What’s for dinner? Cheesy Pizza Sticks

Kids love finger foods! OK, OK, so do grown-ups!

It was pizza night the other night and I decided to try something new. It was getting late and I wasn’t in the mood to make a big meal.

Here’s what I made:

Cheesy Pizza Sticks

Cheesy Pizza Sticks

Ingredients:

1 tube of refrigerated pizza dough

10 mozzarella stringable cheese

40 slices of pizza pepperoni

Pizza sauce

2 Tbsp butter

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp dried basil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 deg.

Open the tube of pizza dough and roll it out to 1/8″ thick and cut it into 10 equal pieces.

Place 4 slices of pepperoni on each piece of dough. Top with a cheese string. Squeeze a line of pizza sauce on top.

Stretch the dough over the stack and seal the edges with your fingers.

Place the rolls on the prepared baking sheet.

Melt the butter, add garlic powder and basil, and stir to combine. Brush the tops of each roll with the butter mixture.

Place the baking sheet into the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Remove from oven, let cool for a couple minutes, serve and enjoy!

* you can use any toppings that you like to fill these. Try Hawaiian, peppers, olives or mushrooms. Just make sure the pieces are cut small and they aren’t over-filled.
