life-changing crispy fried pizzas

INGREDIENTS
  1. 1 package of pizza dough (we use DeLallo! it is THE best.)
  2. oil for frying (vegetable or canola is best)
  3. tomato sauce of choice
  4. fresh mozzarella cheese
  5. fresh basil and/or pesto
  6. red pepper flakes
  7. Parmesan cheese
  8. any other toppings you like

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Make the dough: Make the pizza dough according to package directions. Let the dough rise (for DeLallo pizza dough, the rise time is 45 minutes).
  • Shape the dough: Divide the pizza dough into 6 sections. Roll each into a ball and flatten into a pizza shape (mine were about 6-8 inches in diameter and about 1/2 inch thick around the outside).
  • Prep the oil: Heat a large cast iron skillet with oil (about 1 inch deep). Turn the heat to medium/low. Test the oil by dropping a speck of water in it – when it sizzles or bubbles, then the oil is ready.
