Made this for dinner the other night and it was so good, just like the cheesy bread sticks that you get at the pizza place. The recipe is from a blog called Lauren’s Latest. (Thanks to my husband Bob for helping me figure out how to put up a link to all these blogs that I’ve been getting recipes from!) She made homemade pizza dough which I’ll give you the recipe for but I just used the pizza dough from WinCo.
Basic Pizza Dough
1 cup warm water
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 tablespoon honey or sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
3 cups bread flour (give or take 1/2 cup)
1 In a large mixing bowl, stir yeast and honey into warm water. Let sit for 5 – 10 minutes or until bubbles form and mixture starts to foam. Pour in salt, oil and half the flour and mix.
2 Once flour is incorporated, start adding remaining flour bit by bit until you get dough to a consistency that is slightly tacky but when you touch it, it does not stick to your hands.
3 Turn mixer on high and knead for 6 minutes. Dough should be smooth and easy to work with and bowl should be clean.
4 Lightly grease bowl and dough, cover with plastic wrap and let rise 1 – 2 hours.
Yields about 1 pound of dough, enough for two 12″ pizzas
Cheesy Garlic Bread Sticks
1/2 recipe Basic Pizza Dough
2 tablespoons softened butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 pound grated mozzarella cheese
1 Preheat oven to 500 with pizza stone inside. (My oven runs pretty hot so I had to turn it down to 450.)
2 Mix butter and garlic in small bowl.
3 Spread dough into a 12″ circle on parchment paper.
4 Spread butter and garlic mixture over dough and top with cheeses.
5 Bake 9 – 10 minutes or until bubbly and golden. Remove from oven and let sit 1 -2 minutes before slicing.
