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.

  • What exactly is pizza dough flavor?
    Pizza Dough Flavor is a combination of cheese, garlic, and natural flavors. It gives your homemade pizza that pizza-parlor punch! Irene @ KAF

  • Perfection! So tasty and so quick to put together. The whole family truly enjoyed these pizza sticks. I am always amazed at what a difference the pizza dough flavor makes! We have been long time fans of pepperoni bread, but I must admit that it was a great joy to be able to use the pizza mix for this recipe. Quick, no fuss and tasty!
