Ingredients

8 pop sticks
1/2 c
flour
1 can refrigerated pizza dough, 13. 8 oz
1 cup plus 2 tbsp. store bought pizza sauce, divided
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese, divided
1 cup toppings of your choice, optional, such as diced green bell peppers, diced yellow onions, cooked and crumbled italian sausage, sliced black olives or sliced button mushrooms
2 cups butter, 8 sticks
ΒΌ cup minced garlic

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 425. Lightly grease a nonstick baking sheet. On a clean work surface dusted with flour, roll dough into a 12 inch square, roughly 1/2 inch thick. Flour as needed to prevent sticking. Spread 1 cup of the pizza sauce over dough and top with 1 1/2 cups of the cheese and half of the additional toppings if using. Carefully roll dough and toppings from one end to the other, forming a log. Cut log into 8 equal (1 inch) rounds and put on prepared baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes. While rounds are baking toss remaining sauce, cheese and toppings if using in a bowl. Remove rounds from oven and to each with a small amount of cheese mixture. Bake another 5 minutes or until cheese is golden. Make the sauce: Melt butter in small pan over low heat. Strain through a mesh sieve into a bowl, discarding solids. Put remaining drawn butter and garlic in small pan and simmer over medium low heat 20 minutes. Thread rounds onto skewers and serve warm, with garlic butter dipping sauce. These are fun, different and delicious. Plunking each bite in the garlicy butter sauce is sheer heaven. But you can also sneak a bowl of Ranch dressing for dipping, too. Serves 4
