Leftover Pizza Corn Dogs
  1. Microwave each slice of pizza on high for 30 seconds, until the cheese is bubbling.
  2. Leave to cool slightly (just enough that you don’t burn yourself) then wrap around each hot dog.
  3. Leave these to cool and set. When they’ve set stick some sturdy skewers through the hot dogs.
  4. Make the batter by whisking together the cornmeal, flour and other dry ingredients. When thoroughly combined add the eggs, milk and water. Pour the batter into a relatively narrow, high vessel – a pint glass or small vase would work really well. It needs to be deep enough to dip the whole pizza wrapped hot dog in.
  5. Preheat the oil to 170°C/380°F.
  6. Dip each pizza hot dog in the batter, then hold it carefully by the stick and submerge it in the oil.
  7. Keep it held underneath the surface until the batter has puffed up, then remove and leave to dry on some kitchen paper.
  8. Serve with ketchup and mustard.
