Cheesy Bread Sticks with Tomato Sauce

After teaching a pizza-making class this weekend, I have a bordering-on-absurd amount of pizza dough in my refrigerator. So, yesterday brought pizza spirals and today, I present to you: cheesy bread sticks.

Inspired by my hometown pizzeria’s delicious solution to excess pizza dough, I served these extremely kid-friendly bread sticks with tomato sauce for dipping, but they would also be right at home alongside salads, soups, or as the starch portion of a meal.

  • ingredients
  • flour for rolling and for pan Pantry
  • 1/2 recipe pizza dough $1.50
  • extra virgin olive oil Pantry
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella or provolone cheese $3.50 for 8 oz.
  • tomato sauce, for dipping $1.50 for a 15-oz. can
Total Cost of Ingredients $6.50

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly flour a baking sheet.

On a lightly floured surface, divide dough into 6-8 equal pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a 6”-7” snake.

Arrange dough snakes on the prepared baking sheet and brush lightly with the olive oil. Top each snake with a few pinches of cheese and bake for 14-16 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown and bubbly.

Serve warm, with tomato sauce alongside for dipping.

Makes 6-8 bread sticks.
