Canadian Fontina is based on an Italian cheese with a long history. Its yellow-ivory body is soft but elastic with a nutty, sweet, faintly fruity flavour.

Divide dough into 4 pieces; shape each into ball. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes.

Roll each ball into rope; cut each into 8 pieces. Roll each into ball. Press each ball into about 2-inch (5 cm) circle; place 2 pieces salami, 1 square pepper and 1 cube cheese in centre. Fold dough over filling to make half-moon shape; pinch edge together. Roll and crimp edge to seal.

In deep heavy-bottomed saucepan or deep fryer, add enough oil to come 1-1/2 inches (4 cm) up side; heat over medium heat until oil registers 335°F (170°C) on deep-fryer thermometer.

Fry panzerotti, in batches, turning to brown all over, until evenly golden, 4 to 5 minutes per batch. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
