These unique, Italian ricotta-filled pastries are made with layers of a very thinly rolled, flaky pasta dough instead of puff pastry. Unlike a fluffy croissant, the shell is delightfully crunchy and sturdy enough to hold all of that delicious filling.
“Pizze” means flat in Italian, and these flat, crisp waffle cookies make for great ice cream sandwiches. Alternatively, you can dip these treats in hot chocolate or coffee to satisfy your sweet tooth midday.
