Pepperoni Pizza Twists


Hosting a family movie night is a great way to spend time together, out of the heat, on those warm summer days. But planning a movie party will require snacks—and lots of them. Try this recipe for all the flavor of your favorite pizza in a grab-and-go treat your kids will go crazy for!


Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of pizza dough, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 6 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes (more or less to taste)
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese
  • 4 ounces pepperoni
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Sauce of choice, such as marinara or ranch

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Lightly flour a large cutting board. Roll out the dough, forming a rectangle.
  3. In a bowl, combine the garlic powder, parsley, Parmesan cheese, and red pepper flakes. Sprinkle about half of the mixture onto the dough.
  4. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese onto half of the dough, and top with pepperoni (note: if you’re using full size pepperoni, cut them into fourths first). Fold the dough over, covering the filling.
  5. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, carefully cut the dough into thin strips. Twist the strips several times, then press the ends down on a baking sheet to hold the shape.
  6. Brush the twists with olive oil and sprinkle with the seasoning blend.
  7. Turn the twists over on the baking sheet, again pressing down on the ends. Sprinkle with olive oil and seasoning blend.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until twists are a golden brown.
  9. Serve hot with your choice of sauces.
