Andris Lagsdin created one of my favorite kitchen gadgets, the Baking Steel. It’s one of those must have kitchen items… heck, even Rachael Ray swears by it! Pepperoni Pizza Sticks are just more exciting to eat than traditional pizza, in my opinion. Maybe it’s just the dunking of the sauce or because you can eat more slices and not feel so guilty? I’m not sure, but I do know that they are a hit whenever I make them. So “create the crust you crave,” with a Baking Steel and don’t forget extra sauce for dipping!
Enough dough for one average sized pizza (Recipe can be found here, or use your own)
30 slices of pepperoni
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cups pizza sauce, warmed
Grated parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning for topping
1. Heat oven to 400°F. Unroll dough; place on cookie sheet. Starting at center, press out dough into 13×9-inch rectangle.
2. Bake 7 minutes. Top with cheese and pepperoni.
3. Bake 8 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. Cool 5 minutes. Cut pizza in half lengthwise, then cut into a total of 16 strips. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.
