I love pizza - everyone in my house loves pizza (well, except for the 17-month old, she's not on board yet). What do we all love in addition to delicious, cheesy, tasty pizza? Cheesy bread!! Oh yes, the cheesy bread... yumm...


This recipe brings both of those happy delicious worlds together into one complete and cheesy meal! I love making one dish that will be completely devoured, leaving me no leftovers to put away, and happy full tummies in the process. Perfection.


The cheesy bread side is amazing. Ooey, gooey, garlicky, parmesan-ey, and mozzarella-ey... everyone was making happy googly eyes at these cheese sticks. There was gnashing of teeth over the last slice. These were happily devoured. Make sure to have a side of good marinara to dip these in - if you're a dipper.


I was offered the chance to review the Bru Joy Pizza Cutter Wheel and to give one away! I am very excited to share this terrific pizza cutter with you today, and just as excited to share the DELICIOUS half and half Pizza and Cheesy Bread Sticks recipe below with you. If you can't decide which you like better - pizza or ooey, gooey, garlicky cheesy bread sticks - then this recipe is definitely for you.


The Bru Joy Deluxe Pizza Cutter Wheel is fantastic - it has a great weight to it, and is perfectly sharp to give you nice, clean, all the way through cuts just the way you want them (without having to roll back and forth, and back and forth, or press so hard you're afraid you're going to break something).

Half and Half Pizza and Cheesy Bread Sticks adapted from Lauren's Latest

Ingredients

for the pizza dough
1 cup warm water
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 tablespoon honey {or sugar}
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
3 cups bread flour {give or take 1/2 cup...depending on the heat & humidity}

for the cheesy garlic bread sticks
2 tablespoons softened salted butter
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

pizza toppings
1 can mushrooms, drained
1/4 cup bacon bits
1/2 cup sausage, cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup BBQ sauce or marina
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions
  1. Prepare pizza dough by adding the yeast and honey (or sugar) to the warm water in the bowl of a stand mixer. Combine and allow to proof for 5 - 10 minutes, or until yeast is bubbly.
  2. Add in the salt, yeast, and half the flour. Fit the mixer with a dough attachment, and allow to combine, slowly adding more flour until the right consistency is achieved. On low-medium speed allow the dough to combine, when it starts forming a ball, set a timer for 5 - 6 minutes and allow it to combine and knead the dough.
  3. The bowl should be fairly clean, and the dough ball well formed. Remove the dough from the bowl, add a little bit of oil to the bottom of the bowl, return the dough to the bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel. Set in a warm place and allow to rise for 1 - 2 hours (will not double in size).
  4. When dough has risen, turn the oven to 500 degrees. Lightly flour your counter, and roll the dough out to the size of a 16" pizza stone (or pan if you don't have a stone) - it should be fairly thin.
  5. Place prepped dough on the pizza stone.
  6. Combine the softened butter and minced garlic (for the cheesy bread), and spread that mixture on half of the pizza dough. Top the butter, garlic mixture with the 1/4 cup grated parmesan and the shredded mozzarella.
  7. On the other half of the pizza, spread the marinara or BBQ sauce, then top with sausage, bacon bits, and mushrooms (or use other pizza toppings of your choice). Top with shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheeses.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted, starting to brown, and crust is golden brown and cooked through.
