Default Fried Pizza

Alfredo sent me this link from the NY Times. It's under the minimalist section. Try a fried pizza for a light and crisp crust.

Now I have to build an outdoor fryer?

Neat video, I might have to try it out, but I would of stuck the pizza under the broiler for a minute or two.

How's that oven coming along James?

Hey Dave,

I coated the outside with four bags of Refmix on Monday to catch all the little cracks -- so hopefully that's it. I am going to re-cure starting today, and we are cooking pizza for neighbors this weekend, so it's going to be ready one way or another. My mason got pulled over the working on the house, but we we'll start the enclosure pretty soon.

I'll let you know how it cooks, without insulation and without a vent. :-)
James

Wow, a recipe that fuzes (Native American) Indian Fry Bread with Italian pizza toppings. I was expecting a slice of (normal) pizza dipped in batter and deep fried. I'm pleasantly surprised!

You can get that here in TX along with fried ice cream, fried twinkies, fried snickers, and fried diet coke.

OK, the others I understand - they are mostly carny food in SoCal. But, how do you deep fry diet Coke?

At first I was grossed out by the thought. I thought of deep fried pizza ( no Thank You!). But I think the idea of using a good quality frypan or Dutch oven may be good idea. I think it may be worth an experiment or two...

An well oiled iron skillet gives very good results.

But the skillet needs to be preheated for at least 10-15 minutes and then a good amount of oil poured in it.
Followed by dough and toppings.

Makes a crunchy, oily, deep dish pizza.

I've had success in the oven doing this.

I may have to try it in my WFO.
