Brandie @ The Country Cook
pre-made pizza dough
2 (16 ounce) packages
individual mozzarella string cheese pieces
Italian blend shredded cheese
(or shredded mozzarella cheese)
(½ cup) salted butter,
garlic paste (more, to taste)
(or ½ teaspoon garlic powder)
dried parsley and dried basil,
Preheat the oven to 425F degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray or line with parchment paper
Stretch and roll out one package of pizza dough into a flat rectangle shape, making sure it is about ¼ inch thick across.
Place the string cheese in two rows, about 1-2 inches apart from each other on top of the dough.
Stretch and roll the second pizza dough to the same size and shape as the first dough. Then carefully lay the second dough directly on top of the first dough and string cheese.
Press down firmly between each cheese stick to close the seams between each piece. Pinch the ends of each piece to secure the cheese.
Using a pizza cutter, cut each breadstick out and separate the pieces from each other. Sprinkle the tops evenly with Italian blend shredded cheese.
Place the breadsticks 2-3 inches apart from each other on the baking sheet.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until fully cooked.
While the breadsticks are cooking, mix together the melted butter and garlic paste.
Remove breadsticks from the oven, and brush garlic butter over the tops. And top with dried parsley and dried basil.
Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
You can use homemade pizza dough if you'd like.
You can use the pizza dough in a tube as well (made by Pillsbury).
Like a stronger garlic taste? Dip your finger in the garlic butter mixture and add more garlic until you get your preferred taste.
For an additional kick, try sprinkling the top with black pepper or red pepper flakes.
Try different string cheese to change up the flavor.
