Pizza Churros
Recipe type: Main dish
Cuisine: American
Commonly served as a sweet street side snack or dessert, churros are a favorite treat. We put a savory spin on them with cheesy pizza flavors, fried till golden brown so they're slightly molten inside. Dipped in your favorite pizza sauce they're a great appetizer!
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1½ cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion granules
  • 1¼ cups plain flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • Oil for frying
  • Marinara Sauce
  1. Heat oil to 190ºC (375ºF).
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine water and butter until just starting to melt and simmering. Add all of the spices and stir to dissolve and bring to a simmer.
  3. Add flour all at once. Stir until the dough pulls away from the sides of the pan and forms a ball. Remove from heat and let cool for 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in eggs one at a time until fully combined then add the cheese.
  5. Using a star-tip in a piping bag, pipe about 3-4-inch long churros. Fry until golden brown.
  6. Serve with marinara sauce to dip. Enjoy!
