Fried Mozzarella Sandwich - Mozzarella in Carrozza

Straight from the southern Naples area, this tasty treat was born out of a need to use up leftovers from big Sunday lunches and family meals. We recommend using the freshest buffalo-milk mozzarella you can source.

In my continuing series of fried, scrumptious treats, I bring you another masterpiece:  literally translating to mozzarella in carriages, this recipe's name harkens back to when bread used was round, and looked like wagon wheels - the cheese looked like it was squashed between two wagon wheels.  And in keeping with the movement theme, these delectable treats will roll directly into your belly.

If you can get your hands on fresh buffalo-milk mozzarella, that's the best to use.  Otherwise, classic Italian fresh mozzarella will work too.  Your family is going to want to replace the classic grilled cheese lunch with a Mozzarella in Carrozza recipe meal!
