READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Make a smooth dough out of the dough ingredients. Use as much flour as needed to keep dough light without it sticking to your hands.
  • Leave the dough to rest for 30 minutes.
  • Prepare the filling. Grate the mozzarella and then mix with the cream cheese. Add the egg and butter and process into a smooth, glutinous mixture using either a hand mixer or a wooden spoon.
  • Season with salt, if needed, and divide into 4 balls.
  • Shape the dough into 4 balls also and roll these out to form 8 inch circles.
  • Put the cheese filling balls into each dough circle and bring the edges of the dough circle up and over to seal. ( an omelet or a calzone) Press firmly to seal.
  • Carefully press the dough flat into a circular shape until each will fill a large skillet.
  • Fry individually in hot butter, covered, before turning them and frying the other side, uncovered.
  • Cut each flat loaf into 4 portions and serve hot.
