Pizza Breadsticks...another twist on Friday Night Pizza

I've filled you in on our little Friday-night pizza tradition, right? This is something we've done for the better part of maybe 5-6 years now. Is it EVERY Friday? Nope, but when we don't have pizza on Friday, I hear about it. When you have to eat pizza almost every Friday, you become quite the expert on "mixing it up". Today's post is one I got from my friend Elizabeth, when I lived in Denver. It is genius! It is delicious! It is EASY!!! It is not your average pizza! If you're looking for a way to "shake up" your pizza tradition...this is definitely the way to do it!!!

Elizabeth's Soft Whole Wheat Breadsticks

1 T yeast

1 1⁄2 C warm water

1 1⁄2 T powdered milk

2 T honey

33⁄4 C sifted whole wheat flour

1 tsp salt

2 tsp dough enhancer

2 tsp gluten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix yeast and warm water and let sit until fizzy; this will take a few minutes. Mix together powdered milk, and honey. Add yeast mixture. Add 2 C whole wheat flour, dough enhancer and gluten and sprinkle salt on top of the flour. (This will keep the salt and the yeast separate) Mix well. Add whole wheat flour 1⁄2 cup at a time until dough is just not sticky. Knead for about 8 minutes. Divide dough into 8-10 different segments. Roll out and smother in room temperature butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Add 1/2 of a mozzarella cheese stick and three pepperonis (if desired). Roll up and seal into breadsticks. Let rise for 20-30 minutes, or until breadsticks have doubled in size. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until light golden brown. Makes 8-10 large breadsticks

Dip breadsticks in pizza sauce. I usually just buy the Prego brand from the is so good!
