After picking up a bag of premade pizza dough at Trader Joe's today, I was inspired to not make pizza. I know, such a rebel! I made up this recipe for breadsticks to go along with a big salad for dinner tonight. I think I like making up recipes, maybe I'll try it more often. I smell danger ahead!
I brushed the dough with olive oil and sprinkled it with garlic salt and crushed red pepper. These would be delish with some freshly grated parmesan and oregano too.
Pizza Dough Breadsticks
Makes about 8
1 bag store-bought pizza dough
Crushed red pepper
Marinara sauce for dipping
1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
2. Take dough out of bag and let rest on a lightly floured surface for 20 minutes. After rest, use a rolling pin to roll dough into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. If the dough's too sticky, sprinkle it with flour until it's rollable.
3. Brush dough lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt and crushed red pepper. Use a pizza cutter (or knife) to slice the dough into strips about an inch wide. Transfer to a baking sheet.
4. Bake for 11-14 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
