Panino’s Montanara featuring Galbani® Fresh Mozzarella

Ingredients

10 oz. ball Neapolitan-style artisan Pizza Dough (for a 10” pie)
½ cup San Marzano Tomato Sauce
3 oz. Galbani Premio Mozzarella shreds or Galbani Fresh Mozzarella (a combination of the two is recommended)
1 tbsp. Grated Parmesan
1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  Fresh Basil (to garnish)
  Sprinkle of Sea Salt
  1. Stretch or roll out your pizza dough into a 10” round disc, leaving a 1” border all around as you would on a traditional pizza.
  2. Using your fingertips, make indentations in the center of the dough without disturbing the pizza border.
  3. Carefully drop the dough into a 350°F fryer, holding it down with a large metal spatula or strainer, and flip it until it turns golden-brown on both sides.
  4. Remove the dough from the fryer and drain the excess oil on paper.
  5. Place the fried pizza dough on a pizza tray and add tomato sauce, Mozzarella shreds and/or Fresh Mozzarella, grated Parmesan, fresh basil, olive oil and sea salt.
  6. Bake in an oven at 600°F or hotter until the cheese melts and the edges are slightly charred.
