Sweet Fried Dough

Ed’s parents had us over for homemade grilled pizzas last night.  There was some dough left over, so Ed’s mom told us about how her mom used up extra dough when she was a kid.  She’d form little tiny pizzas, then pan fry them in a little bit of oil, then sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar.  We brought some of the extra dough home, and I tried it out this morning.  They were really good!

  1. Yum! We’ve done this, too, and your brothers LOVE them!

    What were the grilled pizzas like? Sounds great!

  2. As they say waste not want not. What a good way to use up dough. I eat so much of it raw I would never have much left over. But that is just me. I love pie dough, too. I do put butter, and cinnamon sugar on that and bake the left over bits and pieces.

  3. I may have to make a lot of pizza dough next month and try this! Yummy!

  4. Bad, bad idea. That’s all I’ve got to say!😀

  5. Ooh! I’ll have to try that. It sounds wonderful!

  6. I love fried bread, as the local Native- americans call it! when I worked in the school sistrict, one of our cooks would make fried bread and cocoa in the cold cold mornings- It was a welcoming treat when I was half frozen to death from doing my outside duties!

  7. That sounds like a Beaver Tail, a popular Canadian pastry. It never occurred to me to try it at home, though. Thanks for the suggestion!

  8. How wonderful! What a tasty way to use up leftovers.🙂

  9. Those are sooo good! I grew up with them being known as “pizza fritte” (of course not knowing what “fritte” meant). Now I want one!

  10. Oh, please send some my way right now. YUM.
