Pizza fritta

What is better than pizza? Fried pizza. In Naples, you can grab one of these portable personal pies from the frigitorie (fried food stalls) around town. Via Pignasecca and Via dei Tribunali are two famous destinations for such treats. I Decumani on Via dei Tribunali does especially outstanding pizza fritta.

    my family is from Abruzzo. My non,nonna and zia made pizza fritta for us kids allthe time. my family pronounced it Pitza Frita..dialect. here is adifferent spin..make it as a seving with your breakfast. instead of powdered sugar, put a little olive oil/or melted butter. some salt and eat with your eggs on friday morning. Also my cousin use to put warm strawberry jam. like i mentioned a different style but really good. buon appetito
