Italian cuisine has developed through centuries of social and political changes, with roots stretching to antiquity.  Italian cuisine is simple and a number of dishes having only four to eight ingredients.  They rely mostly on the quality of ingredients rather than elaborate preparation.
Noteworthy changes in Italian cuisine happened with the discovery of the New World and the introduction of potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers and maize, which are now an integral part of this cuisine.  Italian cuisine is known for its regional diversity each with a distinct taste.  This cuisine today is probably one of the most popular in the world.

Ingredients for Pizza Pasties Recipe

  • Refined Flour 1 1/2 cups

  • Pizza Sauce 1 1/2 teaspoons

  • Sugar 1 teaspoon

  • Salt to taste

  • Olive oil 1 teaspoon

  • Pizza sauce 1/2 cup

  • Mozzarella cheese grated 200 grams

  • Green olives chopped 10-12

  • Black olives chopped 10-12

  • Fresh basil leaves torn 15-20

  • Salt to taste

  • Red chilli flakes 2 teaspoons

  • Dried oregano 1 teaspoon

  • Oil for deep-frying


Step 1

Mix yeast with ¼ cup warm water and sugar in a bowl and set aside till frothy. Place the refined flour in a deep bowl, add yeast mixture. Add salt and oil and mix well. Add approximately half a cup of water and knead into a soft dough.

Step 2

Cover the dough with a damp cloth and leave to rest in a warm place for about forty-five minutes, or until the dough is approximately double in size. Knead the dough again, cover with a damp cloth, and leave to stand for ten to fifteen minutes.

Step 3

Divide the dough into twelve equal portions and roll each into a 4 inch diameter round. Spread a little pizza sauce in the centre of each round leaving sufficient space all around.

Step 4

Top it with little mozzarella cheese, green and black olives, fresh basil leaves, salt, red chilli flakes and dried oregano. Continue doing the same with the remaining portions of dough.

Step 5

Brush the edges of the dough rounds with little water, then fold and press together to seal the edges. Heat sufficient oil in a kadai and deep fry the pizza pasties till golden brown in colour.

Step 6

Drain on absorbent paper and serve hot.
