6 Bring to a simmer and add basil leaves. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
7 In a deep fryer, heat 4 cups (1 L) of canola oil to 350 F (180 C).
8 Lightly flour the dough. cut each of the 4 balls of dough into 4 pieces. Flatten with hands or with a rolling pin to about 1/8-inch in thickness.
9 Place each piece, one at a time into the hot oil. Fry each side until golden brown in color, about 2 minutes per side. Remove and drain on paper towels.
10 Top each pizza with tomato sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
