Recipe of the Week: Pizza Stuffed Breadsticks

Add some excitement to a classic with these pizza stuffed breadsticks from Spoon Fork Bacon. Stuffed with pepperoni, tomato sauce, Italian herbs and mozarella, these tasty snack-size bites are perfect for parties and entertaining. Baked to perfection they can be enjoyed within minutes with your favourite dip.

Makes 12

16 ounces of pizza dough
1 cup of tomato sauce
1 cup of mozzarella
1/4 cup of grated Parmesan, plus more for sprinkling
4 ounces of sliced pepperoni
1 tablespoon of minced oregano

Italian herb seasoning

Preheat oven to 425˚F.

Lightly flour a clean surface and roll dough out to a 12”x18” rectangle. Lightly drizzle the surface of the dough with tomato sauce and evenly spread onto a thin layer. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella and Parmesan on only half of the dough and top the cheese with pepperoni.

Top pepperoni with the remaining cheese and minced oregano and carefully fold the half of the dough with just tomato sauce on top of the other half of the dough. Firmly press the open sides with the back of a fork to seal the sides shut.

Cut the dough into long sticks and carefully transfer onto a baking sheet, gently twisting each stick as you transfer them. Top each stuffed breadstick with extra Parmesan and Italian herbs and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and the cheese is bubbling out of the sides.

Allow breadsticks to cool, about 10 minutes. Serve with a side of tomato sauce, ranch dressing or garlic butter.
