Cheesy Garlic Sticks

One of my favorite things from college was ordering late night "smotherella sticks". It was basically pizza bread, and then cheese, garlic and seasoning and you dip in your dipping of choice: mine was usually nacho cheese, ranch or garlic butter (this was college remember...not all that healthy). This recipe pretty much replicates those to a t! I would probably add a bit more garlic, or some garlic powder just because I like the garlic. The poster of the recipe stated that she uses the ball of mozzarella cheese instead of the already shredded-I definitely agree! The cheese got so gooey and delicious, and I don't think I've ever had that happen when I make pizza with shredded cheese. I used the pizza dough from a can, but you can buy dough from the bakery at the market, or apparently, Papa Murphy's will sell their dough as well. Make these the next time you're spending a night in or just want some yummy goodness! We rated it a 4/5.

Cheesy Garlic Sticks--adapted from Jam Hands
  • 1 pre-made pizza dough 
  • 1 ball mozzarella cheese
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon jarred minced garlic
  • Italian spice mix
Heat oven to 400 degrees (or as directed per the dough you are using). Prepare the crust to your desired thickness. Brush the crust with olive oil.

Cut or pull apart the mozzarella cheese and spread evenly over the crust. Sprinkle the minced garlic over the entire pizza. Add desired amounts of Italian spice mix over the whole of the pizza--generous portions will be okay here!

Bake about 15 minutes or as directed for your pizza dough.
