    Ingredients:

     

    • 65 Grams All Purpose Flour (2/3 Cup)
    • 35 Grams Whole Wheat Flour (1/3 Cup)
    • 2 Grams Kosher Salt (1/2 tsp.)
    • 66 Grams Warm Water-120°f (1/4 Cup + 2 tsp.)
    • 2 Grams Instant Yeast (1/2 tsp.)
    • 2 Grams Sugar (1/2 tsp.)
    • As Needed Canola Oil for Greasing bowl and frying
    • As Needed All Purpose Flour to help stretch
    • As Needed Your Favorite Tomato Sauce-hot
    • As Needed Parmesan Cheese-freshly grated

     

     Instructions:

     

    • Whisk together the flour and salt. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the warm water, instant yeast and sugar.
    • Add the flour mixture all at once to the water.
    • Quickly mix, gather into a ball and knead for about 5 minutes or until very smooth and elastic. Form into a tight ball.
    • Place the dough in a bowl that has been greased , lightly grease the top of the dough, cover with plastic wrap and place in a slightly warm place for about 30 minutes or until the dough doubles in size.
    •  Heat about 1” canola oil in a pan that will allow an 8” piece of dough to fit. An electric frying pan is ideal. Heat to 350 °f.
    • Sprinkle your counter work surface with a little flour. Carefully lay out the risen dough on the flour and flatten into a thinner, 8” circle. Carefully pick up the dough and add to the hot oil, splashing away from you.
    • Let fry for about 2 minutes on each side, pressing down with a slotted spoon as bubbles develop. Cook until a deep golden brown on each side. Carefully remove and drain.
    • While still hot, cover the top with Parmesan, arrange the sliced tomatoes on top, add the basil and drizzle the reserved garlic olive oil over the tomatoes. Cut into wedges or enjoy as is.
