Pizza Frizza


Turn this plain pizza dough into a sweet Italian-inspired treat. If you've got kids, this is a great way to get them involved in cooking by letting them shape the pizza dough themselves. From the book "Lucinda's Rustic Italian Kitchen," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Wiley).

  1. Take a handful of dough and break it into small pieces. Drop the dough into hot oil and cook until golden brown, flipping if necessary.

    These were easy and delicious to make! I did not coat them with too much sugar though. My boys gobbled them up! Responding to NWKelli--I just heated the oil on medium and dropped a small piece of dough in..once it rose and started to sizzle then I dropped the rest in

    I made these doughnuts and I have to say that I was dissapointed. The dough was hard and it calls for 2 teaspoons of salt which is to much salt for a doughnut recipe. They had an awful taste. I wind up throwing them out.

    Can anyone who has made this recommend a temperature for the oil?

    This is so easy and very yummy! Don't want to eat too many. I used pizza dough from the tube and it worked out good.

    I would use Canola oil for this recipe; usually a good bet. You want to choose an oil that won't burn at high temperatures -- peanut oil is among the best. This recipe looks easy and yummy! I think I'll try it this weekend!

    Umm, what's frying oil? I know what it is, but what should I use? Canola oil, vegetable oil, etc., ?
