Pizza Fritta literally means "fried pizza" in Italian.  So I ask the question, "how do you make pizza better?" The answer being, "Fry it!"

These come from the area of Naples, where they are considered a street food.  

People always ask me what the best thing I've ever eaten is.  Well, this is truly one of the best things I've ever eaten.  I highly recommend not trying this, because it will become addictive!!  

Pizza Fritta

First make my dough and sauce found here

When the dough has risen and the sauce is made, heat up about 1 inch of olive oil in a pan on medium high.  Using your hands form a little round with your pizza dough about 4 inches in diameter.  Carefully(!) place the dough in the pan and fry till golden on each side.  It only takes about 30 seconds on each side (depending on how hot your oil is)

Remove and place on the plate.  Put one slice of fresh mozzarella down, then a spoonful of tomato sauce and top with some parmesan and fresh basil.

Eat warm!  This tasty treat may be the best thing you've ever had, I promise!
