Ingredients

  • 100 grams strong flour
  • 450 milliliters water (at room temperature)
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • 2 mozzarella cheese (balls)
  • fresh basil
  • oil (for brushing)
  • vegetable oil (for frying)

Directions

  1. Cut the mozzarella cheese balls to 1/2 centimeter thick slices and place them on paper towels for approximately 30 minutes at room temperature.
  2. Prepare the phyllo dough by combining the flour with the water, a pinch of salt, and the oil. Knead the dough vigorously for approximately 10 minutes.
  3. Let the dough rest for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into 2 parts and roll them out to two very thin sheets, they should be almost see-through.
  5. Cut disks out of the sheets of dough, the disks should be double the size of the mozzarella slices.
  6. Brush a disk with some oil and place one mozzarella slice, a pinch of salt, and a fresh basil leaf on the disk.
  7. Cover the disk with a second disk, seal the edges well.
  8. Repeat this procedure until all of the ingredients have been used.
  9. Refrigerate the disks for at least two hours.
  10. The disks can then be baked at 220C for 5 to 7 minutes or deep fried in hot vegetable oil, turning them over often, and for just a few minutes until golden.
  11. Drain them on paper towels to absorb the excess oil, season with salt and serve.
