  • Wooden Skewers


Pizza Sticks

  • 8 mozzarella cheese sticks
  • 16 large pepperoni sandwich size preferred
  • 1 tube thin refrigerated pizza dough

Oil & Spice Mixture

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Put cheese sticks on wooden skewers.
  • In a small dish mix together oil and spice ingredients.
  • On a lightly greased baking sheet fold pizza dough in half and cut into 8 strips. Unfold a couple strips at a time and using a silicone brush apply oil and spice mixture.
  • Place two large pepperonis along one end of each strip. Lay cheese stick at a 45 degree angle on the first pepperoni and wrap dough around cheese stick to create a criss cross pattern.
  • Repeat until 8 pizza sticks have been made. Then bake in a 375°F oven for 10 minutes until dough is lightly golden brown and baked through.
  • Serve with pizza sauce or marinara sauce for dipping.


  • Keeping dough cold as long as possible makes it easier to work with
  • We prefer thin pizza dough as it cooks more quickly than a regular or thicker dough
  • We push wooden skewers about 2 inches into cheese sticks.
  • If cheese is visible through the pizza dough it will ooze out as it melts during baking, this is not a problem because it still tastes great
  • Pizzas stay on stick better once they've cooled and set up a bit
  • Refrigerated crescent dough can be used as well. The sheet will work the same way as pizza dough, the crescent rolls will need to have the seams pinched together
  • Ensure sticks do not stick off the edge of the baking sheet as they could poke in the blades of a convection oven and cause big problems, or just not fit in the oven
  • Brush dough on pizza sticks with a beaten egg white for a more uniform browning if desired - we usually skip this step to save time
