After I did my post on Tomato Bisque, a number of you contacted me, curious to know about the cheesy deliciousness that I served alongside the soup.
I call them Cheesy Garlic Pizza Sticks. It's a recipe that I made up on the fly. I wanted something full of cheesy goodness to nosh on alongside the soup; melted cheese and tomato soup always go so well together. My plan was that the soup was going to be a meal, so I knew I needed something to make it a bit heartier.
I had some pizza dough in the refrigerator (A can of Pillsbury brand pizza dough that I'd bought with something in mind, then completely forgot what that something was.), that was about to expire, so I popped it open, spread it out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, and went to work. I softened a bit of butter and smeared it over the top, then I added some garlic powder, garlic salt, and Italian seasoning, and then topped everything with layers of cheese, sprinkling a little dry parsley over the top for color. I used a pizza cutter to cut it into long strips, and then cut those strips in half. I slid it into the oven while I was warming the soup, and by the time the soup was ready, so were the little cheese garlic sticks.
They were so good that I could've made an entire meal out of them. Sometimes you just have to get creative.
Cheesy Garlic Pizza Sticks
1 tube Pillsbury refrigerated pizza dough, thin
2 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment (I use this kind.), and roll out pizza dough to fit baking sheet.
Spread softened butter over the top and sprinkle on the remaining ingredients in the order listed.
Bake 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and crust is slightly browned. Cut garlic sticks to desired size with pizza cutter.
