A zippula (plural: zippuli; also spelled zeplee and zippuile) is a fried dough made to a recipe from Calabria, Italy. Zippuli are made with flour, water, yeast, boiled potatoes, and a pinch of salt.[1] There are many variations: often anchovies are added, but cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, or spicy 'nduja sausage may also be added.[2]
