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!
