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).

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., ?
