Pizzette Fritte


For 1 Person(s)

For the Dough:

  • 2 pounds all purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 cups lukewarm water
  • 1 ounce fresh yeast
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • marinara sauce or fresh tomatoes, chopped
  • fresh mozzarella
  • capers
  • fresh basil
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • oil fro frying


  1. In a large bowl add the flour and make a hole at the center.
  2. In the hole add the warm water. Add the yeast  to the water and let the yeast melt.
  3. Add to the water 1  Tbs of salt and 4 Tbs of olive oil.
  4. Mix the entire content until the dough is well mixed and of even consistency. If you have a stand mixer, use it as it will speed up the process.
  5. Put the bowl of doght in a warm place and let it rise for about 2 hours.
  6. Take the dough, roll small balls of dough about the size of a little larger than a golf ball and set them on a tray. Roll all the balls.
  7. Cover the tray and let the dough rise again for about 1 hour.
  8. Make your frying oil hot.
  9. Take each ball of dough, spread it this with the center being flatter than the borders. With a fork puncture the inside of the border to prevent the center from raising during the frying process as you want the pizzette to be a little higher on the border and flat at the center.
  10. Fry the pizzette on both sides until they have a golden color. As they are frying, if you notice that the center is swelling, push the center down with a spoon.
  11. Fry all the Pizzette.
  12. Pre-heat the oven to 450F.
  13. Take each pizzetta and add a teaspoon of marinara sauce.  Add some fresh mozzarella, a few capers, some oregano and a sprinkle of olive oil.
  14. Bake the pizzette for 5 minutes until the mozzarella has melted.
