Southern Fried Pizza





I hate left over pizza. Reheating in the oven takes too long and microwaving it just makes the crust hard. Knowing this I decided to try something a little different. Being southern born and raised I instantly thought of deep frying! Now before you turn your nose up to it... Give it a try.

Step 1: Gathering Ingrediants

I can't give exact amounts because you are making a batter, and well I've never measured anything that I put into a batter so these are approximations.

What you will need:

Left over pizza
1&1/2Cups Milk
2 Eggs
1&1/4 Cups Flour
Salt & Pepper (to Taste)
Garlic Powder (optional)
Red Pepper Flakes (also optional)
Cooking oil (for frying)
Large Skillet or Deep Fryer
Medium to large bowl for mixing
Tongs or Fork

Step 2: Lets Throw Down in the Kitchen!

Step1: Preheat grease in large skillet (or set deep fryer) to 360 - 375 Degrees

Step2: Batter up! combine eggs, milk and spices in a medium to large bowl. Stir in flour a small amount at a time until well blended. Your not making a dough so don't add too much flour. (You may not need the entire amount.) Ideally the batter should be thick sort up like pudding, well not quite as thick...

You're now ready to fry some pizza!

Step 3: Gettin' Hot in Here!

Let me start by issuing this warning.

Hot grease is EXTREMELY Dangerous. Speaking as a Firefighter, I've seen several instances where "Grease Fires" have ended in a large loss of personal property. Never leave a working stove or fryer unattended.

Now on to the fun!

Battering the pizza: Take 1slice of pizza, place it into the batter mixture and coat well. Don't worry if you can faintly see the tops of some of the thicker toppings through the batter, it'll turn out fine.

Frying: Take the freshly battered slice and very carefully slide it into the preheated grease. Be sure not to splash the grease, as this will hurt you and potentially start a fire...
Cook for 4 to 5 minutes. The batter should be crispy and golden brown when done. Renove from grease and place on a paper towel to drain.

Serving: I suggest serving "southern Style Fried Pizza" with a side of marinara, pizza sauce, or ranch dressing.

    Yes, I think I would give up five years of being in a wheelchair and crapping in a bag to start eating that on a regular basis.

    Deep fried bacon tastes just like regular bacon. I used to work at a restaurant and on Sunday morning breakfast we'd deep fry all of our bacon (it was faster).

    Texas State Fair FoodTexas State Fair in Dallas and the Houston Rodeo both sell chicken-fried bacon. I've had it, its so good it makes you hurt, and I do mean hurt, seriously I thought I felt my heart slow down after eating it.

    This sounds awesome and delicious though I have a question. Does the pizza has to be cold when you fry it or can it come straight from a hot pizza box you just ordered?

    You only live once, might as well do it right!

    Bomb idea, I deep fry falafel all the time, might have to do this with leftover pizza, though certainly not Dominoes, BLECH!

    Chain pizza = bad! Support local businesses!

    I dunno, SOMETIMES I'd rather get a $10 large pizza than have to pay $5 for a slice...
