Cheesy Garlic Bread

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.
