Corn and carrot fritters

I had one bit of pizza dough left over.

It was so cute and small - I couldn't bear to throw it out.

Enter the corn and carrot fritters.

I steamed some carrot and frozen corn and mixed it with a small amount of blue cheese dressing.

Then I spooned the filling into a small disk of pizza dough.

I folded over and sealed the dough - it ended up looking like a little ball.

I put about 2" of oil into a small sauce pan. I put the pan on medium high heat. 

When the oil came up to temperature (when a tiny bit of flour instantly bubbles when dropped in the oil), I gently dropped in the dough. I rolled them in the oil so they browned evenly. Then I drained them on paper towels.

These were incredibly delicious - but I don't know many deep fried foods that aren't.

And, to my surprise, they weren't greasy at all.

These would make great appetizers - in fact, I think I will make them for the next party I attend.
