    Phil Smith's Note:

    When I was very young my Italian Great Grandmother use to give us this treat (I guess to shut us up) while she was cooking. Now this calls for a sprinkle of sugar… BUT the beauty is you can fill them with sauce, mozzarella, meat, whatever you like. This is also great with any left over/unused pizza dough

      My mother was born in Italy and used to make this for our family and our friends. After cutting of a piece of the raised dough, Mom would stretch it out. A little practice may be required before you can stretch it without tearing it. This makes the dough cook better and raises it as it cooks. Try it, you will like it.

      We grew up with the same thing, she used to deep fry little bite size pieces and serve with butter, and homemade chicken soup. Great meals. I love the deep fried dough taste, same as calzones, they must be deep fried, or I don't even like them.
