This recipe comes from Pizzeria Starita, a Neapolitan institution where pizzaioli have been sliding pies into the wood-fired oven since 1901. A creamy béchamel binds the fritter filling, which is then chilled to make it easier to cut before it is battered and fried.

  • 5


  1. Melt butter in a 1-qt. saucepan over medium-high. Add ½ cup flour and cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Add cream and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook until thickened, 4–5 minute
