This recipe is very good. In response to what to do with the oil. The best thing to keep used oil fresh is to peel a small potato and cut up like French fries and fry while oil is still hot. You can even do this after frying fish and it will take out the fish taste. Promise. It will make your oil fresh and less expensive if you do this after each deep frying.

Regarding the used oil from frying the doughnut bites. You can use the oil over and over. Strain out any crumbs and store in the fridge. When it is not usable anymore I put mine in a can and place it in the freezer. When garbage collection day comes I put the can in a zip lock baggie and place it in the outside garbage can for collection. No chance for it to spill and make a real mess. Hope the suggestion helps.

I've often seen these from biscuits or rolls. Is there any major difference using the pizza dough or do they all taste about the same and it's just a matter of using what you have on hand?

I've made these donuts using biscuits since my kids were small some 30+ years ago. And in addition to the cinnamon and sugar coating, I also coat them using powdered sugar in a brown paper bag or dip half of a donut in chocolate frosting. Yumm. Just like Dunkin Donuts.

Back in the 60's at Blue Bird camp we used a large crisco can on the stove to cook the donuts. I'm sure they are not as healthy but it sure worked well. Best cleaner1

My now 2 year old grandson just loves donut holes. When I saw this recipe I thought I'd try it. Well, he just loved them but I used crescent rolls instead of the classic pizza crust as one member suggested. I strongly recommend this recipe!

PS I haven't tried to make donuts from pizza dough but I will. Biscuits work good, too.

Happywholesome, I let mine cool, put in a covered container and store it in the fridge for another time. It could be strained to keep out little stuff but this hasn't been a problem for me. Fast food restaurants don't use new oil everyday. Once it starts looking yucky, I put it in used cans (also kept in the fridge) and throw it in the trash when the can is full. Do the same with bacon grease. Hope that helps.

I have a question about the left over oil that is dirty(used). What do you do with that after frying anything? I don't think you pour it down the drain while running very hot water. The thing that my Nana said is she used to put it in an old metal coffee can and then throw it in the trash, but know there plastic so I can't do that. HELP!!

I'm not sure how these would taste with pizza dough, my Mom made them for us in the 60's-how I looked forward to them! I now make them for my 2 granddaughters. I hope that the tradition lives on!
