With premade pizza dough, these fritters come together in less than an hour. Served warm, they’re the perfect after-school snack for special occasions, or as a donut alternative for an otherwise boring brunch.
What to buy: We designed these around premade pizza dough, available bagged in 14- or 16-ounce portions at well-stocked groceries. If you’d like to make your own, you’ll need two-thirds of our Basic Pizza Dough recipe.
Special equipment: You’ll need a candy/fat thermometer for frying.
Game plan: When deep-frying the fritters, make sure the oil stays at a constant temperature, adjusting your stove’s heat as necessary.
