A panzerotto is a traditional food from Puglia (IT). It looks like a half-moon-shaped pocket of dough filled with savory or sweet ingredients. It is then wrapped and delicately fried until golden or baked. During this process, the panzerotto rises, creating a pocket of hot filling, ready to be eaten bite after bite. Its name comes from the word “panza,” used to refer to the rounded shape. Belonging to the “cucina povera,” the panzerotto was originally made at home by women and enjoyed all together with the family. - Buon appetito!
