Pizza Fritte:


  1. For the dough: Mix together the flour, salt, oil, yeast and 4 1/3 cups room temperature water in a stand mixer for 25 to 30 minutes. Turn out into a large bowl and let rise 4 to 6 hours.
  2. For the pizza fritte: Stretch out one 10-ounce piece of dough (save the remainder for another use). Place ricotta in center, then salami on top, followed by olives, sauce and mozzarella. Fold over dough to make a pocket and close. Seal shut.
  3. Preheat some oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F. Fry the pizza, turning to make sure both sides cook evenly, until golden and heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Place on a plate and top with sauce, basil and Parmesan.
