Pizza Dough Gnocchi

We got the idea for these impromptu gnocchi from our Home Cooking community discussion board. All you need is half a pound of pizza dough, a pot of boiling salted water, and a sauce (marinara is perfect). Enlist your kids to help with the shaping, then let them watch you poaching the dough and tossing it in the sauce.

What to buy: Premade pizza dough is available bagged in 14- or 16-ounce portions at well-stocked groceries. If you’d like to make your own, you’ll need about a third of our Basic Pizza Dough recipe.

This recipe was featured as part of our Beyond Pepperoni: 6 Amazing Pizza-Dough Transformations project.

Instructions

  1. 1Tear the pizza dough into little balls, each about the size of 2 garbanzo beans.
  2. 2Roll each dough ball between your palms to make 1-1/4-inch-long gnocchi, slightly tapered at the ends.
  3. 3Boil the gnocchi in a large pot of salted water until they puff and rise to the surface, about 5 minutes.
  4. 4Drain, toss with hot marinara sauce, and top with Parmesan.
