Herbed Cheese Sticks- Taste of Home Tuesday

Another winner from the Taste of Home 100 Family Meals cookbook!  I'm yeast phobic, but we are a carb loving family.   These delicious cheese sticks start with a boxed pizza crust mix, but you could use ready made pizza dough.   We like the crispy golden edges of the restaurant chain versions, so I baked these in a 9x9 for about 13 minutes.    They made a great side for some ravioli.  Thank you to Heather B for sharing the recipe!

 I can't believe another week has gone by and it's Taste of Home Tuesday again!  Go check out what the other amazing Volunteer Field Editors have made this week by clicking the links below the recipe  :)

Preheat oven to 450°. Mix pizza dough according to package directions, adding garlic powder to dry mix. Cover; let rest 5 minutes.

Knead dough 4-5 times or until easy to handle. On a greased baking sheet, press dough into an 8-in. square. Brush top with oil; sprinkle with cheeses and Italian seasoning.

Bake 6-8 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned. Cut in half; cut each half crosswise into eight strips. Serve with pizza sauce. Yield: 16 cheese sticks.

  1. I have this bookmarked in my copy of the cookbook. So glad to know you enjoyed them. Need to make them soon.

    1. Jake's not a huge fan of sauce and almost always will eat cheese sticks over pizza. These are so fast and easy that I don't mind throwing them together for him.

  2. Not sure how I missed these in the cookbook! Thank you for bringing to my immediate attention!

    1. I marked a huge number of recipes to try with sticky notes, but every time I go through, I seem to add more of them :)

  3. This is something that would go over well for dinner at my house.

    1. I never gave much thought to the boxed pizza crust, but I plan on keeping on hand now!
