Panzerotti Baresi

meat deep fried dough pockets

Panzerotti are super tasty deep fried stuffed mini-pizzas. Together with  Focaccia Barese they are the most popular dishes from Bari (my husband's native city). They can be stuffed with a great variety of fillings, like mozarella and tomatoes, ham, minced meat... no metter what filling you use - they are always DELICIOUS! One is never enough :-)  Here is the recipe of panzerotti with minced meat filling. Bon appetit :-)
