The joy of biting into a pizza comes to you in a handy snacky form! Here, we present the Pizza Puff, an innovative recipe of deep-fried bread stuffed with a scrumptious mixture of veggies and cheese, perked up with ketchup and herbs. The use of ingredients like capsicum, black olives and chilli flakes gives the snack a typically pizza-like texture and taste. Drain the oil on absorbent paper and serve the Pizza Puffs fresh, as the cheese might get chewy if allowed to cool for too long.
