- 1 can Pillsbury regular pizza crust (see note)
- vegetable oil for frying
- powdered sugar for dusting
Roll the dough out to a 7 x 8-inch rectangle and cut it into 16 squares.
Add oil to pot being used for frying, about 2 inches deep. After oil is heated, drop in a few of the squares. Let squares cook a few minutes on each side, until both sides are golden.
Remove finished beignets and place onto a plate lined with paper towels to soak up excess oil. Repeat with remaining dough until all beignets are cooked. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
- You can also use Pillsbury biscuit dough.
