These soft and chewy breadsticks are studded with spicy pepperoni.
1 cup water
2 cup dried red & green bell peppers soaked in 1/4-cup water (optional)
1 package Pizza Crust Mix
2 tablespoons olive oil or garlic oil
yeast packet (included with mix)
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup diced pepperoni
4 teaspoons Pizza Dough Flavor
1 cup freshly shredded Parmesan or Asiago cheese OR an Italian mixture (mozerella, parmesan and provolone)
Mix together all the ingredients except the cheese -- by hand, mixer or bread machine -- till the dough is soft and supple. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll it into a 12 x 12-inch square. Cut into 1/2- to 3/4-inch-wide strips. Place the strips on a parchment-lined or lightly greased baking sheet, and let them rise for 30 minutes.
Bake the pizza sticks in a preheated 425°F oven for 8 minutes. Remove them from the oven, sprinkle with the cheese, and return them to the oven to bake for an additional 5 to 8 minutes, until they're golden brown and the cheese is melted. Yield: 20 to 30 pizza sticks.
