Deep Fried Pizza 'Donuts'

Yields: 4


  • Deep Fried Pizza Dough
  • Deep Fried Pizza Filling


  • Flour your work surface thoroughly. ( i use a large cutting board)
  • With floured hands, grab a “golf ball sized” amount of dough and flatten it is about 1/8 inch thick. The flattened dough should be about the diameter of a softball. Sprinkle on more flour if needed to keep from sticking.
  • Spread 1 TBSP or so of pizza sauce in the center of the dough. Make sure to leave a lip of unsauced dough around the outer edge so you will be able to seal the ball without any mess.
  • In a small bowl (or in your hand), smash together 1/4 cup Shredded cheese, 2 TBSP bacon, 2 TBSP pepperoni, then form them into a ball.
  • Place cheese ball in the center of the dough and fold one side of the dough on top of the Ball.
  • In a circular motion fold up all the sides of the dough until it is completely covering the cheese ball
  • Lightly press the folds together to seal the dough together.
  • Place in freezer for at least 1 hour
  • Cook in oil on medium/high heat until golden brown
  • Place on paper plate to remove excess grease before serving
