The Eric Andre Show, our eponymous host's LSD-soaked nightmare talkshow, has created some of the most maddeningly subversive comedy of the decade. None have captured the imagination of the internet, however, quite like the pizza ball. A gnarled sphere of everyone's favorite cheesy flatbread, the pizza ball (not unlike the show itself) is probably best enjoyed under the influence of something.
Prepared pizza dough (homemade or store bought)
Flour (for work surface)
Mozzarella cheese, cubed
Parmesan cheese (the powdered kind in the jar)
Red pepper flakes
Start by rolling out your pizza dough on a liberally floured work surface. Cut into 1 inch squares.
Add some pepperoni and one cube of mozzarella cheese to the square of dough. Wrap each corner up and around the mozzarella clockwise, being sure to pinch all gaps closed.
In a cast iron skillet, heat 1 inch of vegetable oil to 350°F and add your pizza balls. Flip and fry for about 5 minutes until they are deeply golden brown.
In a separate bowl combine: parmesan cheese, a few healthy dashes of oregano, and red pepper flakes.
Remove pizza balls from the cast iron and toss them in the parmesan mixture.
Serve with a side of warm marinara sauce and enjoy!
