Mix the flour, salt and yeast in a bowl. Add the water and oil, knead to form a soft, smooth dough. Cover the dough and leave to rise at room temperature for approx. 1½ hrs. until doubled in size.

To deep fry

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to approx. 5 mm thick, sprinkle with fleur de sel. Cut the dough into approx. 20 equal diamonds. Fill a pot to ⅓ with oil and heat it to approx. 170°C. Place the pieces of dough in the oil in batches using a slotted spoon, fry for approx. 3 mins. on each side. Remove and drain on paper towels.

To serve

Mix the tomatoes, oregano and oil, season with salt, plate up the gnocco fritto with the cured ham and olives.

Good to know
Note: Traditionally, lard is used instead of oil in the dough and for frying.
Tip: The cured ham can be complemented or replaced by mortadella, coppa, salami or cheese.
