To prepare these pancakes with mozzarella cheese and saffron, which are a tribute to Abruzzo and its splendid Navelli saffron you first need to chop finely with a mixer or with a knife the mozzarella.
Once the mozzarella is well chopped you have to put it in a large bowl (the mixture will rise later!) and add the flour, two tablespoons of olive oil, a pinch of salt and saffron with the bewer's yeast (which previously were dissolved in a little bit of warm water. Cover and let rise at room temperature for about two hours (if it is winter and cold weather put to rise close to a heat source).
After this time the mixture has more than doubled its volume, then with a spoon make pancakes that are fried in hot oil. When you put the pancakes in frying, since they have a very light texture, order not to break it is recommended not to turn them, but brown them on one side only, so that when they are removed from the oil, they are golden brown on one side and white streamers on the opposite side ... delicious! Let them drain on paper towels, put a pinch of salt and eat them hot! They are a great appetizer!
