Deep Fried Pizza Pop Recipe
Would you Deep Fry a Pizza Pop?
Crispy and Cheezy Goodness
I recently got myself a deep fryer, and let me tell you I love it. I have done considerable amounts of frying in the deep fryer and am always surprised at the versatility of things you can fry.
Deep fried foods are bad for you, that's what "they" always say, but is this true? To an exent yes, and pizza pops are always going to be bad for you, deep frying them is not going to make that better. However deep fried food gets a bad rep for no real good reason. In fact deep fried foods are often lower in fats than pan fried or other methods of cooking, the reason for this is the high heat creates a crispy barrier from more oil getting absorbed.
Believe it or not I found that deep fried pizza pops less greesy tasting than microwaved or baked. The dough when deep fried is crispy and the filling is nice and gooey, just what a pizza pop should be.
