Well, these disappeared before my eyes when I set my family loose on them.
Good thing I made them wait for me to take the picture.
The biggest trick is getting used to wrapping the hot tortillas very quickly so that you do not burn your fingers.
What You Will Need:
A fryer. I have a small home sized deep fryer that I use, but oil heated in a pan on the stove to medium heat will work as well. You will know that your oil is hot when you can flick water into it from your fingers and it sizzles. The oil is too hot if it smokes.
Tongs or a high temp spatula to get your tortillas in and out of the oil.
A large sheet pan covered in foil.
Paper towels on a cutting board.
Pizza sauce and Creamy Garlic sauce for dipping. Both can be made or store bought. Sever these heated with your Pizzaquitos.
Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes.
What to do:
Make sure that your oil is hot and that you have your tongs or spatula handy & a few paper towels stacked on your cutting board.
Fry your tortillas one at a time, then remove each one to the paper towels. If your oil is at a good temperature, this should take 30 seconds to one minute on each side.
Remove each tortilla when it is slightly browned on each side. Place it on the paper towel and place more paper towel on top of it. Press gently to soak up the excess oil. Then quickly sprinkle the tortilla with about two tbsp. of shredded mozzarella, and roll it into a tube.
You can use the paper towels to help do the rolling if the tortillas are still to hot for your fingers to handle.
When you have your tortilla rolled up, secure it with a toothpick, and place it on the baking sheet.
8oz of shredded cheese will fill about 12 Pizzaquitos. You can get a rhythm going of frying and rolling them and this will go rather quickly.
When you have all of your Pizzaquitos rolled, pre-heat your oven to 350.
Place the Pizzaquitos in the oven on the sheet when it is pre-heated, and bake for ten minutes.
Heat your sauces, and plate them with your pizzaquitos when they come out of the oven.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes & enjoy!
