Since 1960, The Villa has been selling Pizze Frittes at the New York State Fair. In fact, Pizze Frittes are the ONLY thing they sell. Every night you can see people lined up 20, 30 or more deep to get some Pizze Frittes. So, what is a Pizze Fritte? Well, it’s fried dough…sort of. It’s a sugary snack…again, sort of. Here, this how The Villa explains it:

Heres the secret to the success of the Pizze Fritte.

Pizze Frittes are so popular they make them as fast as they sell which means they are always nice and hot and D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! Just ask my nephew.

    Oh, Scott, just looking at the photos probably increased my cholesterol 10 points. That looks like the same stuff we make Elephant Ears out of. Do you have those, too? This year our Petoskey Stone Festival had deep-fried pickles and deep-fried oreos. I do not have photos. I was afraid to go to the Festival. I am beginning to fear that my county has a collective death wish.

    • Yeah, PIzze Frittes are not the healthest of snacks but it’s only once a year I tell myself. At the Fair, they deep fry ANYTHING. The big new deep fried craze this year was peanut butter and jelly. Think of a jelly donut with peanut butter deep fried. People loved them as the vendor sold thousands.

    Oh Yum! I haven’t ever had Pizze Frittes; however, I surely would love to have some. I have had fried dough as in funnel cake and Indian fry bread (I’ve made this). 2-ft! Your nephew definitely looks like he is enjoying a 2-foot Pizze Fritte. 🙂
