  • 1 ¼ lb all-purpose flour
  • ½ oz fresh yeast
  • 1 potato , boiled and sieved
  • ½ lb water
  • 1 lb canned tomatoes
  • ⅝ lb mozzarella cheese
  • salt and pepper


Make dough with flour, yeast, salt (if you like you can add a potato) and water.

Allow to rise for about 2 hours.

Meanwhile, cut the peeled tomatoes, squeeze them and leave to drain in a colander.

Dice mozzarella (best if mature); once the tomatoes have drained, add the diced mozzarella and season with salt and pepper.

Roll out the dough into disks of about 8 inches in diameter and 0.2 inch thick.

Stuff each disk with a generous dollop of tomato-mozzarella mixture, then fold into crescents and seal using a wavy-edged wheel cutter or folding the edges together.

Deep-fry in abundant olive oil turning often to prevent them from becoming too dark.
