.
The first fried pizza I made I fried a little longer on both sides and used a stainless steel spoon to depress the dough in the middle while frying until the dough set. After the frying the dough it was drained on paper towels then dressed on my cutter pan and baked on the pizza stone until the sauce became hot and the cheese melted. The second pizza turned out a little better because I didn’t fry it as long. My daughter ate the first fried pizza and thought it tasted great. I ate the second fried pizza.
The dressings used on the fried pizzas were Les’s sweet sauce, two blends of mozzarella, a little white cheddar, fried sausage, cut Capicolla, homemade ricotta (that I learned how to make from Craig’s thread), and fresh thyme and stick oregano that Larry sent me.
I really liked the fried and baked pizza.
I guess I didn’t hold my camera steady when taking the crumb shot, so that picture is a little blurry.
