18 Sep Teach a lesson on pizza and panzerotti!
Panzerotti originated in central and southern Italy, especially in Apulia. They are small versions of the calzone or closed pizza, but produced with a softer dough. The most common fillings are tomato and mozzarella, but spinach, mushrooms and ham are often used.
Another filling is onions stir fried in olive oil and seasoned with salted anchovies and capers, a seasoning that, mixed with bread, is also used in Apulia for stuffed bell peppers.
In the city of Molfetta located in the Bari province of the Puglia region, frittelle (sometimes spelt frittelli) is used as another name for panzerotti
