Fry Bake

This is essentially fried pizza dough - and if that isn't a good idea, I don't know what is. The fry bake is so puffy that you can split it open like a pita and fill it with things like my Carribean Pigeon Pea Curry, which is what I did. --AnglophileLV

Caribbean Fry Bake – makes 4

2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4ths cups water* (Knead dough for a few minutes)
Vegetable oil for frying (enough to just cover the fry bake dough)
flour for dusting

1. Divide dough into tennis ball size dough balls. Dust your counter, hands and rolling pin with flour and roll them out into 6 inch diameter circles.
2. Heat the oil in a deep pan and place the dough circle so it flops away from you (otherwise you could get spattered with hot oil).
3. When the upturned side gets puffy and the bottom side is slightly gold, use a fork try to flip it to the other side in a quick motion. Continue flipping until both sides are a nice golden brown color.
4. Take it from the oil at this point and place on paper towels to get rid of some of the excess oil.
5. Sprinkle with garlic salt.

Repeat these steps for the remaining dough you have.
