Pull out that old bread machine! I've decided that as long as I don't let it do the baking itself, the machine is great. I dislike the tough crust mine gets when baked in the machine but these are so fun and easy and good. Pizza in a stick.
I made breadsticks for the kids lunches once, and sent them to school with some cheese and jarred red sauce for dipping. Then I got more adventurous. These are a complete pizza in a stick form. The cheese, herbs, tomato sauce and even pepperoni are baked right in. I think I'll still give them some red sauce in the lunchbox, just 'cause dipping food makes everything better.
1 c. cold water
2 c. AP flour
1.5 c. oatmeal
1.5 tsp. salt
1.5 tsp. sugar
1.5 Tbs. butter
1.5 Tbs. dry milk
2 tsp. dry yeast
1/4 c. tomato paste (I did not use spaghetti sauce, so if you do, adjust the flour and herbs to the extra moisture and flavor)
2 Tbs. dried Italian herbs
~20 slices of pepperoni, chopped
I set my machine on "pizza dough" which includes mixing and one rise. Then I removed the dough and rolled it into sticks (I think mine made 12) and rolled them each in Parmesan cheese. I gave them about 30 minutes to rise in a warm location, then baked them for 25 minutes. Oh, the smell!
