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.

      This is a good article except for the reason that deep fried foods contain less fat. The actual reason is that the water in the food turns to vapour and is expelled out of the food repelling the oil. When there is no water left in the food then the oil stops crackling. If you cook it longer than that then the oil will actually be absorbed into the food making it greasy, regardless of the crispness of the dough.

      Pizza81 you can defrost it for slightly faster cook time, however it tends to leak a bit if you do that, so I do indeed suggest frying it straight from frozen.
