“Oozy, melty, cheesy dough balls, dunked into a big steaming bowl of your favourite soup, is there anything more comforting on a cold Winter day? We use two types of mozzarella for extra flavour and stretch, but you can supplement for your favourite cheese from the deli counter.”

  1. Pre-heat your oven to its hottest setting, and lightly flour your worksurface with semolina flour (which adds a lovely crunch to your dough balls).
  2. Divide each dough ball into eight roughly equal pieces so you have 16 small pieces of dough in total. Taking each piece one at a time, flatten to a rough circle (you can use a rolling pin if needed, or just flatten with your hands) until its approx. 5cm wide.
  3. Place two mozzarella balls in the centre, then add ½ tablespoon of grated mozzarella, and gather the edges of the dough around the filling, pinching as you go until you have a ball shape. Roll the dough ball between your palms a few times until you have a ball shape.
  4. Repeat with the rest of the dough balls. Sprinkle semolina (or regular plain flour) into an oven proof baking dish, then place your doughballs into it, starting with one in the centre, then circles around the outside. They will rise in the oven, so place them so they’re touching, but not too tightly.
  5. Brush with the oil then move to the hot oven and bake for 20-25 mins until the dough balls have turned a golden brown.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 mins as the cheese will be very hot. Serve, dunk and relax!
