Pepperoni Sticks and Pizza Pretzels

This is an all time fan favorite! At least in my household. These are really simple to make and kids can help. Perfect for school lunches, late night hunger or appetizers for unexpected guests.

DOUGH (breadmaker)

1 1/8 cups of warm water

1 tablesspoon yeast

1/4 cup sugar

add first three ingredients to breadmaker and leave for 3 or 4 min

add

1 egg

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup shortening

3 1/2 cups flour

NOW THE HOW TO

Once your dough is ready, preheat your oven to 250 degrees and turn off when heated. Place an oven safe dish in the oven filled with water. This will help your dough to rise and keep it moist.

Pepperoni Sticks

This dough recipe will easily make  2 dozen lunch size sticks or 4 dozen snack size

Slice pepperoni sticks in half. Then slice in half lengthwise. Each pepperoni stick yields 4 lunch size sticks.

Cut dough into 24 equal pieces. Roll dough out like a long snake. Wrap dough around the pepperoni stick on an angle. (like you’d see a peppermint stick or twisted ribbon or a barbershop sign 🙂

You don’t have to cover all the stick. Spaces inbetween the dough will fill in once the dough rises again.

Pinch ends together and roll pepperoni stick on table to smooth out dough (you can roll it in cheese if you want for a change)

Place wrapped pepperoni in oven on greased and floured cookie sheets (be sure your oven is off at this point) and let rise 20 to 30 min or until dough has doubled in size

Remove from oven and preheat oven to 375 degrees

Cook 5 to 10 min depending on size. Once the dough is nicely brown, they are ready.

To keep dough soft, brush with melted butter while still hot.

These freeze extremely well!

*NOTE Don’t have pepperoni sticks? Just roll dough out in cheese and make cheese sticks instead!

Pizza Pretzels

Roll dough out as described above (in pepperoni sticks)

Be sure to pre-heat your oven to 250 degrees and turn off when heated. Place an oven safe dish in the oven filled with water. This will help your dough to rise and keep it moist.

Twist dough into pretzel shapes or the intitial of your child. Any shape you like

Sauce:

Your favorite pizza sauce  OR mix the following ingredients

1 small can of tomato sauce

1 or 2 cloves of crushed garlic

1/2 tsp of italian seasoning

Brush sauce on rolled pretzels and put on greased and floured cookie sheet.

Let rise 20 – 30 minutes or until dough has doubled in size

Remove from oven and preheat to 375 degrees. Cook for 7 to 10 minutes or until nicely browned

Brush with melted butter once removed from oven to keep dough soft.

Bon appetite!

  3. Can I make it without a bread machine?

    • I have only ever made this dough in the breadmaker, however, it’s very similar to other doughs I’ve made by hand so I don’t see why you couldn’t.
