Pizza Fritta (Fried Pizza Dough)

“When I was very young my Italian Great Grandmother use to give us this treat (I guess to shut us up) while she was cooking. Now this calls for a sprinkle of sugar… BUT the beauty is you can fill them with sauce, mozzarella, meat, whatever you like. This is also great with any left over/unused pizza dough”
