Preparation & Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. If pizza baking stone is unavailable, line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  2. On baking stone, roll out dough into 10x6-inch rectangle. Brush butter evenly over dough. Sprinkle cheese evenly over butter.

  3. Using pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut dough crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Twist each strip tightly, being careful to keep most of cheese inside; place on baking stone. If desired, top twisted strips with additional cheese.

  4. Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve warm with warm pizza sauce for dipping.

Add a few dashes of dried oregano and basil leaves to the toppings for extra flavor.
