Pizza Twists – Adapted from the Weary Chef
- 1 recipe, quick 40-minute pizza dough
- 4 T quick and easy pizza sauce
- 6 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1/2 C diced Canadian bacon or pepperoni (optional)
- 2 T Parmesan cheese
- Italian seasoning (garnish)
Begin by making the pizza dough according to directions.
Divide the dough in half and roll each half of dough out into a large rectangle, the size of half a sheet cake. Top one half with pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni/Canadian bacon.
Carefully place the other pizza dough rectangle over the top.
Using a knife or pizza cutter, slice the dough vertically in 1 1/2 – 2 inch strips. Twist both ends and place onto a cookie sheet for baking.
Spritz lightly with olive oil, and garnish with parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning.
Bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes until the dough is cooked and the cheese has melted.
